½ c orange juice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp orange zest
2 lg cloves garlic
1 tsp minced garlic
Optional sweetener like sugar, honey, agave, etc
1 lb chicken tenders cut into bite sized pieces
Salt & pepper
3 Tbsp corn starch
4 c chopped vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, celery, mushrooms, zucchini etc
½ c onion, chopped
Blend all the sauce ingredients. Taste and add your choice of sweetener to your liking. Heat the sauce until heated through and then set aside.
Season the chicken with salt & pepper and then add the corn starch and massage into the chicken.
If using vegetables like broccoli or carrots you can lightly steam them to a tender crisp state to be sure to cook them through.
Heat about 1 tablespoon oil in skillet . Add the onion and chicken and cook until chicken is cooked through. When the chicken is cooked add the remaining vegetables and stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
Slowly add a few tablespoons of sauce while stirring the vegetables and chicken. Continue to add the sauce a few tablespoons at a time, allowing about 15 seconds between each addition to allow the sauce to thicken slightly.
Serve the stir fry over rice or as we did…over vermicelli pasta.
