Orange Glazed Chicken

I've mentioned before that I love Chinese food. Every now and then, I just have to have it and that craving doesn't go away until I get my fix. This Orange Glazed Chicken is delicious and it really hits the spot. It has a deliciously sweet and slightly tangy taste, but it also has a little bit of a kick! And it's pretty inexpensive to make. Overall, this dinner is a win in my book! Serve over brown rice for a delicious meal.


Orange Glazed Chicken

Ingredients:

1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small pieces
1 bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon water

Directions:

In a small bowl, stir the first four ingredients and set aside. In a skillet, heat the olive oil on high and stir in the chicken and pepper slices (If your chicken is slicked thicker, you might want to add the chicken prior to adding the pepper slices. I typically cover the chicken while it's cooking; I've found that it stays more tender this way--oh and it browns beautifully. Once they are cooked, add the sauce to the skillet. Combine the corn starch and water in a small bowl and add the mixture to the skillet. Continue to cook the chicken mixture until heated through and the sauce begins to thicken.

*A note about the sauce: I would have been more than happy with half the sauce. When I make this again, I will either double the chicken and broccoli or halve the sauce.
