Thai-Style Chicken Stir-Fry

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)
"I love Thai chicken-coconut soup and wanted similar flavors in a fast, easy, low-fat entrée. We like it spicy, but you can reduce the amount of jalapeño. Serve over jasmine rice or cellophane noodles." -Elena Andrews Gaillard, New York City

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
