Recipe Ingredients for Fiery Chicken with Vegetables

1 can fat-free chicken broth
1 c. long-grain rice
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T. vegetable oil
16 oz. frozen stir fry vegetables
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 T. soy sauce
2 T. finely minced ginger
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 T. cornstarch

Recipe Directions for Fiery Chicken with Vegetables

  1. Combine 1 c. of the broth (reserving the rest) and 1 c. water in a covered medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the rice, stire, and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, if the chicken is frozen, run it under hot water to remove the packaging. Microwave the chicken, uncovered, on high power for 3 minutes to partially defrost.

  3. While the chicken defrosts, heat the oil over medium heat in an extra-deep 12-inch skillet. Add the frozen broccoli mixture and stir occasionally.

  4. Meanwhile, cut the chicken into bite-size pieces, adding them to the skillet as you can. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan. Stir well. Add the soy sauce, ginger, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Stir well and cook to blend the flavors, 2 minutes.

  5. Combine the cornstarch and remaining 3/4 c. chicken broth in a small container that has a lid. Cover and shake until the lumps dissolve. Drizzle the mixture over the chicken. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and set it aside until the rice is done. Serve the chicken mixture over a bed of hot rice.
