Healthy Chicken Stir Fry Recipes
Find healthy, delicious chicken stir fry recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Kung Pao Chicken with Bell Peppers
Here’s an easy chicken recipe you’ll definitely want to add to your dinner repertoire. A quick marinade tenderizes the chicken and infuses flavor in this healthy version of a take-out favorite. Adding a little oil to finish the marinade coats the chicken and helps keep it from sticking to the pan………………..

Chicken-Peanut Stir-Fry
There’s no need to order take-out when you can make this delicious meal at home. Using a ready-made broccoli slaw mix means there’s less vegetable prep time, so this chicken stir-fry with citrus-peanut sauce will be on your table that much faster………………

Sweet and Sour Chicken with Brown Rice
In about the time it takes to order and pick up Chinese takeout, you can make this much healthier version of sweet & sour chicken. Our version loses all the saturated fat that comes from deep-frying, along with the extra sugar and salt. If you prefer, use tofu instead of chicken, and use your favorite vegetables; just be sure to cut them into similar-size pieces so they all cook at about the same rate……………………….

Healthy Chinese Food Recipes for Weeknights
Sure you could just order takeout, but these quick & healthy Chinese food recipes are made for busy families. Stock your kitchen with a few key ingredients and have some healthy, go-to recipes you love. Better-than-takeout Chinese food is minutes away!

Slow-Cooker Char Siu Pork
While cooking pork in the slow cooker may not yield the crusty ends you’d get making a traditional Chinese roast pork recipe, the flavor more than makes up for it. It’s worth heading to your local Asian market for dark soy sauce for this recipe (or order it online)–it’s thicker than regular and less salty, with a touch of sweetness. You can make a substitute by combining regular soy sauce with a bit of molasses……………

Beef Chow Fun
Brown sugar added to black bean-garlic sauce is what gives this stir-fry its unmistakable Chinese takeout flavor. The recipe for beef chow fun works equally well with tofu for a vegetarian meal or boneless, skinless chicken breast. Serve with sliced cucumbers tossed with rice vinegar, sesame seeds and a pinch of salt……………….

Sweet and Sour Chicken with Brown Rice
In about the time it takes to order and pick up Chinese takeout, you can make this much healthier version of sweet & sour chicken. Our version loses all the saturated fat that comes from deep-frying, along with the extra sugar and salt. If you prefer, use tofu instead of chicken, and use your favorite vegetables; just be sure to cut them into similar-size pieces so they all cook at about the same rate…………………..
