Easy Sheet Pan Stir Fry

On a busy night, one-pan dishes are one of my favorites since they don’t have much cleanup. This stir fry is made in a sheet pan, eliminating the messy stove splatter of a wok. (not something I love cleaning up when it’s late at night!) This recipe doesn’t sacrifice on flavor or texture and tastes fresher than takeout.

A stir fry also gives me the opportunity to use up a variety of items in my pantry. This recipe works for any type of stir fry vegetables, so you don’t have to go out and buy specific veggies.

How to Serve This Sheet Pan Stir Fry

Rice: Serve this stir fry over rice, which will make your rice flavorful. If you are in a time pinch, you can easily use frozen rice.

Fried Rice: Make it a fuller meal with my better-than-takeout fried rice recipe.

Lo Mein Noodles: My kids love stir fry with lo mein noodles. If you use this, double the sauce since the noodles tend to absorb a lot of the saucy flavor!

Low Carb: Serve this stir fry with cauliflower fried rice for a low carb dinner.

Dumplings: Boiled or steamed dumplings can be tricky to make, but frozen dumplings provide a delicious contrast with this stir fry. If you make these too, make some extra sauce to drizzle over your dumplings.

Variations

Vegetarian: Replace the chicken with tofu to make this delicious dish vegetarian.

Wok-Friendly: Want to make this in a wok? Cook the chicken separately, add all other ingredients to a wok according to the instructions. Add cooked chicken and drizzle with the sauce.

Tips

  • Sesame oil gives your stir fry the best Asian, restaurant-like flavor.
  • Using a lower-sodium soy sauce will not sacrifice flavor.
  • For more sauce, double the recipe, still using half to marinate the chicken and the other half to thicken on the stovetop.
  • Preheating the sheet pan gives the meat and vegetables a little sear when they go into the oven.  You can also toss the vegetables with a bit of olive oil before putting on to the sheet pan, but it’s not necessary.
  • It’s really important to drain off the liquid/marinade from the chicken.  If there’s moisture going into the sheet pan, it makes everything mushy and muted in color.  

How to Store the Sheet Pan Stir Fry

You can store this stir fry in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or up to 3 months in the freezer.
