Stir fried chicken is always great for any family dinner.  For several recipes crawling in the web to day, there may be a special recipe that one family will adore and love once they have tried it cooking at their own kitchen.  Here is a simple chicken stir fry recipe that goes with linguini where our family finishes them down to the last piece.  

This succulent and flavorful dish is filled with the rich combination of chicken and vegetables that goes perfectly with the linguini noodles.  So let us start cooking them.  The original ingredients here can serve 4 persons and can be prepared quickly and easily.

  • 8 ounces whole wheat linguini noodles
  • ¾ cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons expeller-pressed canola oil, divided into two
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless, chicken breasts or legs, cut them into small strips
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh gingerroot, peeled and minced and chopped
  • 3 cups of small broccoli florets sliced coming from a large broccoli crown
  • 1 carrot, already peeled and chopped into thin strips for quick cooking
  • Cook linguini according to package instructions, then drain them and please keep them warm too. 
  • Then combine the broth, the soy sauce, the vinegar, the pepper and the cornstarch in a bowl and mixed them until they are smooth.  Please make sure that the cornstarch is fully dissolved then set them aside.
  • To start stir frying, heat a wok or a large skillet over medium high heat over your American stove.  When hot, pour in a1 tablespoon of canola oil into the wok and wait till it is hot and starts to smoke.  
  • Then you can pour in the chicken strips and constantly stir fry them until they are lightly browned and almost cooked through.   The cooking time here is about 2 minutes only.  This time you can cooked the chicken strips in a batch only.  Then remove them from the wok and set aside.
  • Please add the remaining canola oil and heat the wok up a little.  Once hot again, add the garlic, the gingerroot and then stir fry them for only 30 seconds.  
  • You can now add the vegetables; the broccoli florets and the carrot strips and continue stir frying for about 2 minutes. 
  • Then you can add the soy mixture and the chicken and mix them well, then cover the wok.  
  • Please lower your heat to medium and let it simmer until the vegetables are crisp tender for another 3 minutes or so.  
  • Lastly, toss in the linguini noodles to the wok and mix them. 
  • Serve immediately while it is hot.  For some, they pour a little extra virgin olive oil for added taste to the dish.  But without it, the dish still tastes perfect.
Enjoy cooking this stir fried chicken recipe at home and surprise your family on a quiet weekday night.  They are as good as they look and its taste is comparable to restaurant cooking.  Please continue stir frying too.
