Stir-Fry Guru Takes on…Quick and Easy Chicken Recipes

Italian, Asian and Mexican flavors work their magic in the wok.
Published November 13, 2015

To fully appreciate the versatility of stir-frying, try pairing chicken with a few different flavor and ingredient combinations. The results can be vastly different but equally delicious. For example, if you’re in in the mood for a one-pot meal with Mexican flavors, Chili Lime Bulgur Chicken combines garlicky chicken, vegetables and bulgur with lime zest and chili seasonings. If your tastes run toward Italian classics, you can stir-fry a Chicken Marsala in under five minutes and still achieve the same deep, rich flavors that make this recipe timeless. And if you’re yearning for something fiery, salty and sweet, there is always the traditional Chinese Spicy Chicken and Vegetables stir-fry. Beware — these dishes are simply addictive.
