Recipe: Thai Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry
As much as I love eating out at fancy restaurants and watching TV shows like Top Chef, the cooking that is closest to my heart is home cooking — dishes that are humble and maybe a little homely, but feel like the food equivalent of a warm hug.
This gingery chicken stir-fry is home cooking at its best: quick and simple to prepare, with a punch of flavor that manages to be both exciting and deeply comforting. Make it once and you might never call for Thai takeout again.
This was one of the first Thai recipes I ever mastered and it became pretty much an instant favorite. Like most stir-fries, the ingredient list is short and simple, but a magical transformation occurs once everything hits the pan, resulting in a finished dish that is somehow more than the sum of its parts.
Ginger is the key to that magic along with the umami-bomb combo of fish sauce and oyster sauce, it infuses the chicken and vegetables with a deep flavor in the hot wok or skillet.
If you are new to stir-frying, familiarize yourself with the basics in this cooking lesson from stir-fry expert, Grace Young, before you get started.
The key points to remember? Cut all your ingredients in uniform, bite-sized pieces have the meat, vegetables, and sauce prepped and within easy reach once you start cooking and cook over high heat and give the chicken some time to brown when you initially put it in the pan.
And if you already rely on stir-frying for quick, healthy, and satisfying meals, you will be happy to add this gingery recipe to your home-cooking repertoire.
The next time you’re seriously considering takeout, I encourage you to try this recipe instead. It will come together faster than the time it takes for your delivery guy to get to you and it will be even more satisfying.
Fish sauce and oyster sauce join forces to make one seriously umami-rich sauce for the chicken and veggies that’s accented by spicy, fragrant ginger. While I love the crisp, juicy bell peppers here, I could definitely see this recipe being super adaptable. Next time I plan to try it with broccoli florets that I’ve blanched so they finish cooking quickly in the skillet. I also think adding snow peas or sliced mushrooms would be nice.

Awesome Jenny! Thanks. Looks great
Can i suggest something? If its not tooo much trouble. Its not that i dont absolutly love this, and made my life 36839 easier. But maybe when you click on the pic you go to its receipe.
Denise – You mean the dozen or so photos above? That is already in place — did it not work for you? If you click on any photo on this page, it should take you to the recipe.
this is cool.
just a tiny thing I noticed: there are a few links clumped mistakenly together. Arugula, Asparagus, and Avocado all just link to Avocado.
the same thing happened with Yogurt and Zucchini, I think.
Fantastic! Just found this link, three months later.
I am looking for Emily’s Meatloaf , found it in the book but can’t find it on the website. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, I’m a newbie to your site, but I love it! Something that would be helpful for someone like me – having an alternate way of organizing the recipe by prep time (or maybe just a list of the ones that can be done in like under 15 minutes or something? I think that might be really helpful, especially in a pinch!
How I have enjoyed your blog on your trip to Paris, with kids. Though my boys are 36 and 34 and his 35 and 33, I found myself wishing I could have shared this experience with them. Richard and I just had a trip to Paris in April and cruised the River Seine. We have just traversed so many of the places you were describing and it gave me joy.
I, too, have a MacBook Pro and as I was sharing with family and friends, I discovered how easy the accents were to add on my MacBook. When you wish to add one to a letter, say as it Chateau, you would type c h a and hold down the letter you want the accent on and after a second or so, the list with the accents will appear and you enter the number corresponding with the accent you wish to add to your word. You can try to highlight the one you want, but I found it far easier to simply use the number! Try it… you will smile!
Au revoir, Madam and thank you for the lovely descriptions… you brought a smile to my face and a song to my heart!
Everyonne needs a good starting point, but every recipe does not need to bee followed exactly.
LIkewise, chicken livers could be fried and served with gravy.
95, or the Penne with Roasted Poscuitto which come
topped with mozzarella cheese for $10.
Not that this isn’t already a wonderful resource, and I know you have better things to do, but for some anal reason I can’t fully explain, I’d love to see them in alphabetical order.
Actually I was looking for a specific recipe you mentioned someplace and had to cruise slowly thru the list instead of just zooming down to the Ts.
PS – now that I think about it, never mind. I think it’s a good thing to make us look thru the entire list cause I found 3 more things I want to try.

106 Dinner Ideas
1. Oven Baked Pork Chops
Yummy and doesn't leave your stove top splattered
Cranberry Sauce (Canned or from scratch)
Scratch is so easy and so yummy. If you buy canned, be sure to get the whole berry kind!
Au Gratin Potatoes (Box or from scratch)
2. Hamburger High Hat
A family favorite like beef stroganoff stretches a pound of meat
Broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
Bisquick Cheddar Garlic Biscuits (Package mix or from scratch)
3. Personal Pizzas Pizza Hut copycat
This really did taste like Pizza Hut! Reduce the oil used in the pan by half sprinkle crust w/ parmesan cheese and oregano before baking don't forget to buy toppings as recipe doesn't include them.
Tomato Feta Salad
Really good! Refreshing and had a nice tang from the vinegar.
Little Caesar's Bread Sticks Copycat
Cathy's Homemade Salsa
Very easy and tastes like restaurant salsa
Mexican Black Bean, Corn, and Avocado salad
Really good and pretty easy
Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds
Pretty good basically potatoes with ranch dressing and bacon makes a lot, like 12 servings
6. Pampered Chef's White Chicken Chili
Very good and uses the microwave so fit for summer cooking I use a quarter of the amount of chiles because it gets hotter each day it sits in the fridge
Oven Roasted Vegetables
Bacon Onion Cheddar Biscuits
7. Honey Walnut Shrimp Panda Express copycat
I don't think I'll make this again. It tasted somewhat similar to the restaurant version, but it was very time consuming and requires frying in hot oil. Better to just go to Panda Express if you have one near you.
Cream Cheese Rangoons
These were really good, and although they required the work and mess of oil frying, I thought they were worth it. Don't add any more salt like I did-the first batch was better where I followed the directions! Minced water chestnuts would have added the slight crunch that the ones from Panda Express have.
8. Easy Chicken Enchiladas
Becoming a family favorite super quick
Fruit Kabobs: Strawberries, kiwi, grapes, peaches, & bananas on sticks
Quick and Easy Homemade Spanish Rice
Really good and very easy
10. Pot Roast
Homemade Apple Sauce
The taste was great, but it was still stringy and ot mushy after an hour of cooking, and I had to keep adding liquid because it kept cooking down. Not sure what went wrong.
Slow Cooker Cheesy Potatoes
Good, but needed more salt and pepper or some more layers of flavor!
11. Garlic Chicken
Definitely a family fave very tender and flavorful
Mixed canned fruit
Boxed wild rice
22. Chicken Parmesan
(Baked or slow cooker)
Ok, the baked recipe is actually pan fried then baked, and it is FREAKING DELICIOUS. I saved time by using jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the recipe's scratch sauce. I also didn't have any eggs in the house but the breading stuck to the chicken just fine anyway. I used Italian breadcrumbs even though the recipe didn't specify plain or Italian.
Tomato, Basil, and Cheese Baked Pasta
23. Chicken Fajitas
Guacamole - Alton Brown's recipe
Really good! Tastes better if you leave it chunky rather than smash it fine
Very good definitely tastes more like restaurant-made than canned I used salt pork and it was very good and not too salty.
24. Three Ingredient Baked Chicken
My favorite comfort food ridiculously easy to make
Mixed berry salad: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.

Back In The Kitchen
Oh, friends! I noshed my way through Central Europe! There wasn’t a piece of Slovenian cake, a slice of homemade bread, a plate of ćevapčići, a glass of Czech beer, or a carafe of Croatian wine to which I said no. It was glorious, and I enjoyed every non-paleo bite. Now that I’m back at home, I’m on my fourth day of a Whole 30 I-will-eat-clean-food-until-I-feel-awesome-which-will-be-more-than-30-days.
So I’m back in front of the stove, chopping and stirring. I’m working on new recipes to share next week: my take on ćevapčići and ajvar, plus a muffaletta relish and a sneak peak of one of my favorite recipes from Well Fed 2. While I’m doing that, I’m relying on some old stand-bys to keep us satisfied and help us transition from holiday-style eating (One day in Dubrovnik, the only thing we had for lunch was ice cream sundaes!) to 90% dino-chow.
In case you’re starting a Whole30 and need some good ideas to get you going, or are just looking for some menu staples that are very yummy and require minimal work, here’s what we’re eating right now:
Silky Gingered Zucchini Soup
I love this soup so much, I bought an $8 stick blender at Tesco in Prague so I could make and eat zucchini soup at breakfast during our trip. It was a little taste of home, and it’s my favorite sneaky-deaky way to get extra vegetables into my day.
The Best Chicken You Will Ever Eat
I grilled a double batch of chicken breasts, and we’ve been eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in different disguises. My best Hot Plate so far? Diced chicken breast, steamed cabbage, and leftover Casablanca Carrot Salad (a new Well Fed 2 recipe!).
Deconstructed Gyro Salad
I cooked a 5-pound hunk o’ lamb, and we’ve eaten it as a cool salad, and hot, alongside some plain cauliflower rice and broccoli tossed with melted ghee.
Grilled Roasted Chicken Thighs
I meant to make grilled chicken thighs, but the propane tank on our grill is empty, and the two of us were two lazy relaxed to make the 1-mile trip to the grocery store to replace it. Instead, I gritted my teeth, turned on the oven, and turned down the A/C thermostat to compensate. Here’s how I made stunningly delicious roasted chicken thighs that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. (This is so not a recipe it’s just a last-ditch effort to make something yummy that worked.) Preheat oven to 450F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lay out chicken thighs in a single layer and sprinkle generously with salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika on both sides. Baked 30-35 minutes until very dark brown and crisp. Eat like an animal.
Turkish Chopped Salad
In Croatia, Slovenia, and Prague, we ate a lot of Šopský salat, which is basically a chopped salad of cucumber, bell peppers, tomatoes, and onion, topped with Balkan cheese, which is like a mild feta. Back here at home, the cheese is verboten for a while, but we’ve been chowing the hell out of some chopped veggies. If you want to go all out, follow the Turkish Chopped Salad recipe for maximum summer awesomeness. If, like me, you’re not feeling like managing a bunch of ingredients, you can keep it simple: diced cucumber, bell pepper, and scallions, tossed with salt, pepper, a little olive oil, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Assorted Steam-Sautéed Veggies
In our fridge, we’ve got cooked cabbage, broccoli, and green beans. Plus a roasted spaghetti squash. Those veg are champs and are getting tossed into the sauté pan with protein, spices, and ghee… easy-peasy.
Egg Foo Yong
All the ingredients for this are ready-to-go in our fridge, thanks to a little pre-prep: cooked chicken, cabbage, scallions, and eggs. From “I’m hungry” to dinner in about 10 minutes.
