1boneless, skinless chicken breast (8 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch long slices
1tablespoonarrowroot starch(or cornstarch)
2teaspoonssodium-reduced soy sauce
1teaspoonSwerve sugar replacement (Stevia or equivalent)
1largegarlic clove, finely chopped
1tablespoonfreshly chopped gingeroot
1teaspooncanola or safflower oil
1zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
4ounces(1/2 standard package) white mushrooms, thinly sliced
1tablespoonreduced-sodium chicken broth, or water
1tablespoonchopped cilantro, optional
Place the chicken in a small deep bowl and sprinkle with arrowroot powder. Thoroughly coat the chicken either by hand or with a spoon and set aside.
In another small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sugar replacement, garlic and ginger.
Spray and heat a medium sized skillet, or wok, then add the canola oil. Add the chicken and cook, stir frying, for about 2 minutes or until all raw color has disappeared.
Remove chicken to a plate and stir in the zucchini. Stir fry, turning the zucchini over medium high heat for 2 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and stir fry one minute.
Add 1 tablespoon broth or water, cover and cook just until the zucchini is almost crispy tender, about 1 minute.
Stir in the soy sauce mixture, chicken and sesame oil. Stir fry for 1 minute or until chicken is totally cooked, hot and firm.
Stir in the cilantro, if using. Remove from heat and serve.
One tip is to freeze the chicken breast for 10 to 15 minutes. You'll still be able to slice through easily and because it's firmer, will be really easy to slice.Chop the garlic and ginger together to save a step.A chopped green onion can also be added for additional flavor.A wok is a really nice tool to have and works great with this. I used to have several and over the years of moving have disposed of every single one! Rest easy as I made this delightful stir fry in a plain non-stick 10-inch skillet. Any frying pan will do just as well.I used arrowroot starch to coat the chicken and ultimately thicken the sauce a little. Traditional cornstarch used in the same proportions will work just as well.Read and gather all the ingredients before starting the recipe. The cooking will be much smoother that way.Serving size: 1 generous cup4*SmartPoints (Green plan)2*SmartPoints (Blue plan)2*SmartPoints (Purple plan)6*PointsPlus (Old plan)
