Chicken & Veg Stir Fry with Oyster Garlic Sriracha Sauce
Serves 4 with some steamed rice on the side
Time: About 30 minutes
Recipe Only

- 1/2 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 stem celery, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
- 1 medium carrot, cut into 1/8-inch thick slices on the bias (or don't cut it on the bias - whatever works for you)
- 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thigh meat cut into roughly 1-inch cubes
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 Tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 large cloves garlic)
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 1.5 Tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1 Tablespoon sriracha
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 Tablespoon distilled white vinegar

1) In a bowl, mix the chicken with the kosher salt thoroughly and evenly and set aside.

2) In another small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, sriracha, sugar, and distilled white vinegar and mix thoroughly.

3) Heat a wok, skillet, or large saute pan to high, add 1 Tablespoon oil, and quickly stir fry the onion, carrot, and celery for about 2 minutes or until the onion just begins to turn translucent. Set the veg aside on a plate.

3) Heat your pan back up to high heat, add the other Tablespoon of oil, and spread the chicken in a single layer on the cooking surface and let it cook undisturbed for about 2.5 to 3 minutes. (I know this defies the idea of literally stir frying, but home ranges rarely get hot enough to stir fry this quantity of dark meat at a time without releasing lots of liquid from the meat and/or generating steam, so in this case, it's actually better to leave the meat undisturbed at the high heat and let it develop a sear before you stir it.) Give the chicken a stir to redistribute and flip it, then let it cook another 2 minutes or so.

4) Stir in garlic and let it cook for about 30 seconds.

5) Add in vegetables and sauce mixture and toss to evenly season your stir fry.

That's it!

Enjoy with some steamed rice or as a lettuce wrap filling or whatever makes you happy. :)
