Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t eat large portions of your favorite foods. Hungry Girl’s new book “The Hungry Girl Diet” has recipes that let you keep eating your favorites like the Special Stir-Fry below.


  • 1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 5 ounces raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt-free seasoning (like the ones by Mrs. Dash)
  • 2 tablespoons sauce, dressing, or marinade with 25 calories or less per 1-tablespoon serving (like the ones by Lawry’s)
  • Cooking Directions

    Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add veggies, and drizzle with oil. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Add chicken, and sprinkle with seasoning. Cook and stir until veggies are soft and chicken is cooked through, about 4 more minutes. Add sauce, dressing, or marinade, and stir well.

    Time-Saving Alternative: Use 1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets and 2 cups frozen stir-fry veggies!

    Another Time-Saving Alternative: Use 4 ounces precooked chicken breast, and add with the sauce, dressing, or marinade!
