How many of you like Chinese food?
I love it but every time I eat
orange or general tso's chicken
it seems so sweet and heavy.
Here is my creation of
a healthy orange chicken.
Instead of the chicken being coated
in cornstarch you only have 1 Tbsp.
of cornstarch in the sauce.
You will walk away feeling
light as a feather.
No heavy gut feelings here.
Saute chicken breast pieces in butter. Then add onion slices
and saute until partly soft. Add sauce ingredients and
simmer until thickened.
Taaa daaaa.... light, delicious, orange chicken.
Pair with cooked potatoes and salad.
Orange Glazed Chicken
3 large chicken breast, cut into pieces
3 Tbsp. butter
salt and pepper
1 small onion, sliced
3/4 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. fresh orange peel
2 Tbsp. vinegar
3 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
Cut chicken into pieces. Melt butter in skillet and add chicken.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry uncovered on low heat until done.
Add onions and saute until partly soft. Whisk together orange juice
and cornstarch. Pour into skillet and mix in orange peel, vinegar,
soy sauce and honey. Simmer until thickened.
p.s. I really enjoyed this tonight.
I guess I was hungry for orange chicken.
