Sheet pan stir fry is one of the easiest ways to throw together a dinner for everyone. Loaded with a homemade sauce that brings the vegetables and chicken to optimal flavor.
If you are a fan of boneless chicken, this is a great sheet pan dinner to add to your list to make. Serve with brown rice, and dive in fork first.
Sheet Pan Stir Fry
If you are not sure what to make, this stir fry is always a good option. A homemade sauce you pour all over and as it bakes it soaks up all the flavors and blends it together.
What Vegetables to Use For Stir Fry
Essentially stir fry recipes can be very open to what you toss together. For me I reached for some frozen broccoli, green beans, and then I diced up peppers and such for added flavor.
Go ahead and raid your produce drawer and make whatever you want to go with your chicken.
Alternative To Rice
If you do not want to use rice to pair with your meat and veggies, that is okay. You can just do meat and veggies as the whole meal. Or use a cauliflower rice, quinoa, etc.
Whatever you have on hand or find would be a tasty alternative go for it. The cauliflower rice would be tasty for sure. Or you could even do something like zucchini noodles.
What Is The Best Chicken To Use
You will want to use a chicken breast or even chicken tenderloin that you dice up into cubes. Any style of boneless chicken is best.
As you want it to evenly cook the same as the vegetables, so nothing gets overcooked. If you use bone-in you will find the vegetables overcook a bit, and then you can’t have chopped meat like you would want with a stir fry.
Meal Prep And Storage
If you are a person who enjoys meal prepping this is a great chicken and vegetable recipe you can make and prep for quick lunches or even dinners.
Place the cooked mixture into an airtight single serve container with some rice. Then this becomes and easy grab and go meal you can heat up in minutes. Healthy veggies, nice protein from the chicken, and incredible flavor.
In terms of storage, this will store for a few days in the fridge. Just make sure that you
Can You Freeze
Now, if you want to freeze this is the vegetables will become a lot more soft when you go to reheating them in the microwave. Which if you don’t mind softer vegetables, you are more than welcome to freeze for up to 3 months.
