Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Asian Chicken with Brussel Sprouts

1 cup brown rice, uncooked, long-grain
1/4 c. Egg Beaters
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 pound chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, thinly sliced (2 large)
2 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 pound Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 red chili pepper, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts

Recipe Directions for Spicy Asian Chicken with Brussel Sprouts

  1. Cook the rice.

  2. Meanwhile, put Egg Beaters in a large bowl. Place the cornstarch in another large bowl. Add the chicken to the egg and toss to coat. A few pieces at a time, lift the chicken out of the egg and coat in the cornstarch, tapping off the excess; transfer to a plate.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoons of the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. In 2 batches, cook the chicken, turning occasionally, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes (add more oil for the second batch, if necessary); transfer to a plate.

  4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts, ginger, and garlic and cook, tossing occasionally, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and cup water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the Brussels sprouts are crisp-tender and the liquid begins to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  5. Return the chicken to the skillet, along with the chili, and cook, tossing, until heated through, about 1 minute. Add the sesame oil and scallions. Serve over the rice and sprinkle with the peanuts.
