This Chinese 5-Spice Chicken Stir-Fry with Vegetables is the quickest and easiest way to get a nutritious meal on the table in under 30 minutes. My homemade chicken stir-fry sauce makes this a healthy alternative to Chinese Take-Out dinners!
Add chicken, five-spice and salt in a bowl. Using a spoon or your hands, combine to coat chicken with spices.
Cut bell peppers into strips, then cut these strips in half. Make carrot ribbons using a vegetable peeler and cut broccolini into smaller florets.
In a medium bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients.
Add another 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add veggies and stir fry for about 2 minutes. They should still be crispy, so pay attention not to overcook them.
Put chicken back into the skillet and add sauce. Cook for 1 minute, stirring.
Serve immediately with jasmine rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
* Five-spice powder can be found in most grocery stores. It's a mix of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper and fennel seeds.
** If you want to eat this with rice, start heating the cooking water just before prepping the ingredients so that rice and chicken are ready at the same time.
