Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup sliced fresh carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, curry and red pepper flakes. Stir in broth and soy sauce until smooth; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet or wok coated with cooking spray, stir-fry chicken in 1 teaspoon oil for 5-6 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same pan, stir-fry carrots and garlic in remaining oil for 1 minute. Stir in broccoli; cook 2 minutes longer. Add onions; cook 1-2 minutes longer.
  3. Stir broth mixture and stir into vegetables. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return chicken to the pan; heat through.
