      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
