This is reminiscent of lemon or orange chicken found in Chinese restaurants. This was so yummy, the first time I made it, my husband ate the whole thing by himself! Serve with steamed white rice.

  • Drain the chicken, reserving remaining marinade. Place cornstarch on a plate. Dip the chicken in the cornstarch to coat.

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the chicken until no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove chicken from the skillet, and set aside, reserving remaining oil and juices.

  • Place a steamer basket in a pot over boiling water, and steam the broccoli 2 minutes, or until tender.

  • In the skillet with the reserved oil and juices, cook and stir the orange zest and garlic for about 1 minute. Pour in the remaining marinade, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, or until thickened. Toss the chicken and broccoli in the skillet, and cook until heated through and coated with the marinade. Place chicken in the center of a platter. Arrange orange slices and broccoli around the chicken to serve.

I'm sorry for this uncomplimentary review but this recipe just didn't work for us. I'm giving it 2 stars only because I realize that I may have done something wrong and the fault may have been on my end. However the broccoli combined with a sweetish citrusy taste just did not blend. I didn't save the leftovers. Sorry Jordanali. Read More

Delicious dinner! Really easy to make and with the addition of sliced portabello mushrooms and sugar snap peas along with the broccoli it made for a yummy veggie filled stir fry. I wasn't able to find guava nectar in my local grocery store so I used 1/3 C. of freshly squeezed orange juice and it made for delicious sauce. I was hoping for leftovers but the boys ate every single bite so it was a big hit in our house. Will definately make this again. Read More

This recipe is AMAZING!!! It was a huge hit in my home and easy to make. I felt like I made a dish that could be served in a restaurant. I didn't have guava nectar and used agave nectar instead. It was fabulous! Read More
