Chicken stir fry healthy tip: if you want to limit the amount of olive oil you add, pour the oil into the wok and use a kitchen towel to wipe and spread it, then place the wok on the fire.

Step 3

Add a tablespoon of olive oil in the wok and place it on medium fire again. Fry the chicken, but don’t put too much in the wok in one go. Fry in 2 or 3 rounds if necessary.

Chicken stir fry technique tip: to help the chicken remain tender, put it into the wok when the oil is hot, and then don’t stir for 1 min. After that carefully flip the chicken cubes over a few times until all sides are cooked.
