- Combine chicken and 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce in a medium bowl; let stand 10 minutes.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chicken and stir-fry until lightly browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes; remove to a plate.
- Add remaining teaspoon oil, broccoli, pepper, carrot, water chestnuts and white part of scallions to same skillet; drizzle with 1/4 cup broth and reduce heat to medium-high. Stir-fry until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 8 minutes.
- Add scallion greens, ginger and garlic to skillet; stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add chicken and any accumulated juices back to skillet; add remaining 1/4 cup broth, remaining 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and water. Cook, until heated through, stirring, about 1 minute. Stir in chili paste, if using. Serve with rice. Yields about 1 1/4 cups chicken-vegetable mixture and 1/2 cup rice per serving.
