POINTS® Value: 5
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 13 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

We paired this Japanese favorite with a side of broccoli for a burst of color and a huge nutrient boost. Grab some chopsticks and dig in.

1 spray(s) cooking spray
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 medium scallion(s), chopped (green and white parts)
1/2 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth
2 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
2 cup(s) cooked brown rice, regular or instant, kept hot
4 cup(s) broccoli, fresh, florets, steamed*

* Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add garlic; cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add chicken; cook until golden brown on all sides, stirring often, about 5 minutes.

* Add scallions; cook until soft, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add broth and teriyaki sauce; simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.

* Spoon 1/2 cup of cooked rice into each of 4 shallow bowls; spoon about 1 cup of chicken mixture and 1/2 cup of broccoli over each serving.


* *To steam broccoli, place florets in a microwave-safe dish, add about 1/2 inch of water and cover dish. Microwave on high until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Or to steam in a saucepan, set broccoli in a steamer basket or colander over simmering water, cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
