Orange Chicken

First the good news, I just finished week 2 and I lost 3.2 lbs! I am so excited to see the scale going down and down. I know eventually I will hit my goal weight and what a celebration that will be. Now on to week 3 and a recipe!

The recipe I wanted to share with you today is another one I found on the medifast recipe board called Orange Chicken. I changed it slightly by decreasing the amount of soy sauce and teriyaki sauce because I thought it was more than we were allowed and added some red pepper flakes to spice it up. It has an Asian flair and considering it only has a few ingredients, it has a lot of flavor. It could be because I marinated overnight and then some. I decided to cut the chicken breasts into small chunks and do a type of stir fry. Of course no rice, but you can shred cauliflower into small pieces and steam it.  I haven't tried it yet, but I heard it is a good substitute. The creative things people come up with! I might have to  try that. I served it with broccoli. I enjoyed this recipe, but then again I love orange flavors. Also, I cut the recipe in half for only 2 servings. Yum yum! Enjoy!
