My husband loves Chinese food, but only the fried, bad-for-you kind. So I am trying to sneak in some Chinese food that is not fried and not so bad-for-you. This is my version of orange chicken. You can lower the salt by using low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce. Corey says it's good!


* 4 chicken breasts, diced
* zest from one orange
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* red pepper flakes or Mrs. Dash Spicy
* olive oil
* sprinkling of sesame seeds

for sauce:

* one orange, sectioned and membranes removed
* 2 cups frozen stir fry veggies
* 2 tbsp soy sauce
* 3 tbsp sugar
* 1.5 tbsp cornstarch
* 3/4 cup of chicken broth
* 1 tbsp vinegar

Steamed brown rice



1. In a large skillet, heat oil and fry garlic, orange zest sesame seeds and chili pepper flakes until

fragrant.

2. Add chicken and saute until browned.

3. When chicken is tender with a nice brown coat, add sauce mixture and allow to bubble and thicken

(happens almost immediately). Allow to darken in color as sugar caramelizes, then remove from heat. Serve

over steamed rice.

I love the fried, bad-for-you Chinese food, too, but I'm totally making this!

This sounds delicious and I'm not even normally much of a Chinese food fan. Definitely going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Oooh

I see you posting on GuDu and wanted to check out your icons [cuz I'm weird like that] and saw this. I love Chinese food, and Orange chicken is one of my [if not the] absolute favorites. I'm gonna save your recipe and try it out. ^_^

Also, I shamelessly adore your dreads.

I used to have over 110 icons, but then I let my Livejournal account lapse because I wasn't posting very much anymore, I'm always on Facebook. I'm mostly just dropping in to check dreadlock, piercing, and gaming stuff here nowadays. Thanks for stopping in, and thanks for saying hi! :-D
