Add chicken; stir-fry about 2 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Add broccoli and onions; stir-fry about 1 minute or until broccoli is heated through.

Expert Tips

  • For 9 grams of fat and 250 calories per serving, decrease the oil to 1 tablespoon and use a nonstick wok or skillet.
  • Using minced or ground gingerroot from the jar makes for one less ingredient to chop. Look for it in the produce section of your grocery store.
  • Wear rubber gloves when working with chilies to prevent the burning oils from irritating your skin or eyes. If you prefer a milder taste, cut the chili in half and remove the membranes and seeds before slicing.
