One of our favorite fast foods is Chinese take out. Take out is expensive. For a family of 7, we usually spend about $30. That would provide enough milk, plus fruits and veggies for a week with some stretching.
Learning to make Chinese food is the frugal alternative. Stir fry is the easy place to start. I use this dish as a way of using up little bits of fresh veggies in the fridge.
Chicken Stir Fry
Adapted from Make it Paleo
1 lb. chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
Toasted sesame oil
1 T minced ginger
1 T minced garlic
Chopped up vegetables of choice
1. Heat wok. When wok is hot, add the sesame oil, garlic, and ginger and cook for about a minute to flavor the sesame oil.
2. Add the chicken, and cook until almost cooked through. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside on a platter.
3. Put in the vegetables, cooking the thicker ones first. Add the chicken back in.
4. Pour in a little soy sauce, and thoroughly mix the chicken and vegetables in the sauce.
5. Remove from heat when finished and serve over rice.
