Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a large lidded skillet or wok over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add pepper and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add another 2 teaspoons oil to skillet and heat until it shimmers. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl with vegetables. (If you are starting with precooked chicken, you can skip this step.)
  3. Add another 2 teaspoons oil and heat until it shimmers. Add chopped zucchini, carrots, cabbage, and sugar snap peas; cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add broth and cook, covered, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to bowl.
  4. Add remaining 3 teaspoons oil to skillet and heat until it shimmers. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, 15 seconds. Add rice (and precooked chicken, if using) and cook, breaking up clumps and stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add bowl contents, soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, and salt. Cook, stirring and tossing, until well mixed and heated through, about 5 minutes more.

Lots of veggies for the amount of chicken but you honestly don't miss the meat with all that's going on. Great balance of tastes, not too salty. Didn't have green onion, carrots or sesame oil....
