Chicken Zucchini Mushrooms Stir Fry

Chicken Zucchini Mushrooms Stir Fry

Sharing is caring!

This Chicken Zucchini Mushrooms Stir Fry is a simple stir fry that we like to make! We marinade the chicken and then stir fry with sliced mushrooms and zucchini, and then either serve with white rice or noodles!

If you’re a fan of Panda Express’s Mushroom Chicken, you may like this dish! It’s got a lot of the same ingredients, however, I will definitely note that I prefer dark meat, so I use chicken thighs.

If you prefer white meat, you can cut chicken breast in to slices and make with this dish also. It’s up to you!

By the way – if you are not a fan of mushrooms, you are in luck, here is the recipe for Chicken Zucchini Stir Fry!

Chicken Zucchini Mushrooms Stir Fry Recipe

First gather your ingredients. You will need:

  • 1 lb boneless chicken thigh, cut bite sized
  • Marinade:
    • 1 tsp cornstarch
    • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
    • 1 tsp sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 2 garlic, minced
  • 3 garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and then sliced

With a knife, cut chicken in to bite size. In a mixing bowl, add the chicken marinade ingredients (chicken, cornstarch, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, honey, minced garlic). Combine well and then set it aside to marinade for half hour.

In a cooking pan or wok, add cooking oil, and let it heat up on medium high.

Add chicken along with all the marinade sauce, and stir fry for about 2 minutes or until chicken is no longer translucent, and immediately remove chicken from heat by placing in a big plate or bowl and set aside (try to keep sauce in pan).

Add a little more cooking oil if your pan is too dry. Then, add smashed garlic, zucchini, and mushroom and stir fry for about 5 minutes, or until mushrooms and zucchini start getting tender.

Return the chicken back in to pan, and stir fry everything for about another 2-3 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and all the veggies are tender.

Remove from heat and serve!

Hi there, other types of white vinegar will work too... like White Vinegar, Apple Cider Vinegar, as example. But I've actually forgotten to use vinegar before too, and it still turned out pretty yummy :)
