'Eat It to Beat It'

Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

Stir-frys are naturally high in sodium, but this stir-fry flips the tables by wedding potassium powerhouses like sweet potatoes and broccoli with juicy chunks of chicken and a spicy-sweet sauce built with orange juice and chili sauce.


  • 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp Sriracha, or other Asian-style chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp peanut or canola oil
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 Tbsp fresh minced ginger
  • Cooking Directions

    Stir together the soy sauce, Sriracha, orange juice, vinegar, and cornstarch in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.

    Heat half the oil in a wok or large stainless steel pan over high heat. Add the chicken, stirring occasionally with a spatula or metal spoon, and cook until browned all over, about 3 minutes total. Remove to a plate and reserve.

    Turn the heat down to medium and add the remaining oil. Add the sweet potatoes, broccoli, onions, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened, about 8 minutes. Add the soy-orange juice mixture to the pan. Serve with steamed brown rice.
