Stir-Fry of Chicken and Salad Bar Fixings

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 C chicken broth
  • 4 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4-6 C sliced fresh vegetables (see notes, below)

1. Cut the chicken into strips about 1 1/2" x 1/2".
2. In a measuring cup, stir together the broth, soy sauce, cornstarch and sugar; set aside.
3. Place a heavy, 10" nonstick skillet over high heat for 1 minute. Add the oil and swirl the pan to coat it evenly. Add the chicken and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
4. Push the chicken to the side of the skillet and add the ginger, garlic and vegetables. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the broth mixture. Cover the pan and cook, stirring every 30 seconds, for 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

Robyn's notes: I used broccoli, cauliflower, sliced red onion, diced red pepper, sliced mushrooms, chopped celery, sliced carrot strips.  Served over sticky rice for me and Basmati/Wild rice for him (he prefers enriched rice over white rice always, while I'm not able to eat other than white rice). It was really quick to cook and quite good.
