Lemony Chicken Stir-fry ~ recipe

We enjoy stir-fry dinners but don’t do them much because so many of the recipes require soy or corn in one way or another. I figured out a better way from looking at a few different recipes and came up with my own version that was loved.

Lemony Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe

1/2 onion – chopped
3 carrots – chopped into small bits
3 large chicken tenders or 2 chicken breasts – cut into small pieces
3 cups frozen broccoli
1/2 C lemon juice (I just used the bottled kind and eye balled it.)
4-6 T honey (Again, I just eye balled it and you can adjust after it is added to the stir-fry.)
2 T worchestershire sauce
1/4 C water
1 T potato starch (can use a cornstarch, instead)
garlic powder
ginger powder
coconut oil

  1. Prep the veggies and the meat. Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic, and ginger over the uncooked chicken after it is cut. Steam the broccoli in the microwave.
  2. Mix the lemon, honey, worchestershire, water and potato starch in a small bowl.
  3. Heat coconut oil in a skillet until hot. Add the onions and carrots. Cook on medium high heat until the carrots are beginning to get tender.
  4. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until done. Depending on the size of your pieces of meat, it should only take 8-10 minutes, stirring often. Add more coconut oil if the chicken is sticking to the skillet.
  5. Add the broccoli. Stir well.
  6. Add the lemon mixture and stir well. Heat until the mixture thickens and coats everything.
  7. Adjust your flavors. We added additional lemon juice and a bit of salt at this point. Add what tastes good to you.
  8. Serve with rice.

      Beautiful thing about stir-fry is you can do whatever veggies you want or have on hand. Nothing required. 🙂

    That does look delicious! I don’t make stir fry nearly enough.

      Thank you. I don’t make it enough, either. My girls always love it.
