Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs about 1½ lbs cut into 1/2″ strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 small or 2 large zucchini sliced into rounds, about 1/3-inch thick, about 4 cups worth
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced for topping
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for topping


  • Whisk together the oyster sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, warm the oil over med-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring or tossing frequently, until it is cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the zucchini to the empty skillet. Cook, stirring or tossing frequently until the zucchini begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, while tossing constantly, for an additional minute until fragrant.
  • Add water to the pan and use a wooden spoon or metal spatula to scrape up all the browned bits. Pour in the soy sauce mixture and return the chicken to the pan.
  • Cook, while stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve over rice if desired.
