3/4 c chicken broth, reduced-sodium
2 TBS cornstarch
2 TBS Splenda
2 TBS low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 TBS white wine vinegar
2 medium scallions, chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or 1 dried chili pepper, minced
1 lb uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 c cooked brown rice, kept hot

In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper and cook 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes. Add reserved sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Serve chicken and sauce over rice.

Yields about 1 cup of chicken and sauce and 1/2 cup of rice per serving. Serves 4
