Zesty Italian Chicken Stir Fry is an incredibly delicious one pan dinner with fresh vegetables, diced chicken, and Italian dressing!
One of my favorite dinners to make is stir fry. You can add in as many vegetables as desired and play with the varieties. Since my kids love broccoli and carrots, I almost always add those in. Typically I make a Chinese Chicken Stir Fry but last week, since I had some Italian dressing to use up from a previous meal, I decided to use that in place of soy sauce. Plus, it was a great way to lower the sodium that soy sauce tends to have.

The kids really enjoyed this meal and my hubby and I said we may enjoy it even more than the Chinese version I make.
Plus, being a one pan meal, clean up was a breeze and we even had enough leftovers to enjoy for lunch the next day! Feel free to add more of your favorite veggies and decrease/omit veggies you aren’t a fan of!
Zesty Italian Chicken Stir Fry is a light tasting, simple dinner that was full of colorful veggies and tender chicken.
I served this over rice, but you could enjoy it by itself, over pasta, etc.
