How to Make Tasty Chicken Stir Fry with Veggies

Stir frying chicken with veggies is really easy, it always makes a quick meal full of goodness. 
Adding spices and sauces are of-course to your liking but some how in my eyes, a great chicken and veggie stir fry is with just a few ingredient's and nothing more than two sauces. 

This dish has to highlight the veggies and chicken so adding too many sauces can over power the dish.
My fav combo is soy and oyster sauce, a true match every time. 
Here's my go to stir fry which i have at least once a week.
After trying many variations this one is my favourite and over the years I have now learnt on getting the best out of this humble mix veg and chicken dish by cooking it just right, in my eyes of course !
Just saying !!!!
 
Serves two

I use only these veggies and nothing more

1 Carrot cut in squares
1 Green capsicum cut in squares
5/7 large mushrooms cut
1 cup snow peas
1 small zucchini cut in squares
1 large chicken breast cut in strips, marinate with a pinch of sugar, salt and chilli sauce.
Marinate for half an hour.

2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs oyster sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp chicken stock powder
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp freshly cracked pepper
salt to taste

1 tbs garlic minced
1 tbs ginger grated
Spring onions for garnish

Not adding even one ingredient makes a world of a difference, i highly recommend you guys stick to the listed ingredients for best results.

Before you start cooking make a sauce mix, add the water both the sauces, pinch of salt,chicken powder, sugar and the corn flour. Mix well and keep aside for later.

~ In a pan boil some water and add salt along with the vinegar,add in the chopped carrots and boil for 5/7 min, you may boil them a little longer if you want them a bit more cooked but its best to keep a bit of a crunch.Once the carrots are boiled drain and transfer to a plate.

~ In the same boiling water add in the snow peas and zucchini, boil for just 2 min, drain and transfer to a plate.

~ Last add in the capsicum and boil just for a min, drain and keep aside too.

~ Now its time to stir fry, use a large pan for this. Add some veg oil and saute the marinated chicken, let the chicken cook, almost 90 % done. Add in the ginger and garlic at this stage, adding it before will burn the garlic so add it only once the chicken is half cooked.

~ Next add in the mushrooms and cook for 2/3 min tossing with the chicken.

~ Transfer all the veggies to the pan and toss well, add in the sauce mix and allow to coat all the veggies and chicken. Toss well till the sauce thickens, now add in the crushed pepper.

Once done, garnish with spring onions.

You can have this with steamed rice or even just as a side dish or even as a main meal its yum any time, hope you guys try it out.
