Chicken and Broccoli

This recipe is from Betty Crocker and it is very simple and helps satisfy a Chinese food craving!


2 teaspoons canola oil                                           
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces                                           
1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger root  
2 cups fresh broccoli florets                                   
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)                                     
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon cornstarch                                                                                           Notice the lack of veggies on Fly Boy's plate!
1 teaspoon sugar
2 medium green onions, sliced ( I omitted)
3 cups hot cooked  rice 

Brown chicken and ginger root in the canola oil. Add half of a cup of the broth and the broccoli and cook until chicken is done. In a separate bowl mix together the rest of the broth, red pepper, soy sauce, vinegar ,cornstarch and sugar. Add this mixture to the chicken and broccoli and stir until thick. Add green onions with the sauce, if desired. Serve with hot rice.
