I have definitely been on an Asian food kick since having the delicious peanut chicken dish in San Fran. I was craving something a little sweet and savory and found this recipe in an old Weight Watchers cookbook. This took no time to make and definitely cured my craving.
I cut this recipe pretty much in half. You need stock, corn starch, OJ, broccoli, oranges, tamari or soy sauce, ginger and chicken. I used canned mandarin oranges instead of fresh.
Mix your cornstarch and water. This is called a slurry!
Measure the stock, soy sauce, and OJ. I did not have fresh ginger so I just put the dried ginger in with the sauce.
Chop your broccoli, I did this the night before.
Chop your chicken.
Lets cook! Get the oil heated in a pan. Again, I skipped using fresh ginger so I went straight to cooking the chicken. Cut this small it only takes a few minutes to cook.
Once cooked, get the chicken out of there.
Drop in the broccoli with some water and pop the lid on for about 3 minutes.
Return the chicken to the pan with the sauce mixture and give it a stir. Bring it up to boiling.
Stir in the slurry and let it thicken. Can you believe that it is this easy? Well, it is.
Stir in the oranges and you are ready to eat.
Delicious, fast and easy. That is a trifecta in my opinion.
What is your favorite Asian dish and have you ever made it at home?
