Ingredients

  • 1 3-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely grated or crushed
  • 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari (TRY: San J Reduced-Sodium Tamari)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 tsp raw honey
  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne powder (TRY: Simply Organic Cayenne Pepper)
  • 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 12 oz broccoli (with stems)
  • ½ daikon radish, peeled and cut into 1-inch-long x ¼-inch-wide matchsticks (Tip: Substitute with 3 standard Cherry Belle red radishes if you can’t find daikon.)
  • 4 green onions (light and dark green parts separated), cut into 1-inch lengths, divided
  • 3 carrots, cut into 1-inch-long x ¼-inch-wide matchsticks
  • ½ cup raw unsalted cashews
  • ½ tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1 firm mango, peeled, pitted and cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch

Preparation

1. In a small bowl, stir together ginger, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and cayenne. Transfer 3 tbsp to a large bowl; add chicken to large bowl and toss to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Reserve remaining ginger mixture.

2. Meanwhile, cut broccoli into 2-inch florets, reserving stems. Halve florets lengthwise. Peel stems; cut into 1-inch-long x ¼-inch-wide matchsticks to yield about ¾ cup.

3. Mist a large nonstick skillet or wok with cooking spray; heat on medium. Add broccoli florets and stir-fry until tender and bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.

4. Mist same skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high. Add broccoli stems, radish, light parts of green onions, carrots, cashews and ¼ tsp salt and stir-fry just until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to plate with broccoli florets.

5. Mist same skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium. Add chicken and remaining ¼ tsp salt and stir-fry until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mango, dark green parts of green onions and reserved ginger mixture and stir-fry for 1 minute. Whisk together broth and tapioca; add mixture to pan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink inside and sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes. Add broccoli mixture; toss to coat.
