    cathyfood's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from one I found on Martha Stewart's website. It's delicious and filling, a little spicy, with plenty of vegetables, and it's on the table in 45 minutes! What more can you ask? Oh, yes, it's gluten-free. Use as many vegetables as you want - the more, the merrier. Make sure you start the brown rice first, then begin your veggie prep.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook rice according to package instructions.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Add garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, wine, and red-pepper flakes, snow peas and all other vegetables; toss to combine, and set aside.
    3. 3
      In another bowl, whisk together egg whites, remaining 3 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken cubes, and toss to coat.
    4. 4
      In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Lift half the chicken from egg-white mixture (shaking off excess), and add to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate; repeat with remaining oil and chicken, and set aside (reserve skillet).
    5. 5
      Add vegetable mixture to skillet. Cover; cook until veggies are tender and sauce has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. (have a little water on hand to add in case it gets too thick while cooking) Return chicken to skillet (with any juices); toss to coat. Serve with rice.
