Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • optional sweetener like sugar, honey, agave, etc.
Stir-fry:
  • 1 pound chicken tender cut into cubes
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 4 cups chopped vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, celery, mushroom, snap peas, etc.
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup medium yellow onion, chopped

Instructions

  • Blend all the ingredients for the sauce in a blender or food processor for 10 seconds.
  • Taste the sauce and add your choice of sweetener to your liking.
  • Blend again for a few more seconds.
  • Heat the sauce in a large skillet on medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer the sauce to a heat proof bowl.
  • Rinse the skillet clean.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Add the corn starch and massage the chicken with your hands.
  • If using fresh broccoli or green beans, boil the broccoli for 3-5 minutes until soft enough to pierce with a fork yet firm.
  • Transfer the vegetables to a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Wipe down the skillet until dry.
  • Heat approximately 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Cook the onion and chicken until the chicken is cooked through, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the remaining vegetables and stir-fry them together for 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 sauce to slightly cook down.
  • Spoon the stir-fry over a bowl of hot rice. Serve immediately.
