It was the main cooking method of both the Northern and Southern dynasties and became a normal everyday meal amongst the common people. Stir frying has been around for many years but the term “stir fry” was first used and introduced to America in 1945. It was mentioned in a cookbook by Buwei Yang Chao titled How to Cook and Eat in Chinese. The author’s husband, an American linguist, literally invented the term. Soon after, the very old cooking technique as well as the sauce that completes it became mainstream and is now used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. The history is lengthy but stir frying is definitely here to stay.

Ideas to Use – Chicken Stir Fry Sauce with veggies

There is a correct way to use chicken stir fry sauce. First, stir fry your chicken as well as your vegetables after cutting both into bite sized pieces. When they are almost done, add some of the sauce, bring to a boil and cook until the sauce thickens. It should resemble a loose glaze when done and coat everything evenly. Add more sauce as needed but make sure not to heavily coat the meat and veggies. The best way to stir fry is in a wok. Doing so boosts authenticity and provides a greater usable cooking surface. In addition to stir frying, the sauce makes a delicious glaze for roasted chicken, beef and various other proteins. The use of corn starch and sugar thickens the sauce just enough to provide a thin coating of pronounced Asian flavors that will wake up the taste buds. Along with pairing with vegetables and proteins, consider tossing noodles in the sauce to make chow mein. All the signature elements are there.
