TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • STIR-FRY:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

Directions

  • 1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash cut side down in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the broth, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, vinegar and pepper flakes until smooth; set aside.
  • 3. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and soy sauce. Place cornstarch in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with cornstarch. In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken in oil in batches until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 4. Stir-fry broccoli and onion for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir sauce mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken; heat through.
  • 5. When squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to separate strands. Serve with stir-fry. Yield: 4 servings.
