How long will Stir Fry Chicken and Veggies last for?

With proper sealing and storage, you can properly store the cooked main dish in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. The best containers will be airtight, especially when you want to store moisture from the rice so it reheats nicely. We recommend our dual compartment meal prep container.

Can Stir Fry Chicken and Veggies be frozen?

Yes, you can freeze this meal prep recipe. The chicken will retain its flavor up to two months and the Mango Cauliflower Rice will last just as long. Make sure to store the rice as soon after cooking as possible so that later it will become moist as you reheat it for lunch or dinner.

How do you make Stir Fry Chicken and Veggies?

This meal prep recipe is about as easy as they come and done in 35 minutes! Let’s get started with the Stir Fry Chicken.

Prepare all the ingredients by cutting chicken and asparagus into bite-sized pieces, bell pepper into slices, and the rest of the specific ingredients. Then stir fry the chicken in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the chicken cooks, combine the cauliflower rice ingredients and mango in a medium bowl. 

As the chicken is cooking and nearly done, add the rest of the stir fry ingredients – bell pepper, asparagus, and prepared simmer sauce. Stir fry altogether until well coated. Let the batch of goodness simmer for approximately 3-5 mins or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is fully cooked.

The last step is to top the stir fry with cashews. That’s it! Easy, yummy stir fry that’s gluten-free, Paleo, and Whole 30 compliant.

Other tips for making Stir Fry Chicken and Veggies:

  • Always judge a mango’s ripeness by feel. A ripe mango’s color is not not the best indicator of how ripe the mango is, but a ripe mango will give slightly when you squeeze them. Go by feel.

  • If possible, choose organic chicken and red peppers and rice for optimal health benefits. 

  • Add mango toward the end of the rice cook time because mango can get mushy when it is overcooked.
