List of Ingredients
1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
12 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), cut into 1-inch pieces
4 medium scallion(s), green and white parts, chopped
2 Tbsp lemon grass, buy 1 stalk, discard tough outer portion and coarsely chop interior
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1 cup fat-free chicken broth, reduced-sodium
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp lime zest, freshly grated
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
8 oz uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti, cooked and kept hot
1/2 cup cilantro, leaves, fresh, coarsely chopped
Coat a large nonstick skillet or wok with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes, until golden brown on all sides.
Add scallions, lemongrass and garlic and stir-fry 2 minutes.
Add broth, soy sauce, zest and red pepper flakes and bring to a simmer. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Add spaghetti and cook 1 minute to heat through. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
