⭐ Family Foodie Tips
- Try varying your stir-fry vegetables when you want to mix things up. There are so many different varieties of frozen stir-fry vegetables, you can make it however you like.
- Teriyaki stir-fry is delicious with other protein, too. If you have leftover pulled pork, you can make the most amazing Teriyaki rice bowl or pork fried rice. You can even use leftover steak to make a teriyaki beef stir-fry.
Top tip: don’t feel like rice? Make your stir-fry with noodles, instead. Chow mein or lo mein noodles are great choices for a stir-fry. I also love to stir-fry soba noodles!
Most Asian noodles take very little time to cook up, so they’re a great choice for stir-fry. If you’re on a budget or happen to have it on hand, you could even make a ramen stir-fry by leaving out the flavor packets.
👪 How many people does chicken teriyaki stir-fry feed?
Chicken stir-fry is one of the best few ingredient recipes because not only does it take just 5 ingredients, but it easily feeds a family of 4. Plus, it is super simple to scale up!
If you want to feed a larger group, you can double the ingredients to have enough for leftovers. For just a couple more servings, try adding an extra half of all the ingredients.
Just make sure not to overcrowd your pan when cooking chicken, or it won’t cook evenly!
🥗 What goes with stir-fry?
I like to serve my stir-fry with simple side dishes that complement the flavors of the veggies and chicken.
Here are some of my personal favorite choices to serve when I’m making a stir-fry recipe at home:
- Blistered Shishito Peppers with Pesto Dip
- Spicy Chinese Chicken (in place of the chicken in this recipe – you need to try this!)
- Chicken Sausage Rolls with Sweet Chili Thai Sauce
- Thai Chicken Meatballs
- Shrimp Shumai Recipe (Shrimp Dumplings)
