Nutritional Facts

1 cup chicken mixture with 1 cup squash equals 501 calories, 20 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 128 mg cholesterol, 1,308 mg sodium, 51 g carbohydrate, 6 g fiber, 30 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place squash cut side down in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-12 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 cornstarch 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: 2 servings.
