Hawaiian Ginger-Chicken Stew for Two

This chicken stew has a bold ginger-flavored broth and provides a whole serving of dark leafy greens in each bowl. We tried it with frozen chopped mustard greens (available in large supermarkets) and it was even quicker to prepare and just as delicious. Serve with brown rice.

Serves 2

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil, or canola oil
  • 1/2 pound chicken tenders, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1-inch pie fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks or minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry, (see Tip)
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian red chile sauce, such as sriracha, or to taste
  • 1/2 bunch mustard greens, or chard, stemmed and chopped (3-3 1/2 cups), or 1 cup frozen chopped mustard greens

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate with tongs.

Step 2

Add ginger and garlic to the pot and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add sherry and cook until mostly evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, 1 1/2 to 3 minutes. Add broth and water, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Add soy sauce, chile sauce and mustard greens (or chard) and cook until the greens are tender, about 3 minutes. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pot and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
