    Spicy Orange Chicken

    3/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed

    zest from 1/2 an orange

    1 tbs low-sodium soy sauce

    2 cloves garlic

    2 tsp grated fresh ginger

    2 tsp red pepper flakes

    2 tsp cornstarch

    1 tsp sesame oil

    1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes

    2 carrots, thinly sliced

    1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa

    2 sliced green onions

    red pepper flakes, to taste

    In a medium bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients. Set aside.

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, stirring occasionally so that all sides get browned. Once chicken has browned, add carrots and cook, stirring, until carrots are softened, about 5 min.

    Pour in sauce and cook until sauce is thickened, 3 to 5 more min.

    Spoon into bowls with rice or quinoa and sprinkle with green onions and red pepper flakes.  Serves 2
