      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 onion
      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
