• 1 1/2 t Peanut or vegetable oil
• 1 Dried hot chili peppers
• 5 oz Ground lean chicken
• 1 c Sliced onions
• 1 c Sliced mushrooms
• 1 c Red bell pepper strips
• 1 c Broccoli florets

In 9-inch skillet or wok heat peanut oil; add chili peppers, if using, and cook over medium-high heat for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove and discard chili peppers. If not using chili peppers, add chicken, onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, broccoli, garlic and gingerroot to skillet and cook over high heat, stirring quickly and frequently, until chicken is no longer pink, 2 to 3 times. In small mixing bowl, combine broth, cornstarch and sesame oil, stirring to dissolve cornstarch. Stir into chicken-vegetable mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until thoroughly heated, about 5 minutes.
