2 medium garlic cloves, minced (bottled)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or 1 dried chili pepper minced
1 lb uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 2" pieces
2 cups cooked white rice


In med. bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside.

Heat oil in wok over med-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper and cook 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes.
