reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ cup(s)

rice wine vinegar

2 tsp

low sodium soy sauce

2 tsp


1 tsp

canola oil

2 tsp

edamame (shelled)

10 oz, thawed frozen (2 cups)

ginger root

1 tsp, fresh, peeled and grated

garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), crushed through a press

crushed red pepper flakes

¼ tsp

restaurant type chicken tenders

1 pound(s), cut into 1-inch chunks


  1. Combine the broth, vinegar, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth; set aside.
  2. Heat a nonstick wok or a large skillet over high heat until a drop of water sizzles. Add 1 teaspoon of the oil, swirl to coat the pan, then add the edamame. Stir-fry until lightly browned, 2–3 minutes. Transfer the edamame to a plate.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the wok, swirl to coat the pan, then add the ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Stir-fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the chicken; stir-fry until lightly browned, 3–4 minutes. Stir in the broth mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture bubbles and thickens and the chicken is just cooked through, 1–2 minutes. Stir in the edamame and heat through, about 1 minute. Yields 1 cup per serving.


To thaw edamame quickly, rinse in a colander under warm water.
