Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Need a healthy version of take-out Chinese food?

Trust me, Nothing is better than Take-Out!
(from a legit Chinese restaurant...of course)

But this comes close enough :)

This is quite delicious!
I love the BURST of orange flavor in this dish!
I love the crunchy vegetables as well!

My favorite part of this dish is how easy and fast it is to make!



3/4 c orange juice
1 Tbsp grated orange zest
scant 1/4 c soy sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil, or any oil
3 skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 - 2 c chopped broccoli
1/2 c shredded carrots
cooked rice*

*I used Uncle Ben's Brown & Wild Rice...90 sec in the microwave..BOOM, done!


  1. In a small bowl, mix 3/4 c orange juice, 1 Tbsp orange zest, (scant) 1/4 c soy sauce, 1 tsp minced garlic,  and 1 Tbsp brown sugar.  Mix well, set aside.
  2. In a fry pan add 2 Tbsp olive oil, add chicken.  
  3. Just before chicken is finished cooking, add broccoli and shredded carrots.
  4. Pour sauce over vegetables and chicken.
  5. Little by little, stir in 2 Tbsp cornstarch.  Turn down heat to simmer and to allow sauce to thicken, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Serve over rice.
