How To Make High Protein Chicken Stir Fry

To make High Protein Chicken Stir Fry, you’ll start by cutting chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and seasoning them with garlic salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. The chicken is then stir-fried until fully cooked and set aside.

Next, a mixture of minced garlic and ginger is sautéed in a wok or skillet until fragrant, followed by the addition of sliced red bell peppers, snap peas, broccoli florets, and mushrooms. These colorful vegetables are stir-fried until tender-crisp.

Once the vegetables are cooked, the chicken is added back to the wok, and a flavorful sauce made with low-sodium soy sauce, oyster sauce, ponzu sauce, and water is poured over the mixture. Everything is simmered together for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly and coats all the ingredients.
