Make chicken stir-fry for a quick, easy dinner. For best results, cook chicken stir-fry in a wok, but it's possible to cook in a large frying pan. A wok is a pan with high sides and a rounded bottom. A long-handled spoon is usually used with a wok. Constant stirring is required to prevent burning. Any type of oil can be used for cooking, but olive oil is the healthiest. Peanut oil is also commonly used.
