Super Mom Stir Fry

The best Stir Fry ever! Takes 15 minutes to make this and uses *homemade* sweet and spicy stir fry sauce!! Seriously, add this to your weekly dinner rotation!

Why yes I just typed out that title.

“Super Mom Stir Fry”.

Who am I right now?

Just Mom. Not to be confused with Super Mom, although I like to lead you to believe that I am. In all reality, most days are filled with kids not wanting to do fill in the blank and me just trying to hold it together ’til bedtime. You may recall this Motherhood post.

Anyways.

Dinnertime may just be the worse part of the day. It used to by my favorite, but with no hubby home to help with the madness, I am back and forth between cooking and holding a cranky baby all the while fending off older children who are trying to snatch anything they can find in the pantry.

This is why I drink find ways to cut cooking times down as much as possible. I’m just forced to.

So, this is one of those pushed-into-a-corner-to-get-dinner-on-the-table-fast meals and it checks all of my boxes: healthy, easy, fast, good leftovers.

My secret? FROZEN VEGGIES. I found an “Asian Medley” in the freezer section and started using those for all my stir fry concoctions and haven’t looked back. It is such a huge time saver! I basically just add chicken and onions to my pan, add in these frozen veggies with a little homemade stir fry sauce and THAT IS IT. It takes mayyyybe 20 minutes to make if you’re working slow. But I can get this done in as quick as 10 minutes, mainly because I have this recipe memorized.

Of course you serve it with rice and eat it while its hot! If I have some cashews on hand, I’ll throw those into the mix too. It’s a great recipe to have on hand 🙂

  4. Dried ginger,? Sweet chile sauce ? Dying to make this but not familar with these. Not ground ginger?

    Reply
    • Dried ginger = ground ginger. I use the spice, not fresh.

      Sweet chile sauce {or sometimes spelled sweet chili sauce} is an orangy-pink sauce that is found in the asian foods section.

  5. Your homemade stir-fry sauce looks great and, best of all, contains everyday ingredients I always keep on hand (unlike most oriental-themed recipes). Plus frozen veggies are a Godsend! Saving this recipe for my next quickie supper, thank you!

  7. Please….what is sweet chile sauce? Something like adobo only sweeter? I have everything else I need to make this tasty-looking dish EXCEPT that! And if someone could help with a possible substitute for sweet chile sauce in case I can’t find it in my grocery store, that would be great. I live in a remote area where there are no Asian specialty stores or anything similar. Thanks!

  9. What if I don’t have sesame oil what can I use instead?

    Reply
    • There really is nothing like it to use as a substitute. If you don’t have it, just leave it out.

  15. I made this yesterday for my 3 teen-aged grandchildren and got raves from them. the oldest boy (16) doesn’t like vegetables except broccoli, so I added extra frozen broccoli to the mix and picked out some of the other vegetables for his serving. Worked out great. He had 3 helpings! Thanks for publishing this recipe, I will be using it often
