Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry

This recipe comes from Good Bite Weeknight Meals Delicious Made Easy.  It is a cookbook put together by various food bloggers. 

It was a really quick dinner to throw together and you can vary it by using different vegetables.  You could also make it even quicker by using chicken tenderloins.

Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry
By Lori Lange (

1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbs. low sodium soy sauce
1 tbs cornstarch
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3 tbs canola oil, divided
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-in. pieces
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 large red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup snow peas
1/4 cup unsalted cashews (I omitted these)
1/4 cup sliced scallions
Hot cooked rice

Place the chicken broth, soy sauce, cornstarch and ginger in a small bowl and stir until combined.  Set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and garlic and stir-fry until the chicken turns white, about 3 minutes.  Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the bell pepper, snow peas, cashews and scallions and stir fry for 1 minute.

Reduce the heat to medium, add the chicken-broth mixture, and bring to a boil, stirring.  Boil until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute.  Serve immediately with the hot cooked rice.
