Avocado Chicken Stir-Fry


I decided to add avocado to my stir-fry after trying a similar dish at a local Chinese restaurant. The avocado tastes so good with snow peas and chicken! Be sure to use unripened avocados so they don't turn to mush during the cooking process. Serve over rice.

  • ½ cup chicken broth

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces

  • 2 cups snow peas

  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, stems discarded, caps thinly sliced

  • 4 bunches green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 large ripe but firm avocados - peeled, pitted, and cut into large chunks


  1. Stir broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic together in a bowl until cornstarch dissolves; set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken and stir-fry until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate.

  3. Add snow peas to the wok and stir-fry until bright green and still crisp, about 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and green onions; cook, tossing occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and have released their juices, about 5 minutes. Drain if necessary. Reduce the heat to medium.

  4. Return chicken to the wok and stir briefly to combine with vegetables. Stir broth mixture to recombine; pour into the wok. Stir in avocados, then simmer until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Gently stir ingredients to coat in sauce and serve immediately.
