Avocado Chicken Stir-Fry

Rated as 4.37 out of 5 Stars

"I created this recipe after trying a similar dish at a local Chinese restaurant. The avocado tastes SO good with snow peas and chicken. Be sure you use unripened avocados so they don't turn to mush during the cooking process! Serve over rice."

  1. In a bowl, stir together the chicken broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic until the cornstarch is smooth, and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering, and cook and stir the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Remove from the wok and set aside. Place the snow peas into the hot wok, and cook and stir until bright green and still crisp, about 3 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and green onions, and toss with the snow peas in the hot oil until the mushrooms are tender and have given up their juice, about 5 minutes. Pour off excess juices, if any.
  3. Return the chicken to the wok, and stir briefly over medium heat to combine with the cooked vegetables. Stir the reserved sauce ingredients to recombine, if needed, and add to the wok. Gently stir in the avocado, and let the mixture bubble until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Stir gently to coat everything in sauce, and serve.

Unreal it's so good. Only problem my wife and I have is eating too much at once.

This is GREAT as is, but I will double the veggies next time because we don't eat rice. Fantastic recipe!

I love it! The flavor was great, and I would have never thought to add avocados to a stir fry! Next time I would customize it with adding some carrots for more crunch and color. It was really gr...

This stir-fry is unique and delicious! The avocado has a mild, earthy flavor that complements the chicken well. If you like heat, try a dash of crushed red pepper.

This is a fabulous recipe and a great one even for kids. My whole family really likes this healthy meal and it will now become a regular in our rotation of meals. The avocado makes it!
