Stir fries are one of those dinners that I rely on all the time. They are fast, easy, and I almost always have ingredients on hand that can quickly morph into some type of Asian inspired quick dinner. However, sometimes even the idea of standing at the stove for 15 minutes tending to an easy chicken stir-fry seems like too much work. On those nights, this is your recipe. No standing by the stove - just toss everything on a sheet pan and in no time you'll have dinner on the table.

Now in true short-cut fashion, here is what I recommend to really make this dinner quick and easy. Chopping veggies can be time-consuming, so instead head over to the freshly bagged produce and grab a bag of Asian veggies. I got mine at Trader Joe's and everything is pre-chopped and ready to go. All I had to do was break up a few pieces of, especially large broccoli. Then while the chicken was cooking, I popped a bag of frozen brown rice into the microwave. Three minutes later - perfectly cooked brown rice. You could use quinoa, brown rice, or cauliflower rice - all of which is now readily available in the freezer section of most stores.

Tips for Making Sheet Pan Chicken Stir-Fry

  • This is one of those recipes where you can play with the proportions in the stir-fry sauce until it is exactly what your family likes. If you like a thicker sauce, use extra oyster sauce. For a sweeter sauce, add more honey. If you love spice, then up the Asian chili paste or use Sriracha if that is what you have on hand. You can also add some fresh garlic and ginger to the sauce and sometimes I use hoisin sauce instead of oyster sauce if I run out.
  • When it comes to veggies, the sky is the limit. Usually, I opt for a pre-chopped bag of Asian or stir-fry veggies since it is usually cheaper than buying all the individual vegetables and it cuts down on prep time but you can definitely create your own mix. Just try to use vegetables that cook relatively quickly and if you use heartier vegetables like sweet potatoes or butternut squash, toss it in the oven beforehand to let it precook.
  • I have made a vegetarian version of this recipe using tofu that turned out great. Make sure to dry the tofu first using paper towels or a tofu press. For a bit more crunch, toss it with cornstarch before adding it to the sauce.
  • This recipe is excellent for meal prep. Make up a batch on the weekend and quickly pack it for weekday lunches. Just add a grain like brown rice, quinoa, or farro or opt for a low carb version like cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash. Make sure to drizzle the grains with the extra sauce from the sheet pan for extra flavor.

What to serve with an Asian Chicken Stir Fry

  • Go the classic route and serve this with white rice, brown rice, or quinoa.
  • For a low carb option, make some cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash.
  • Cook up some rice noodles or soba noodles in the same stir fry sauce. Just double up the stir fry sauce recipe and you will have plenty to make a quick stir-fried noodle to serve on the side.
  • For a light and healthy option, serve this over a big bed of greens or wrap it up in lettuce wraps.
  • Pick up some sushi in the stir and make your own bento boxes at home.

Can I make this with chicken breast?

This recipe will also work great with chicken breast, you just have to be a bit more careful with the cooking time to make sure the veggies are cooked through without the chicken becoming overcooked. Consider starting the veggies first and cooking them for 5-7 minutes. Then add the chicken to the pan so you can remove it as soon as it is cooked through. Chicken breast over-cooks more quickly than chicken thighs, which tend to be more forgiving.

How to make sure the vegetables aren't crunchy?

This recipe results in vegetables that are tender-crisp at the end, meaning they still have some crunch. It also relies on vegetables that are sliced fairly thin so that they cook quickly. If you are using larger vegetables or prefer your vegetables more cooked, you will want to start cooking the vegetables for about 8-10 minutes before adding the chicken. This step also may be necessary if you are using vegetables that take longer to cook, like butternut squash, or using larger pieces. If you would like everything to cook together, make sure it is cut on the smaller side.

Looking for more healthy Asian dinner recipes?

Here are some tools and products I used when cooking this recipe:

  • Baking sheet: There are so many options out there but I have been using this brand for years and find they hold up really well.
  • Low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos: When it comes to soy sauce, I always opt for low sodium soy sauce and many times use coconut aminos instead which have lower sodium and are gluten free.
  • Sambel olek: When it comes to Asian hot sauce, I switch between Sriracha and Sambal Olek, a thicker chili paste flecked with garlic. I can't decide which I like better, but I love the garlic flavor in the sambel olek.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the chicken into 1 inch slices.


Mix together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, and garlic chili paste. Add the chicken to the mixture. If you have time, let the chicken marinate in the sauce for 15 minutes. You can also marinate longer if desired.

For those who would prefer the tofu option (great suggestion, by the way), I discovered during my vegan phase that if you take a block of firm tofu, slice it into two thinner layers, press them between paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible, then freeze them - wrap first in plastic wrap and then foil - it gets a texture when defrosted that is very like sliced chicken breast. I preferred this to the smoother texture, and it absorbs flavor just as well. Also, if you're doing a lower carb version, Swerve makes a zero-carb brown sugar you can substitute for the regular brown sugar in the recipe, if that's what you're using.

All of that said, I am now going to grab my ingredients and make this for lunch!
