Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup canned sliced water chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup canned bamboo shoots
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Remove 3/4 cup of marinade; cover and refrigerate. Add chicken to remaining marinade in bowl; toss to coat. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and reserved marinade until smooth; set aside.
  3. In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; stir-fry until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. Stir-fry broccoli in remaining oil, 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 2 minutes longer. Add the water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and onions; cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, 1-2 minutes longer.
  4. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2 minutes. Add chicken; heat through. Serve with rice.
