Honey Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Monday, June 7, 2010

I am a little bummed because my little dog is sick. He has been letting it out from both ends since we picked him up from the kennel yesterday. I guess he must have caught something from another dog that was staying there. I am just wondering how he would have gotten sick if they sanatize everything in between dogs. I don't think I will be going there again. In the process of taking care of Peanut, I wanted to make something yummy but fast by the time hubby got home from work today. I found it in a stir fry.
I love making stir frys because they are so quick and easy to make. This would make a wonderful week day meal when you just do not have time to cook. What I like best about this particular recipe is the sweet taste of the honey. I love sweet tasting meats. Hubby and I both enjoyed this recipe, so as long as hubby is happy then the recipe is a keeper.

Honey Orange Chicken Stir Fry

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces
2 garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 fresh orange, juiced
1 (16 ounce) package frozen broccoli stir-fry vegetables

In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken and garlic in 1 teaspoon oil. Add the honey, soy sauce, salt,pepper, ginger, red pepper flakes and juice from an orange. Cook and stir until chicken is lightly browned and juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
In the same pan, stir-fry the vegetables in remaining oil for 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Return chicken to the pan; mix well. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute. Serve over rice.
