Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry

I have mentioned a few times previously that I love stir-fry recipes.

They are quick, easy, the meat cooks the way you want it to and the vegetables are crunchy as is with this Sweet And Sour Chicken Stir-Fry .

Maybe it is just me, but I like my stir-fries to have a definite crunch to the vegetables.

I really would not like to eat over cooked, mushy vegetables this way, or in most cases I should say.

To be honest, I have over stir-fried vegetables before and on the odd occasion I still manage to do that !

The big secret , is not really that big, constant (but gentle) stirring is required with any stir-fry.

Anyhow, broccoli and me, we have a great understanding ! Fresh broccoli is super to cook with, adds color and most important it contains loads of goodness !

I use store-bought Sauce when making this dish, which usually is a week night dinner and perfect for busy cooks.

Over weekends I do not mind making a sauce from scratch, but during the week, I am a little less picky.

Short cuts to a Stir-Fry

  • Use frozen bags of ready made Stir-Fry vegetables – you can cook them straight from the bag, no defrosting necessary
  • Buy your Chicken already sliced into strips – the price difference is very low
