Tonight's Dinner -
Chicken and Broccoli Stirfry over Brown Jasmine Rice - 4 servings @ about 400 calories each.

1 lb chicken breast, cut in thin strips
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups broccoli florets
3/4 cup brown jasmine or basmati rice

Sauce:
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth, plus 1/4 cup.
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tbsp cornstarch

Cook the rice using your favorite method (I cook mine Alton Brown style in the oven)

In a very hot pan, cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through. Remove to a bowl.

Add the broccoli to the pan, plus the 1/4 cup chicken broth, and reduce heat to medium. Steam broccoli until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, whisk together all sauce ingredients.

Add chicken and onion back into pan, pour over sauce, and toss. Raise heat back up to high, bring to a simmer, and cook until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice.
