Fig, Apple, and Chicken Stir-Fry

Preparation Time: 30 minutes or less
  • 2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 12 oz. (3) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 8 dried figs, chopped
  • 1 medium red apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 oz. snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 medium carrot, cut diagonally into thin slices
  • 2 cups bok choy, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • rice or noodles for serving (optional)
To make the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, soy sauce, water, cornstarch, and sugar until blended and smooth.
To make the stir-fry: Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and the chicken; stir-fry until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Transfer the chicken to a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon oil to the skillet. Add the dried figs, apple, snow peas, and carrot; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add to the chicken in the bowl. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, bok choy, and scallion to the skillet; stir-fry for 1 minute. Return the chicken mixture to the skillet along with 1/2 cup of the sauce. Stir-fry until the sauce thickens and boils. Serve with rice or noodles, if desired.
