What’s not to love about stir-fries ? They are quick, easy and loaded with vegetables !

This Thai Chicken Stir-Fry is on the table in 25 minutes. Perfect for a busy week night dinner.

I think after meat/chicken etc loaded salads, stir-fries are our most go-to dinner recipes. Hubby still needs to help me in the kitchen, and when is called out for a job, I never know (or usually don’t!) what time he will be home.

Therefore, quick and easy recipes are the thing in our kitchen !

My son is also always on the go and as much as he tries, giving a time to be home for dinner is not always the case. Fortunately a stir-fry can stand a while.

Simply a matter of re-heating the dish. The pasta is another story, obviously. But also not a train smash, I stir through a little bit of extra virgin Olive Oil and keep the pasta covered.

A quick re-heat when he gets home and the Stir-Fry is just as delicious as when served immediately after cooking.

Can you use any vegetables in a stir-fry ?

Absolutely ! The only thing to keep in mind is to choose vegetables which will go well with your sauce. Most do in fact, so you do have a very wide variety to choose from. And that means, no two meals ever need be the same.

Does a stir-fry have to be saucy ?

Yes, and no. This is really a personal preference. You can always double a sauce recipe if you like a saucier stir-fry, or use as per the recipe. My own preference is that all the stir-fry ingredients need to be hugged in the sauce with a little bit left to drizzle over.

Do you have to use a wok ?

No, you don’t.  I prefer a wok, whether it be an electric wok or a stove top wok. However, for years I have used a standard, large and deep-ish, skillet to cook my stir-fries in. (Cast iron is the best !). As long as there is enough space to stir-fry your ingredients comfortably, it will be fine.

4 Servings/People indicate adult sized servings. The stir-fry is more than enough for up to 6 people – 2 adults and up to 4 younger kids.

A Stir-Fry is also very simple to double or even triple the ingredients. Have friends over during the warmer months ? Try out your barbecue’s wok attachment! Cut out the pasta, and serve the stir-fry with one or two simple salads. Nothing too much, as you want the stir-fry to be the star dish, right ?
