1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons grated ginger
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 carrots, cut into 1/8-inch rounds
8 ounces Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced or shredded
2 scallions (white and light green parts), sliced


Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger, and chicken broth in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the chicken and carrots and simmer for 6 minutes. Stir in the Brussels sprouts and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Divide among individual bowls and top with the scallions.

Upgrade: Add more flavor to this dish by drizzling it with aromatic toasted sesame oil just before serving.
