Ingredients

1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon peeled, grated gingerroot
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 pounds skinned, boned chicken breasts, cut into strips
1/2 pound fresh green beans
Vegetable cooking spray
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil, divided
1/2 cup diagonally-sliced celery
1/2 cup diagonally-sliced carrot
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped unsalted roasted cashews
6 cups cooked long-grain rice (cooked without salt or fat)

Preparation

Combine first 4 ingredients in a heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag, and shake until chicken is well coated. Marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bag occasionally. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.

Wash green beans; trim ends, and remove strings. Cut beans diagonally into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Coat a wok or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; drizzle 2 teaspoons oil around top of wok, coating sides. Heat at medium-high (375°) until hot. Add green beans, celery, carrot, and onions; stir-fry 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from wok, and set aside.

Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to wok. Add chicken; stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is lightly browned.

Combine broth and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Add broth mixture to wok; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add vegetables and cashews; stir-fry 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
