  • 4 chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 medium squash, peeled and sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red chili, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Fresh coriander, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a large bowl, toss the sliced chicken breast with the flour until evenly coated. Set aside.
  2. Place the wok over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, add the minced garlic, chopped chili (if using), and grated ginger. Stir-fry for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the floured chicken strips to the wok. Stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside.
  4. In the same wok, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the squash matchsticks and stir-fry for about 4-5 minutes until tender but still slightly crisp.
  5. Return the cooked chicken to the wok with the squash. Add the soy sauce, honey, and lime juice. Stir well to coat all the ingredients in the sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through.
  6. Divide the stir-fry among four plates. Garnish with fresh chopped coriander. Serve immediately with steamed rice or noodles, if desired.

This Chicken and Squash Stir-Fry is a delightful, healthy meal that brings the family together with its bright flavors and fresh ingredients. Enjoy this nutritious dish and the time spent cooking and eating with loved ones.
