Stir-Fry Chicken and Peppers

I think I would say this is one of my most favorite
Chicken Stir-Fry recipes.
I love the big chunky onions, peppers and tomatoes
and served over a thin pasta it is delicious!
1/4 dry sherry or apple juice
1/4 cup water
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp Chinese 5-Spice
1 Tbsp oil
1 lb. chicken breast strips for stir-frying
1 medium onion, cut into 8 wedges
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 medium tomatoes, each cut into 8 wedges

In small bowl combine sherry, water, soy sauce, cornstarch and
Chinese 5-Spice; blend well.  Set aside.
Heat oil in large skillet or wok over medium-high heat until hot.
Add chicken strips; cook and stir 3-minutes.
Add onion and bell peppers; cook and stir 4-6 minutes
or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Stir cornstarch mixture until smooth.
Add to skillet; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until
sauce is bubbly and thickened.
Add tomatoes; cook and stir until thoroughly heated.
Serve over thin noodles.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Alana, you inspire in so many ways! Your pictures are beautiful and I am definitely going to be trying this yummy recipe you've shared. I have it pinned to my "meat/fish board" on Pinterest. Thanks so much!

    1. Thank you so much Dianna! I am so glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we do!

  2. This looks delicious! I would not have thought to add apple juice into a Chinese chicken stir fry, but I bet it adds a nice, subtle flavour note. I haven't ever used Chinese 5-spice (maybe that's why my stir fry dishes lack a little something!) and will look for it next time I am in the store. Have you ever tried rice noodles? Some people might find them bland, but I love them. And they are way faster than traditional pasta.

    1. I haven't tried rice noodles but I am sure it would be awesome with this stirfry. I actually might pick some up for the next time I make this dish! Thanks so much for the suggestion :)

  3. That looks really yummy! I've never put stir fry on pasta - must try that some time!

    1. Thanks Manuela! I got the idea from a restaurant we went to some time ago :)


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
