Turkey and Chili Pepper Stir-Fry

Ingredients
1/3
cup water
2
tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2
teaspoons cornstarch
 
Nonstick cooking spray
4
cups chopped bok choy
1
medium red or green sweet pepper, cut into thin strips
1/4
cup finely chopped seeded Anaheim pepper or 1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper*
1 1/2
cups cooked turkey breast, cut into bite-size strips (about 8 ounces)
1/4
cup sliced water chestnuts
2
cups hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. For sauce, in a small bowl combine water, soy sauce, and cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. Spray an unheated wok or large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add bok choy, sweet pepper, and Anaheim or jalapeno pepper; stir-fry for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Remove from wok.
  3. Add turkey to wok; stir-fry about 2 minutes or until heated through. Push turkey from center of wok. Stir sauce mixture; add to center of wok. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
  4. Return vegetables to wok; add water chestnuts. Stir to coat all ingredients; cook about 1 minute more or until heated through. Serve with hot cooked rice. Makes 4 servings.
  5. Because chili peppers, such as jalapeno, contain volatile oils that can burn you skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, wear plastic gloves. If your bare hands touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
