What’s in this Easy Chicken & Corn Stir-Fry?

When it comes to weeknight meals, you need something quick, fast, and in a hurry. This Easy Chicken & Corn Stir-Fry will meet your needs in terms of nourishment, but still packs a lot of flavor. You will need: 

  • Chicken thighs
  • Fresh or frozen corn
  • Oyster sauce
  • Toasted Sesame Oil
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Red Onion
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Rice
grilled corn

Tips to Make Easy Chicken & Corn Stir-Fry:

1) Corn. If you have leftover grilled corn I would highly recommend using that. BUT! If you are in a hurry, defrosted frozen corn works well too! 

2) Chicken thighs. I personally love chicken thighs because they have so much flavor. However, if you want to keep things lean you can substitute with chicken breasts. Also, if you want to try using flank steak that would be a delicious option as well! 

3) Veggies. I used red bell pepper and red onion in this dish. You can certainly swap out for kale, spinach, mushrooms, etc. This dish is a great way to use up ingredients in the fridge. 

4) Oyster sauce. Don’t be scared of the name. It actually doesn’t taste like oysters. Basically oyster sauce tastes like a deep soy sauce that brings umami flavors to a dish.
