Recipe Overview

I love this chicken mince stir-fry (or ground chicken stir-fry for my North American readers) because it’s super easy and has only a few ingredients. 

This stir-fry features ground chicken mince, carrots and bell peppers cooked with aromatics, oyster sauce and a little chilli. It’s a little spicy, a little sweet with plenty of savoury goodness in every bite. 

The recipe takes about 20 minutes to make (could be even quicker with a little prep ahead of time) and can be served in a variety of ways:

  • On top of fluffy white rice, brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice.
  • Tossed through your favourite noodles like these Hibachi noodles.
  • In a delicious wrap with crunchy vegetables.
  • Leftovers can be turned into a delicious ramen soup or stir-fried rice dish.
  • With a side of stir-fried Asian greens or other vegetables.

This recipe is low-calorie, low-carb and can be made gluten-free with the right oyster sauce brand.

Ingredients

Here is what you need to make this super simple chicken mince stir-fry:

  • Ground chicken – in Australia, it’s pretty easy to get chicken ground-up chicken mince from most supermarkets; you can also ask your butcher or make your own by processing a combination of chicken thighs and some breast meat. This recipe will work equally well with ground turkey, beef or pork. 
  • Aromatics – garlic and onion are the basic aromatics for this recipe, you can throw in some ginger if you like.
  • Vegetables – this is up to you, I am using simple carrot and bell pepper (capsicum) as that’s what I had on hand and what I often have in the fridge. You can throw in some diced broccoli, green beans, zucchini, snow peas, baby corn etc.
  • Condiments – oyster sauce is what gives this dish the main flavour, it’s salty and slightly sweet, plus a little chilli paste (or sauce) for some heat. For those interested, this is my absolute favourite brand of Oyster sauce (they also make the best fish sauce in my opinion).
  • Optional garnishes: sesame seeds and green onions (scallions) or chives.

What To Serve With Chicken Mince Stir-Fry

I love this dish served one of three ways:

  • Over fluffy rice – super simple and delicious; quinoa works well too.
  • With noodles – Asian egg noodles or rice noodles tossed through this chicken stir-fry are very delicious; I will often stir through some garlic chilli oil as well.
  • For a quick lunch hack, I will often pull out a small portion of this chicken from the freezer and defrost it in a microwave to pimp up some 2-minutes ramen noodles.
  • For a low-carb/grain-free version, serve with some cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.

    So yummy! I didn’t have oyster sauce so I used a little Hoisin in its place. It was very good!

    What I love best about this recipe is the simplicity and rich flavors. I usually make a similar recipe with ground pork. I have to give it a try with chicken. Thanks for the inspiration and I’m looking forward to making it.
