Instructions
 

Orange Chicken

  • In a 12-inch non-stick wok, heat ½ tbsp oil over medium-high heat.
  • Once oil is hot, add diced chicken and season lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 to 6 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly, tossing occasionally.
  • Place chicken on a large plate and set aside. Reduce wok to medium-heat and add remaining oil.

Asparagus

  • Once oil is hot, add asparagus, yellow onion and mushrooms, and sauté until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes, adding in garlic and ginger during the last minute of sautéing.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together chicken broth, orange juice, honey and flax seed* until well blended.
  • Pour chicken broth mixture into skillet with veggies and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring mixture to a light boil, stirring constantly until thickened.

Optional

  • Substitute ground flax seed for whole wheat flour, whisk together with chicken broth, orange juice and honey until well blended.
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds before serving.
