This Cilantro Chicken Stir Fry is a quick and easy dinner recipe that is filled with fresh veggies, loads of cilantro and super tender chicken.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again.
I’m in love with cilantro.
I actually think I have a problem. Every time I go to the grocery store I buy another bunch of cilantro. I’ll end up with 4 or 5 bunches of cilantro in my fridge because I have an irrational fear that one day I’ll reach in my fridge to get cilantro and I’ll be out of it.
I do the same thing with green onions.
If you’re not regularly garnishing with fresh herbs or green onions, you’re completely missing out.
It can turn a good dish into a WOW-worthy dish.
Like this chicken stir fry for instance.
There are a lot of good things going on in this stir fry.
- Tender chicken thighs
- Crisp red bell peppers
- Honey roasted peanuts
- An amazing sauce
But what really takes this stir fry over the top… cilantro.
The pop of color, the burst of fragrance.
It’s fresh, inviting, delicious.
I served this over a bed of rice with wedges of lime to squeeze over the top.
PRO TIP: Wait till just before serving to stir in the cilantro. It’s delicate and will wilt under the heat of the stir fry, so stir it in just before serving and enjoy!
The kids gave it two thumbs up!
I love how quickly it all comes together… plus I was able to use one of the 5 bunches of cilantro in my fridge. 🙂
