Caleb and Maxwell do get excited when we get out our Inspiralizer to make dinner. They think it is the coolest kitchen tool…and it is! They love watching us turn vegetables into noodles! It’s like we have our own magic show in our kitchen..ha!

Easy Chicken Zucchini Noodle Stir Fry
- Prep Time
- 15 minutes
- Cook Time
- 15 minutes
- Total Time
- 30 minutes
For the Sauce:
- 1/3 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
- 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce or Tamari sauce
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce more or less, depending on how spicy you want it
For the Stir Fry:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
- 8 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 red bell pepper cut into strips
- 1 carrot cut into strips
- 1/2 red onion cut into strips
- 1 cup snap peas
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 2 zucchini spiralized into noodles
In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil, ginger, and Sriracha sauce. Set aside.
Place a large sauté pan or wok over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and allow it to get hot, this will take about a minute. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
Heat the pan back up and add the other tablespoon of olive oil. Add the peppers, carrot, red onion, snap peas, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables are tender, but still crisp, about 4 minutes. Add the sauce to the pan and cook until the sauce thickens up, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken to the pan and stir to combine. Gently stir in the zucchini noodles. Cook for 1 minute, making sure the noodles are well coated with the sauce.
Note-if you want to make the stir fry vegetarian or vegan, you can leave out the chicken. For gluten free, make sure you use Tamari sauce.
