But this one we really liked. From start to finish I had this ready in under 25 minutes. Sounds like a winner to me!
First of all, we served this over rice, and since I always do my rice in the microwave, I started it first- 20 minutes to cooked rice in the microwave and that's how long this dinner took me to make!
4 tsp. vegetable oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch strips
2 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp cornstarch, mixed with 1 Tbsp. water
In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Saute the chicken until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to another bowl and cover to keep warm. Combine broccoli and water in skillet. Cook, covered until tender-crisp. I used frozen broccoli, so I had to cook mine a little longer. If you use fresh, you should only need to cook it about 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet. Stir in the broth, orange juice, and soy sauce. I didn't have any mixed up orange juice, but I did have OJ concentrate, so I just used a 1/4 cup of the frozen concentrate. Let mixture heat to a slow boil. Add the dissolved cornstarch and cook, stirring frequently until the mixture thickens slightly. Serve over rice.
A couple note:
- I had to add more cornstarch/water in order to get mine to thicken.
- I would also add more broth, OJ and soy sauce next time. I would have liked it to be "saucier" than it was.
