Stir-Fried Chicken & Broccoli with Mango Chutney


Resist the urge to make this stir-fry chicken recipe in a skillet instead of a wok, which will hold all your ingredients better. Buy a carbon-steel wok at an Asian market (or online) for around $30 and you'll have it forever. Make one stir-fry and you'll wonder how you survived without it.

  • 5 cups water

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat capellini

  • 1 tablespoon toasted (dark) sesame oil

  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • ¼ cup mango chutney

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely grated

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, divided

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and sliced (1/2 inch)

  • 5 cups broccoli florets

  • 1 bunch scallions, whites cut into 1-inch pieces and greens sliced, divided


  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook, stirring often, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain. Toss with sesame oil.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk broth, chutney, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, cornstarch and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil in a 14-inch flat-bottom carbon-steel wok over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add chicken and cook, stirring often, until just cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  4. Reduce heat to medium, add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, broccoli and scallion whites to the wok; cook, stirring, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Return the chicken to the wok. Make a well in the center of the ingredients and add the reserved sauce. Cook, stirring and combining it with the chicken and vegetables, until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve over the pasta. Garnish with scallion greens.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
