Veggie Chicken Stir-Fry
To highlight autumn vegetables, our Test Kitchen home economists came up with this seasonal stir-fry. Apple juice is a nice addition to the teriyaki sauce.
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 20 min.
- 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 medium carrots, julienned
- 2 medium parsnips, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth

- 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
- 3/4 cup frozen pearl onions
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup cold water

- In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry the chicken, garlic and ginger in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken and keep warm. Drain excess oil from skillet; add the carrots, parsnips, broth, apple juice and teriyaki sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add broccoli and onions. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are almost crisp-tender.
