    A Colon Cancer Patient Gets the Right Care at the Right Time

    Turn a bunch of broccoli into a classic Asian combo.

    Makes four portions

    This week, we continue our lighter food series:

    • 1 cup small onion, diced
    • 1 cup chopped raw chicken breast, about 8 oz.
    • ½ cup light soy sauce
    • 1 tbsp. turmeric
    • 1 tbsp. chopped garlic
    • ½ cup white wine
    • 2 cups water
    • 4 cups small broccoli florets
    • ½ tsp. chili flakes
    • 1 tbsp. sugar
    • 2 tbsp. ketchup
    • 2 tbsp. corn starch, mixed with 2 tbsp. water

    In a medium-sized pot on medium-high heat, place the small diced onion, chopped chicken breast, light soy sauce, turmeric and garlic.

    Bring to a simmer.

    Cook until the soy sauce is almost dry, then add the white wine. Reduce by half and pour in the water, broccoli, chili flakes, sugar and ketchup.

    Return to a simmer and continue cooking until the broccoli is crisp but cooked, which should take about seven minutes. Incorporate the corn starch-water mixture while stirring to thicken. Serve over plain steamed white rice.
