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!

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!

    I made the ham and bean soup that you posted and it was delicious!

    This looks delicious Lina. Most of the ingredients I have on hand. I store fresh ginger in a small jar in the fridge covered with leftover wine. Keeps it fresh for a long time. I also buy Trader Joe’s minced garlic in individual cubes in their freezer section. So handy for recipes!

    • Laurie

    I made your Swiss cheese and bacon dip for my family’s holiday get together. Everyone loved it.

    • Lina D

    Skillet dinners definitely my go to!

    • Lina D

    I make a similar stir fry. I use carrots as well and Orange Marmalade. After growing the chicken I take out of the pan and then sauté the veggies and them mixed the sot sauce, Orange Marmalade and corn starch in a bowl. After the veggies have soften I add the chicken and sauce and let it thicken. One of my families Favorites!!! I also add any veggie I have that I want to use up. Enjoy!

    • Patty

    Perfect! I had been trying to figure out what to cook tomorrow night, and was hoping not to have to run to the grocery store. I have all of the necessary ingredients on hand, so I’ll be serving this tomorrow night. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Lina D

      Yay! Enjoy Tina 👍

  8. Tammy

    I have made this before. It is delicious.

    Can you substitute veggie broth for chicken broth and still have this turn out ok?

    • Lina D

      Yes, I’m sure that’ll be good!
