Fiery Chicken and Veggies

Dish: Quick & Easy
Dish Type: Poultry
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

  • 28 ounces - chicken broth
  • 1 cup - long grain rice
  • 1 pound - boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon - vegetable or olive oil
  • 16 ounce - bag frozen vegetable mix, such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, bell peppers etc
  • 2 teaspoons - minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon - soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons - minced ginger (you can buy this in a jar)
  • 1 pinch - red pepper flakes or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons - cornstarch



1.         Combine 1 cup of the broth (reserving the rest) and 1 cup water in a covered medium size saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the rice, stir, and reduce the hat to low. Cover the pan and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
2.         Meanwhile, if the chicken is frozen, run it under to remove the packaging. Microwave the chicken, uncovered, on high power for 3 minutes to partially defrost.
3.         While the chicken defrosts, heat the oil over medium heat in an extra deep 12 inch skillet. Add the frozen broccoli mixture and stir occasionally.
4.         Meanwhile, cut the chicken (fresh or partially defrosted) into bite size pieces, adding them to the skillet as you cut. Cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is no longer pink in center, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan. Stir well. Add the soy sauce, ginger, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Stir well and cook to blend the flavors, 2 minutes.

5.         Combine the cornstarch and remaining ¾ cup chicken broth in a small container the has a lid. Cover and shake until the lumps dissolve. Drizzle mixture over the chicken. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside until the rice is done. Serve the chicken mixture over a bed of rice.


  You can use any vegetable mix you like.  so don't think you have to follow the list I added here.  this very easy and very tasty you can make it with any rice you like or feel comfortable making such as minute or instant rice too any will work fine.
