Chicken Stir-Fry With Broccoli and Tomatoes

Introduction

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 teaspoons canola oil or other vegetable oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 pound boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    3 cups broccoli florets
    1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    4 firm-ripe plum tomatoes, quartered lengthwise

Directions

1. Heat oil and salt in a 12-inch nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. When oil is very hot, add chicken breast and stir-fry 3 minutes. Add soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and stir well.

2. Add broccoli, then slowly add 1/2 cup chicken broth. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until broccoli is just tender.

3. Meanwhile, mix cornstarch into remaining 1/2 cup broth until dissolved. Stir tomatoes and cornstarch mixture into skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 2 minutes or until sauce thickens and clears. Serve hot.


You can substitute lean slices of beef or pork loin for the chicken, and red or yellow bell peppers for the tomato, if you like. If you use bell peppers, add them to the skillet at the same time as the broccoli. Serve this dish with brown rice or noodles.

"I added some red pepper flakes and more garlic. Also added snow pea pods, which gave it more crunch. I put it over a small amount of rice noodles. Next time I make it, I'll try it over brown rice (fewer calories)."

    Not too bad, but it was a little bland. I would add more ginger, garlic, and hot pepper flakes if I make it again. - 2/23/08

    This was absolutely delicious!! I made some modifications because I didn't have broccoli (used a bag of frozen stir-fry veggie mix); also wanted to add a bit more flavor. Didn't add the tomatoes. Added more ginger powder and garlic. Also sauteed onions with the garlic and chicken first. YUM!! - 1/24/08

  • Made this recipe yesterday. Was delicious. I did add a few additional ingredients to this.
    Added 1 c slice mushrooms, 1/2 a red pepper, some red pepper flakes, and was really good.

  • I already had thin chicken breasts marinating in italian dressing so I used this and cooked without the oil. Also used red peppers instead of tomatoes. Came out a little more watery then I wanted but my daughter loved dipping the broccoli in the extra sauce. Wife asked if it was soup...whatever! - 5/28/14

  • The nutritional information for this recipe is not correct. I went in to do a make-over with more vegetables. The recipe that the nutritional info is based on does not have oil and only uses 8 oz of chicken. - 5/8/13
