Healthy Orange chicken.
As I had mentioned in my afternoon post today, I had Chinese food at the mall and I am seriously not very proud about the decision I made. But somehow it kept my taste buds tingling for Chinese food. I mentioned previously that the Jalapeno chicken was fantastic, but the orange chicken left an impression on my taste buds. So it was time for improvisation! I researched the recipe from various sites and I am so proud of my version. Seriously guys I know it is not right to appreciate your own work but this orange chicken is to die for!
Healthy orange chicken!
2 chicken breast about 4 oz each cubed into bite sized pieces
1 egg white
Salt and pepper
Mix all of the above and fry it in a skillet with Non stick cooking spray.
For the sauce:
1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 Tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Oat flour- fine or
1 teaspoon corn starch
Salt and pepper
Other ingredients :
2 stalks scallions
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
2 whole red chilies
½ cup orange pepper cubed
1 tbsp orange zest
- Once the chicken is prepped and the sauce is ready and set aside, start with the frying.
- Add 1 tbsp canola oil and add the ginger and garlic until nice & aromatic followed by the scallions and red chilies. Fry for just about 15 seconds and add the chicken and the zest.
- Add the peppers and the add the sauce. The Oat flour in the sauce will act like the cornstarch and thicken the mixture. give it just about 10 seconds and its ready to eat!
I served it with Mushroom Spaghetti (Baby Bella mushrooms with Garlic and scallions) and Green beans (sautéed in Non stick cooking spray, 1 tsp sesame oil, soy sauce and S &P)
