P.F. Chang's Ginger Chicken with Broccoli (Reduced Calorie Version)

1/2 cup egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters)
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced

Stir-Fry sauce:
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
6 packets Sweet-N-Low artificial sweetener
1/2 cup chicken broth

3 cups chicken broth
8 ounces broccoli florets
2 tablespoons diet Parkay margarine
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons minced green onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil

1. Marinate the chicken ahead of time by combining the egg substitute, white pepper, and salt.  Add the chicken pieces and marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.  Drain well when ready to use.  Discard the marinade.

2. Combine the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce and set aside.

3. Bring the 3 cups chicken broth to a boil in a wok or skillet, then reduce to a simmer.  Add the drained pieces of marinated chicken and cook not quite all the way through.  Remove the chicken from the pot, drain, and keep warm.

4. Put the broccoli in the simmering chicken broth and cook until crisp-tender.  Drain and arrange in a ring on a serving platter and keep warm.  Discard the broth and wipe the wok clean.

5. Heat the wok again and add the margarine.  Add the ginger, green onion, and garlic, sauteing for just a few seconds.  Add the stir-fry sauce and simmer for a few minutes.

6. Add the reserved chicken and cook all the way through, 2 to 4 minutes.  Mix the 1/4 cup cornstarch with 1/2 cup water and add to the simmering wok.  Stir in the sesame oil.  When the sauce has thickened, pour the stir-fry into the center of the broccoli ring.
