Ahh, isn’t that pretty? It still amazes me that kids don’t like vegetables, they are really the prettiest food around town don’t you think? Well, this is a dish that even your picky-nonvegetable-eating kids will love! This sticky, slightly spicy, sweet, orange sauce is better than anything you can get at a Chinese restaurant. The best part about it for mom, is it is not only healthy but easy to make. I served this stir fry over brown rice last night and it was a huge hit!! I was able to use the zucchini and peas from my garden and it tasted so fresh and yummy I am excited to share this recipe with you. The best part about this sauce is it comes together in just a few seconds. It’s nothing fancy, just dump a few ingredients together and you have one of the best sticky orange sauces you can find. Homemade is much better than store bought and it only takes a few minutes. Hope you love this recipe like we did!

Instructions
  1. Whisk all of the sauce ingredients together in a seperate bowl. Then prepare the chicken and vegetables. In a wok or saute pan, add a few tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the cut up vegetables and saute just until tender, keeping them slightly crisp. When tender, remove the vegetables and set aside. Add a little more oil to the pan and then add the chicken pieces (if you want your chicken to have a little breading, just dredge in some flour, salt & pepper and then add to the pan). Let the chicken cook on one side until lightly golden brown. Once one side is golden brown, you can stir the chicken around to cook all sides and let cook on medium heat until the chicken is nearly cooked through. Then, pour the sauce over the chicken and let simmer until the sauce begins to thicken. Once the sauce is thick, turn off the heat, add the vegetables and serve all over cooked rice.
