I will give you the best recipe for making the perfect stir fry. But first, I will answer the question: Do you cook chicken or vegetables first in a stir fry?
Meat first, then vegetables, If you want meat or seafood in your stir fry, cook it first then scoop it out onto a separate plate before cooking the vegetables.
What you need for making the perfect stir fry:
- 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless, cut into pieces
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 cup of broccoli
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 4 Tbsp. soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp ginger
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
- Seasoning to taste
How to prepare And the duration of Cook this stir fry:
Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl and then add chicken. Marinate for a lot 30 minutes or longer in the refrigerator.
On medium heat, add olive oil to the pan and then add the onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes until soft.
Add the broccoli and peppers. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Remove veggies from the pan and add in more olive oil.
Place chicken in the pan, reserving the liquid for later. Cook until the chicken is done.
Add the veggies and liquid marinade over the chicken.
What is the healthiest oil for stir-frying?
Most of the oils have high smoking points yet they are healthy. Therefore, I would say canola oil is best used because it’s neutral in flavor. You can also use rice bran oil, peanut oil, coconut oil, or sesame oil.
Top with red pepper flakes, sesame oil, and more seasoning to taste.
Cook on low for an additional 3-5 minutes.
