Skinny Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Pinterest
Print Friendly

Sounds pretty basic but this Asian style stir-fry tastes amazingly delicious!  I can’t wait for you to try it. The ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes add a little kick.  Each serving has 9 grams of fiber since this dish is loaded with broccoli, broccoli slaw and a variety of other vegetables. No noodles needed. The broccoli slaw mimics the texture of noodles. In fact, no rice needed either. One huge 2 cup serving has 271 calories, 7 grams of fat and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

Cooking spray, I like using olive oil spray

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces (boneless, skinless)

Juice of 1 lemon

Cooking spray, I like using olive oil spray

2 teaspoons olive oil

6 cups broccoli, cut into florets, I used a (12 oz) bag

1 (12oz) bag broccoli slaw, see shopping tips

1 cup snap peas or Chinese pea pods, sliced

1 cup red bell pepper, chopped

1 cup scallions, sliced

3 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons ginger (from a jar), see shopping tips

2 tablespoons fresh garlic, chopped

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce

3 tablespoons brown sugar

¼ cup rice vinegar, see shopping tip


Instructions

1. Coat a large nonstick pan or wok with cooking spray.  Add 1 teaspoon oil.  Add chicken and squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the top. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until chicken is completely cooked, about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and add to a plate.  Set aside.

2. Coat the same nonstick pan with more cooking spray.  Heat 2 teaspoons oil in pan.  Add all the veggies and water.  Stir-fry for about 3 minutes until broccoli softens.  Stir in ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Continue to cook and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add back chicken, add soy sauce, brown sugar and vinegar. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes.

Makes 4 large servings, each serving ~2 cups

    You have a super fun link party each week Sarah. Thanks for hosting!

  4. A H Says:

    I have all the ingredients except rice vinegar, can I make this without it?? Sounds delish!

  5. admin Says:

    If you have any other white vinegar such as cider vinegar or white wine vinegar it would probably taste better than none at all. Or, you could use lemon juice.
    That said, if you don’t have any of these, use water to replace the vinegar. Enjoy!

    I just had leftovers of something like this for lunch. Not as elaborate but very similar. Leftover sauteed broccoli slaw, leftover cooked julienne carrots, leftover chicken breast that had been marinated in lemon. The leftovers I sauteed a bit more in EVOO, added chicken, covered, and let heat.

  7. admin Says:

    Great minds think alike Rosemary. A dish like this is perfect to make with leftovers on hand. Yours sounds yummy!

  12. Kathryn Says:

    I was wondering what you could substitute for the broccoli slaw (I am in AUS and cannot find it)- would regular cabbage based coleslaw work or zoodles? What is your recommendation?

  13. admin Says:

    Kathryn either cabbage (coleslaw) or zoodles would be just as good. I hope you enjoy this!

    This looks great Nancy. I’ve been using bagged broccoli slaw for tons of things lately, it’s quickly becoming one of my go to ingredients, especially in my Asian recipes. Thanks for posting this.

  15. admin Says:

    It is such a great find Christine. I love it too. It’s also terrific to use instead of shredded cabbage in coleslaw.
