Easy Orange Chicken

Ingredients:


  • 1¼ lb boneless/skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1” pieces
  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup orange marmalade
  • 1 Tbl brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 Tbl soy sauce
  • 1 Tbl cornstarch
  • 1 Tbl water
  • 1-12 oz package frozen broccoli
  • 2 cups of prepared quick-cook rice

Cooking Directions:


Prepare quick-cook rice from package directions; set aside.

Whisk together the orange juice, marmalade, brown sugar, ginger and soy sauce in a small saucepan.  Bring to a low boil.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the breast pieces to the skillet. Sauté the chicken for 6 minutes, tossing to brown evenly. Meanwhile, mix the cornstarch and water together, making sure there are no lumps.  Slowly whisk the cornstarch mixture into the simmering sauce in the saucepan.  Cook 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens and clears.

Add the broccoli to the chicken. Sauté for 3 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and broccoli is tender. Chicken is done when punctured with a fork and juices run clear. Internal temperature must reach 165°F.

Serve the chicken and broccoli over the rice and top with the orange sauce.
