Easy Chicken Stir Fry Recipe:

There are countless nights when we get home from a long day at work, and we have no ideas for dinner. We need something fast, yummy, kid-friendly and economical.

This 6-Ingredient Chicken Stir Fry checks all those boxes. The inspiration for this recipe came from our favorite Pot O’Gold cookbook.

Fast– this recipe only cooks for approximately 10 minutes.

Yummy– Miracle Whip gives a surprising, delicious flavor.

Kid-Friendly– kids love chicken and rice. Add whatever frozen vegetables your kids prefer.

Economical– Grab chicken and frozen vegetables when on sale, and use white rice which is very inexpensive.

Stir Fry with Miracle Whip

This easy stir fry recipe has a secret ingredient.

Miracle Whip

Crazy, huh?

Who knew that you could use Miracle Whip as the oil in a stir-fry? It gives the dish a nice flavor and has a high smoke temperature which is perfect for a stir fry.

Both Barbara and I like to keep bags of frozen veggies in the freezer for this type of meal, and we always have rice in the cabinet. With so many varieties of frozen mixed vegetables, you can customize this dish to meet your family’s demands (we mean tastes…no, demands is probably the right word).

There was a point in Barbara’s life when she never made rice because it never turned out. But then she bought a microwave rice cooker, and her life was changed forever. You get fluffy rice every single time. (As for me…I rely on the frozen steamer bagged rice or Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice.)
