About chicken stir-fry meat

Most stir-fry dishes come with a protein, and one of the most popular options is chicken. Boneless, skinless chicken breast works best for this type of dish, but you can also use boneless skinless chicken thighs. The breasts are leaner, while the dark-meat thighs are juicier and hard to overcook. Either way, chicken stir-fry is packed full of lean protein and vegetables, all cooked using minimal amounts of oil.

You can easily prepare a quick, simple, and healthy dish with this type of meat. When making your own chicken stir-fry, you need three things: chicken, vegetables, and a sauce. This customizable dish has endless options as you can use just about any vegetable and complementary sauce.

FAQs About Chicken Stir-Fry Meat

To firm up the chicken, so it slices better, freeze the thawed meat for about 20 to 30 minutes. Avoid freezing it completely, as this can cause damage to your knife. An even better option is to cut the frozen chicken before it completely thaws.

One of the tricks that Chinese restaurants use to produce smooth and tender chicken is by velveting it. This process involves coating the chicken in a mixture of baking soda, sesame oil, cornstarch, rice vinegar, and soy sauce, all of which tenderize the meat by breaking down its fibers. It allows the chicken's texture to be softer internally, almost giving it a velvet feel. Whisk all these ingredients together, and add the chicken until it's evenly coated.  

After cooking the chicken, you can freeze the meat to use later. Let it cool completely and transfer it to a freezer-safe plastic bag or airtight plastic container. It will keep for up to three months this way. To thaw, defrost the chicken in the refrigerator the night before you plan to use it.

If you're looking to store a leftover chicken stir-fry dish, put the food in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to five days. It's best not to freeze leftover chicken stir-fry with vegetables since the vegetables can have a mushy texture when thawed.
