Sweet Ginger Chicken
with Buttery Rice & Broccoli
Pork chops are always a weeknight winner. They’re satisfying, speedy, and so versatile, which is why our chefs are always brainstorming new ways to take ’em to the next level. The kicker this week: a fresh ginger and apricot jam pan sauce. On the side, there’s broccoli and a bed of buttery jasmine rice (perfect for catching any runoff sauce). Prepare for a flavor explosion.

• Wash and dry produce. Peel and mince or grate ginger. Cut broccoli florets into bite-size pieces if necessary. Thinly slice chili.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add half the ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• Place broccoli in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover tightly with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in wrap. Microwave until broccoli is tender, 1-2 minutes. Carefully uncover (watch out for steam!) and toss broccoli with salt and pepper. TIP: No microwave? No problem! Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook until tender, 2-4 minutes. Drain; season with salt and pepper.
• Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board. Wipe out pan.
Swap in chicken for pork; cook until cooked through, 3-5 minutes per side.
• In a small bowl, combine jam, stock concentrate, and 2 TBSP water (4 TBSP for 4 servings). • Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for pork over medium heat. Add remaining ginger and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Pour in jam mixture and simmer until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. (TIP: If sauce seems too thick, stir in water a splash at a time.) • Remove from heat and stir in 1 TBSP butter until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
