  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
  • pieces assorted vegetables cut into bite-sized
  • 1-2 tablespoons avocado oil or other high-smoke-point oil


  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 11/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil


  1. Mix together all of the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Heat a wok over high heat with a small amount of oil inside. Quickly stir-fry the chicken in small batches (don't crowd the wok!) until it is no longer pink on the outside. Remove from wok and set aside.
  3. Reheat wok with a bit more oil. Stir-fry the vegetables in batches until bright and crisp, yet partially cooked. About 3 minutes.
  4. Add chicken back into the pan, and pour the sauce mixture over the top. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened.
