The Simplest Stir Fry

If there’s one thing that is perfect for meal-planning and weeknight meals, it’s the simple and classic stir fry. I am fully aware that I have not been exactly on-point recently about posting recipes. In all honesty though, there’s been nothing particularly exciting about pan-frying chicken and boiling vegetables with hummus. I kid you not, this is how I eat. Practical. Done in 30 minutes. And it’s not especially photogenic. Thankfully, this stir-fry is exceptionally beautiful and hence: unexpected recipe post!


  • 6 chicken filets (one one package) – raw
  • 1 broccoli stalk, cut into florets
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 yellow bell peppers
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce (light)
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • a heavy HEAVY dose of olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  1. First mix together your chicken marinade – i.e. soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic powder, pepper, salt and oyster sauce.
  2. Chop your chicken into bite-sized pieces and find a ziploc bag. Toss in your marinade and chicken for 15 minutes while you prep the vegetables
  3. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 425 F and proceed to chop up your broccoli, bell peppers and onion. If it doesn’t take you 15 minutes… chop a bit slower
  4. Take out your oven pan, line with foil and put the veggies on, seasoning generously with salt and pepper (a little lime wouldn’t go amiss either)
  5. Then add on the chicken and marinade – making sure to mix everything so the sauce gets ALL of the places
  6. Pop in the oven for 14-16 minutes
  7. Enjoy šŸ™‚
