Need a no-fail weeknight meal idea?

Check out this simple yet delicious Chicken Stir-Fry recipe that’ll have dinner on your table in no time.  It has been one of Hip2Save’s most popular recipes since being featured in a previous post years ago.

Chicken stir-fry is such a delicious fragrant meal idea that’s also very adaptable to your family’s taste by using veggies they love. This is also perfect for using up odds and end veggies in the fridge!

I love how quick this meal comes together and how delicious the garlic and ginger flavors are! My kids request this often and it’s something you’ll likely have the ingredients for already.

Tip: Most of the time I’ll use a little sesame oil to brown chicken, and coconut oil is great too!

Weeknight Chicken Stir-Fry

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Cook Time: 20 minutes




  • Step 1:

    Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add chicken, garlic and ginger. Saute 5 to 6 minutes or until chicken is brown.

  • Step 2:

    Add 3/4 cup of the broth, the soy sauce and sugar. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring twice. Add vegetables.

  • Step 3:

    Cover and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and veggies are crisp-tender.

  • Step 4:

    Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/4 cup broth and then pour and stir into chicken mixture. Cook while stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened.

  • Step 5:

    Serve on top of rice, and garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired.

YUM! Such an easy and delicious homemade skillet dinner!

Serve this Chicken Stir-Fry over rice, and it’ll be gone in no time. Taking the time to thicken the sauce at the end is definitely worth it. Enjoy!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
