Orange Ginger Chicken

Orange Ginger Chicken

One of the biggest challenges of working is creating healthy, fast weeknight meals. Sometimes, it’s just easier to order take-out or pick something up on the way home. Even freezer meals start to look appealing after a long day.  However, this spunky meal defies exhaustion.  With simple ingredients and quick prep, orange ginger chicken is one of my go-to meals.  A few nights a month, I’ll whip this up after work and Jason and i never seem to grow weary of it.

Soy sauce, grated ginger, orange marmalade, and honey blend to create a light, zesty marinade. The seared chicken is tender and packed with flavor.  Steamed broccoli, snow peas, and peppers add the finishing touch.

If you are gluten-free, be sure to use La Choy Soy Sauce or San-J Organic Tamari Soy Sauce.  I like La Choy cause it is cheap and tastes a little on the salty side… Plus, it’s fun to say, La CHOY. But, I think the San-J is better for you. 🙂
