SUMMER HOT RECIPE WAGON: Stir – Fried Chicken with Almonds

Serve this stir-fry with hot egg noodles tossed with a dash of soy sauce and Oriental sesame oil.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 cloves garlic

8 ounces green beans

4 large carrots

1 ½ cups canned reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided

2 tablespoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon Oriental sesame oil

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

½ cup blanched whole almonds

Cut

chicken into ½ -inch-wide strips.  Finely chop garlic.  Cut green beans into 2 -inch lengths. Peel carrots and slice them diagonally.

In

a cup, combine ¼ cup broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, and sesame oil, set aside.  In a wok or skillet, heat oil using high heat.  Add almonds and saute until lightly browned. 1 to 2 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer the almonds to a medium size bowl, put aside.

Add

the chicken strips to the wok, stir fry until browned.  Using a slotted spoon, include the chicken to the almonds.

Reduce

the heat to moderate. Add the chopped garlic to the wok and stir-fry 10 seconds. Stir in the green beans, carrots, and remaining 1 cup chicken broth.  Cover the pan and cook the vegetables until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

Stir

the cornstarch mixture and add it to the vegetables, cook until the sauce is thickened and bubbly, about 1 minute.  Stir in the chicken and almonds.  Cook until just heated through.  Pack in a heated meal tote for a hot lunch on the go.
