Stir-Fry Sunday Supper
Stir-fry marinated chicken with shiitake mushroooms, carrots, and celery, then serve over brown rice to make a heart-healthy meal.
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- 4 teaspoons peanut oil
- 1 pound shiitake or portobello mushrooms, stems discarded, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 cups coarsely grated carrot
- 2 celery stalks, sliced
- 4 cups cooked brown rice
- Sliced scallion, for garnish
1. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut in half and pound slightly to thin. Cut crosswise into thin strips (about 1/4-inch thick).
2. Whisk together garlic, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons cornstarch and the ginger in a large bowl, for marinade. Add chicken, turning to coat, cover and chill 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Whisk together juice and remaining 2 teaspoons cornstarch in a small bowl until dissolved.
4. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a heavy skillet over high heat, until hot but not smoking. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and add to skillet; saute, turning occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil, the mushrooms, carrot, and celery to same skillet; saute over moderately high heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Return chicken to skillet; add juice-cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Stir until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
5. Serve over rice and garnish with scallion, if desired. Makes 8 servings.
