Number of Servings: 4


    16 ounces boneless chicken breast, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
    2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil
    1 large onion, cut in half and sliced lengthwise into half moons (about 1 cup)

    2 medium celery ribs, sliced on angle (about 1 cup)
    3 cloves garlic, sliced
    1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger or 1/2 teaspoon dry
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 tablespoon reduced-sugar apricot preserves
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    2 tablespoons bourbon
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    2 cups cooked brown rice
    4 green onions, greens and whites sliced on angle


Add the oil to a large skillet that has been preheated to medium.
