Soo I have to admit… I’m kind of picky. I don’t really like Chinese food, and I DO NOT like sea food. You will never see me post anything fishy around here. ;)

There are a few Chinese dishes I do love.  I love PF Changs Lettuce Wraps and Honey Seared Chicken. And I like Pandas Orange Chicken with fried rice. That’s as far as it goes eating out.  However at home I love to make stir fry. It’s super easy and actually pretty healthy! I love that you can add variation as well. Like I said I’m kind of picky so I stick to bell peppers, carrots and maybe broccoli. So here’s my recipe… it may even be similar to yours!

Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry


  • 1 lb. chicken cut in strips
  • 1/2 onion cut in strips
  • 1-2 whole carrots cut in slices
  • 1 red, green and yellow bell peppers
  • 1 head broccoli
  • Any extra veggies you want to throw in
  • 1 1/2 cups of Yoshida’s Gourmet Sauce
  • 1 cup of Rice


  1. Start Rice First. Follow directions on package.
  2. Then slice veggies and chicken into strips.
  3. Next place the veggies and chicken in a large Wok or frying pan. Cook over medium heat.
  4. After a couple of minutes pour Yoshida’s sauce in. Let this cook for about 10-15 minutes over medium heat. Serve when chicken is done over rice.















Yum! I love chicken stir fry… so easy and YUMMY!! Perfect for summer.

    It’s odd, I love stir fry and it’s very easy to make, but I never make it. In fact i made it about a week ago for the first time in years. Kikkoman makes a really good stir fry sauce too.
    Thanks for posting!

      haha I know that was the same with me. The first 2 years I was married I NEVER made it! Now I make it about once a month. YUMMY!

    I absolutely LOVE Mr. Yoshida’s! We buy it at Sam’s Club. My grandma is Japanese and I know an authentic recipe for teriyaki sauce, but when I’m feeling lazy and craving some Americanized asian food, I use Mr. Yoshida’s. It’s quick and too easy!

      OH I bet that teriyaki sauce is good! My dad served a mission in Japan and always talks about the food there. But yes I’m pretty lazy when it comes to sauces. If I have one that already tastes good.. why not use that one?! lol
