CASHEW CHICKEN STIR-FRY

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2-inch strips
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup sliced celery
3 cups broccoli florets
1 cup snow peas
1 1/2 cups cashews
Hot cooked brown rice

In a skillet, over medium-high heat, heat 3 tablespoons of the broth.

Combine cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger, and the remaining chicken broth, stirring until smooth; set aside.

Add the chicken to the skillet; stir-fry over medium heat until all the pink has disappeared. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken from the skillet and keep warm.

Add the garlic, carrots, and clery to the skillet and stir-fry about 3 minutes. Add the broccoli and snow peas; stir-fry another 4 to 5 minutes or until just crisp tender.

Stir the broth mixture and add to the skillet along with the chicken. Cook, stirring for a couple of minutes. Stir in the cashews. Serve over the hot brown rice.

Yield: 4 servings.
