10 minute Chicken and Cherry Tomato Stir-Fry recipe. Serve hot over rice, couscous or noodles.
This chicken and cherry tomato toss is a gardeners dream serving up a fresh and delicious stir-fry dish! When tomato season hits I like to be prepared for recipes because once one it starts…. then it will start to rain tomatoes!
When tomato insanity hits we often have days where we are picking 10 pounds of tomatoes. I make plenty of sauces to last us through winter, but I love to enjoy our cherry tomatoes super fresh for dinner! This Chicken and Cherry Tomato Toss Stir-Fry is totally going to be a Summer time favorite!
The combination of chicken stock, soy sauce and ginger root gives this a great “Asian” tasting meal. I can totally see this being a Chinese dish served over rice. In my case I served it over thick lo mein noodles which was a perfect compliment to the chicken and tomatoes. After dinner I was declaring this delicious so next time you set your eyes on some cherry tomatoes, grab them and make this Stir-Fry!
