Chicken Stir Fry

Chicken Stir Fry is my all time favorite meal. I truly could eat this just about every day.   It is easy and has lots of vegetables.  The only down side is washing the Wok but we have the kids for those chores.

It is a very versatile dish because you really can add any vegetable or meat you prefer.

Chicken Stir Fry


Sometimes when we feel fancy, we use strip steak instead of chicken. The executive chef of the Frugal Family (the hubby) prefers steak to chicken. So when steak is on sale, we splurge for steak.

Another option is to use both chicken and steak so everyone is happy!  It is pretty easy to have steak and chicken in the same dish.  We use 1/2 lb of chicken and an 8 oz steak. We cook the steak in the Wok first. How long depends on how rare you like steak.  Once done, take the steak out of the wok, rinse the wok and cook the chicken.  Before you add the sauce to the wok mixture, add the steak back into the wok.

Happy eating!
