Chinese Style Chicken

We were watching an episode of Chopped tonight and there was a 16 year old contestant.
16 years old!
He was competing with all these people 2, 3 times his age...and handled himself like an adult.

He got "chopped" in the very first round for forgetting a basket ingredient.

I was impressed with his behavior. Such maturity.
He thanked them for a wonderful experience.
He really seemed to mean it as well, the sincerity just shone through.

We have seen full grown adults throw a version of a temper tantrum leaving the show.
Well done young man, well done!

1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 Lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (cubed)
2 Cups broccoli florets
1 Small red or green pepper (cut into strips)
1 Can (10.5 oz) chicken gravy
1 Tbsp soy sauce
¼ Tsp ground ginger
4 Cups hot cooked white rice

1. Heat the oil in a skillet

3. Remove chicken and set aside
4. Add broccoli and pepper and cook until tender crisp
5. Return chicken to skillet
6. Stir the gravy, soy, and ginger into the skillet and cook until warmed through
7. Serve with rice
