This weeknight chicken stir-fry recipe is one of my favorite go-to family meals because it’s simple, delicious, and completely customizable. You can easily adjust the ingredients to suit your family’s tastes, or just use whatever combo of meat and veggies you happen to have on hand at the moment!

Hip tips for making this easy chicken stir-fry recipe:
- Feel free to substitute the veggies for the ones that your family loves. It’s also a great opportunity to use up leftover veggies from your fridge.
- At the very end of this recipe, I made a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce. It’s a small additional step, but it’s worth the little bit of extra effort. It adds a great “take out” style texture to the sauce and helps the sauce to better “stick” to your meat and veggies.

This is a delicious homemade meal that my kids look forward to, and I love that they’re getting a generous serving of veggies in every bowl. Best of all, it’s an easy no-fuss dish to serve up on busy weeknights. I love how versatile this recipe is too.
Not only can you customize the veggies, but you can choose your protein as well. Sometimes I change things up and add shrimp or steak instead of chicken. That’s always a big hit with my family, and it makes this recipe feel like a brand new dish every time. YUM!
