Luckily, I already had this chicken & broccoli stir fry recipe waiting on the sidelines, so you don’t have to wait very long to get what you want! I usually plan out my recipes weeks to months in advance, so those responses will definitely impact my fall line-up this year.

In the meantime, though, let’s get to the stir fry!

I’ve got to admit that stir fries are normally far from my mind. Until I started testing this recipe, I hadn’t made a stir fry in…years.

But I’m in my especially busy season, photographing a wedding every single weekend from August to October. So I hunted for nourishing meals I could cook up quickly and use for leftovers.

Soon, I made this stir fry and immediately regretted not making stir fries more often. This is so simple, so good!

And the best part? I can whip up a batch of the stir fry sauce on the weekend and chop up the broccoli in advance. That means that prep is a cinch when I’m ready to cook up this meal. The hard part was done days before, so serving up this meal literally takes minutes!

I know, the recipe tells you to “whisk together” the stir fry ingredients. But you can also just add all the ingredients to a jar, cap it off, and shake it up. Works just as well!

Then store the jar in the fridge until you’re ready to stir fry. Shake it up again and use it! Easy as that.

I’m sure you could use this stir fry sauce with more combos of meat and veggies. Steak, snap peas, cauliflower… There’s a lot of potential here.
