This Thai stir fry is one of my favorite meals of all time! Best of all, it’s quick enough to throw together on a weeknight.

Y’all, this is one of my favorite meals of all time. A friend introduced me to it after studying abroad in Thailand. She took a Thai cooking class and this was one of the things she learned.
Like all good weeknight meals, this is a great way to use up vegetables. Just about any combination of vegetables works, and you can use one of those frozen stir fry vegetable bags if that’s what you’ve got. I try to supplement those frozen bags with just one fresh one, but it’s honestly whatever you’ve got on hand.
This makes 4-5 servings, so perfect if you’re a couple wanting leftovers or to serve to friends or family.
Thai Stir Fry
- 2 cups uncooked rice
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
- approximately 1 pound mixed vegetables, fresh or frozen
- 1-2 tbsp ketchup
- 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
- 2-3 tbsp Thai chili sauce
- Cook the rice according to the package instructions. I love my rice cooker and use it all the time!
- If your veggies are frozen, start by cooking those. In a large pan or skillet, heat 1 tbsp of oil and then add your vegetables. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the diced chicken. Add 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp Thai chili sauce here. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
- Once the chicken is just cooked through, turn off the heat but leave on the burner. Add the cooked rice and 1 tbsp ketchup and stir well.
- Taste the rice at this point and see what you need more of flavor-wise. I tend to use a 2:2:1 ratio of Thai chili:soy sauce:ketchup, but you can adjust the flavoring to what you want! Add more Thai chili if you want more spice, and more soy if it needs more salt.
Thai stir fry is that easy! And it’s one of those meals that tastes even better the next day for lunch.
What’s your favorite weeknight meal? I also love kale & pomegranate salad or shrimp scampi as quick dinner options!
