Who doesn’t enjoy a classic Chicken Stir Fry?  Using the base ingredient of Cubed Chicken, this recipes comes together quickly. 

You can choose your own vegetables for this dish, but I love to gather all my favorite fresh vegetables which include: Broccoli, Onions, Mushrooms, Zucchini, Crook neck squash, Carrots, and Cauliflower.

Stir Fry Vegetables

Cut up about a cup of each, give or take.

With my chicken cubed, my vegetables washed and cut – I’m ready to get it cooking! 

My boys love the flavor of Yoshida’s Gourmet Teriyaki Sauce, so I add this to the chicken while it’s cooking along with some garlic. 

When the chicken is completely cooked I add in my harder vegetables first to give them a little extra time cooking. 

Stir Fry Chicken Bowl

Carrots seem to take the longest, so I add carrots and onions first (people have a thing against crunchy onions) followed by broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms. 

Last but not least I throw in zucchini and squash.  They tend to cook the quickest anyways.

Add some ginger to give those vegetables a little kick of flavor and just before it’s done cooking throw in some cashews to warm up.  These are two things that really kick it up a notch!

If you have particular eaters like I do, then cook the vegetables separate and serve them a plain Stir Fry Chicken bowl.

  • 3 Cups Cubed Chicken See Cubed Chicken Base Ingredient
  • 1 Cup Mushrooms Sliced

  • 1 Crook Neck Squash Sliced
  • 1 Cup Carrots Peeled and Sliced
  • 1 Sweet Onion Diced
  • 1 large Broccoli Florets Cut into smaller Florets
  • 1 Cauliflower Cut into smaller florets
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ginger

  • 1/2 Cup Cashew Nuts I use pieces


  • 2 1/2 Cup Rice
  • 5 Cup water
  • Dash Salt


  • Wash and cut all fresh vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Use Cubed Chicken Base Ingredient recipe to cook cubed chicken. Add 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce. If sauce gets too thick add a little bit of water water to keep it thinned down.
  • When chicken is done cooking, add vegetables. Add harder vegetables first to allow for longer cooking time. I start with carrots and onions and allow them to cook for a few minutes before I add broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms. I finish with zucchini and squash because they cook the fastest. *This helps to have cook the vegetables to the same softness.
  • Sprinkle Ginger over vegetables and add cashews. Stir and serve over white rice or savory rice.


  • Rice is always cooked with a 2 to 1 ratio. Two cups liquid to One cup Rice. Always add a dash of salt to your water. Place rice and water in a sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a boil.
  • Once you have a full boil, cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. Allow to cook for 30 minutes. Do not remove lid until it’s complete.
