Sweet & Spicy Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

Soy sauce mixture:

  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken broth (plus more if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional

Other Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces 100% whole wheat linguine (about 3/4 of a box)
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 an onion, sliced thin
  • 1 package fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red pepper, trimmed and cut into strips
  • 1 8 ounce package mushrooms, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 cup edamame, shelled


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, chicken broth, oyster sauce, brown
    sugar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and Sriracha (optional); set aside, reserving 2
    tablespoons. In a large bowl, combine reserved 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture
    and chicken; set aside.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package
    instructions, drain well.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add
    chicken to the skillet/wok and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about
    3-4 minutes. Remove chicken from pan to a plate. Add 2 more teaspoons olive oil
    to pan. Add in onion, broccoli, carrots, red pepper strips, and mushrooms, stir fry for
    6-8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Pour in soy sauce mixture and cook until
    heated through, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and linguine back to vegetables.
    Cook 2-3 minutes to combine flavors, add a little more chicken broth if needed.
    Note: If you are cooking for kids or others who don’t prefer the spiciness of the
    sriracha, you can always add a few drops to your own individual portion.
