Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables to use in a stir fry. The florets hold so much sauce and each bite is full of flavor. The oyster sauce in this recipe also adds a savory note that we enjoy.

Ginger is one of the ingredients I tend to use most often for stir fry recipes. It is such a great addition to chicken and vegetable stir fries.

Most of our Asian dishes incorporate a bit of heat or spice however, this Ginger Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry is a very flavorful dish that my whole family enjoyed without any heat at all.

If your kids are new to Asian foods and they might like to try chopsticks, these are the best ever training chopsticks.

How To Stir Fry

  • Start with a wok or a large deep skillet to stir-fry. I’ve tried classic woks, countless skillets, and frying pans over the years. I now use this everyday pan to stir-fry and I absolutely love it.
  • I typically use tongs or a fish spatula for stir-frying. You can use any sturdy wooden or metal spatula, but fish spatulas really are the ultimate turner, stirrer, stir-fry tool.
  • Cut similar ingredients roughly the same size. Smaller pieces will cook faster, so making sure things are similar will keep things cooking evenly.
