Orange Stir-Free Chicken

INGREDIENTS

SAUCE:
  • ¾ c. orange juice
  • ¼ c. honey
  • 2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. grated orange zest
  • ½ tsp. hot red pepper flakes
STIR-FRY:
  • ⅓ c. all-purpose flour
  • ¼ c. whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 c. broccoli florets
  • 1 c. sugar snap peas
  • 1 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 c. shredded cabbage or baby bok choy
  • 1 can water chestnuts
  • 1 c. shredded carrots
  • ¼ c. sliced, toasted almonds
  • ¼ c. crispy Chinese egg noodles

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine sauce ingredients.
  2. In a pie plate, combine flour and breadcrumbs. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites. Toss chicken pieces in egg whites, then in flour mixture to coat.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet or a wok, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until browned all over; remove from skillet.
  4. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Add garlic and all vegetables except carrots and stir-fry about 3 minutes. Add carrots and stir-fry 30 seconds. Pour sauce into skillet and stir-fry until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Add chicken back to skillet and stir-fry 1 minute, until chicken and vegetables are coated with sauce. Remove from heat; sprinkle with almonds and noodles. Serve with steamed rice (3/4 cup cooked rice per serving).
