Broccoli and Chicken Stir-fry

There's more to broccoli stir-fry than beef and oyster sauce. This Broccoli and Chicken Stir-Fry recipe from the Neely's can attest to that. It's loaded with cancer-fighting antioxidants, Vitamin C, iron, and B vitamins from the broccoli and lean protein from the chicken. Try it for a lighter take on this Chinese takeout favorite.

Broccoli and Chicken Stir-fry

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, sliced into chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons peeled and chopped ginger
4 green onions, sliced
2 cups broccoli florets, blanched

1. Whisk the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl until the sugar and cornstarch are dissolved. Set aside.
2. Heat a wok over medium-high heat and coat with peanut oil. Stir-fry chicken pieces in batches until cooked through. Remove cooked chicken from wok.
3. In the same wok, saute herbs and spices until fragrant. Add chicken and broccoli. Stir until heated through.
4. Pour reserved sauce and stir until sauce is thickened. Serve warm.
