Here is another stupid easy, oh-so-delicious weeknight dinner that uses rotisserie chicken and limited ingredients — an Easy Sesame Chicken and Snow Pea Stir Fry.
This dinner comes together so effortlessly and the end result is absolutely delicious — what a win. Making this perfect for those busy days when you really do not feel like doing much work in the kitchen or what want to be creative with items you have on hand but still want a wholesome dinner to put on the table for yourself or your family. And you can easily do that by quickly making this stir fry then serving as-is or alongside some brown rice or cauliflower rice if preferred!
In this stir fry recipe, I used snow peas as the green, but you can really use whatever you have on hand. Try sautéing up bell peppers and onions, green beans, or even asparagus would be delicious!! Regardless, I hope this Easy Sesame Chicken and Snow Pea Stir Fry serves as a reminder to you that getting food on the table does not have to be a huge chore…and that keeping it simple can still result in a delicious dinner!

Easy Sesame Chicken and Snow Pea Stir Fry
- 2 tbsp avocado oil
- ½ medium-sized white onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 9 oz package of snow peas
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp white pepper or black pepper
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional for heat
- 3 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- ½ tsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes.
- Add snow peas, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper and continue to cook, stirring, until the snow peas are slightly softened, about 3 more minutes. Add coconut aminos, sesame oil, fish sauce, rice vinegar and bring to a simmer so that the sauce reduces a bit, 2-3 minutes.
- Stir in shredded chicken and the toasted sesame seeds and toss to coat the chicken evenly and just heat the chicken through, about 2 more minutes.
- Serve and enjoy!

Turned out delicious! I had broccoli, so I used that instead of snap peas and added mushrooms. Sauce is tasty!

I love this for a night when we don’t have much time without sacrificing any flavor! Perfect served over rice or cauliflower rice!

Hi, Alex! SOOO excited to make this during my upcoming Whole30! Could I make this recipe in a dutch oven instead of a skillet? Thank you!!

Just made this for the second time!! Absolutely delicious both times, comes together so easily, and an actually super fast weeknight dinner. The second time I made it I doubled the sauce, just because I liked it so much and wanted extra!
I’m a sucker for a good rotisserie chicken makeover recipe, and I got to use my white pepper for something other than Cajun food for once! Wins all around 🙂

LOVED the flavor. I boiled chicken thighs and shredded them because that’s what I had and I served it with rice. EXCELLENT. It’s definitely spicy so if you don’t like spice then use less or no crushed red pepper.

Really easy and oh so good!!! 4 c. of chicken was a lot and I thought it needed more vegetables so I added chopped asparagus to 8 oz. of sugar snap peas, doubled the sauce and served the whole thing over cauliflower rice. We all loved it and just finished the leftovers for lunch!

So glad you enjoyed it!! love the asparagus add in!

That came together so quickly! Only had string beans, but it was super tasty and of course topped it off with sriracha sauce.

This recipe was 1) so dang tasty and 2) so quick to put together. I used string beans and had to add some cauliflower rice to get a good ratio of vegetables: chicken. The dish was even better the second day!
