Clean Orange Sesame Chicken and Broccoli

My husband worked late tonight so I took this opportunity to make a meat dish. I had some broccoli that I picked up from the farmers market yesterday and some organic chicken breast so what do you make? Orange chicken of course.

Ingredients

    Olive oil – enough to coat pan
    1 inch nub of ginger minced
    4-5 cloves of garlic
    1 chicken breast cut into bite sizes pieces
    Sea salt to taste
    Fresh ground black pepper to taste
    Water – enough in pan to steam broccoli
    2 medium heads of broccoli cut into florets
    Juice of one orange
    Zest of one orange
    3 tablespoons Braggs amino acid or soy sauce
    2 teaspoons arrow root or cornstarch
    Honey
    Sesame seeds

      How to make a yummy dish

    Coat a frying pan with some olive oil. I never measure my cooking oil. Mince your garlic and ginger together and add to pan on medium heat. These amounts may be too much for your taste buds. I can’t get enough ginger lately so I load it up! Once the mixture has cooked and smells lovely but isn’t browned add your chicken to the pan and cook until cooked thoroughly. Buy organic free range chicken that hasn’t been fed antibiotics when ever you can. It costs more but is so much better for you.

    While this is cooking chop your broccoli into florets and juice your orange. I used my new Omega Vert juicer and it worked so well!

    Once the chicken has cooked remove it from the pan and set aside. And a little water to the pan and return to the stove. Add your broccoli, cover and steam. I just love the vibrant color of steamed broccoli.

    When the broccoli has cooked to your desired consistency, add the chicken back to the pan. Add the orange juice, zest, braggs, sesame seeds and a few drops of honey – no more than an 1/8 tsp. Try to buy your honey locally from an apiary you know. Commercial honey bees are fed high fructose corn syrup and pesticides causing bee populations to die off known as colony collapse. It’s a big problem. So buy locally from bees that are pollinating trees and plants and not eating HFCS. Yuck.

    Stir this all together and remove a tablespoon or so of the liquid into a small bowl. Add the cornstarch or arrow root and dissolve, add back to the pan and cook until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat and enjoy. I ate this as is because I was too lazy to make rice tonight. It would be excellent served over brown rice.
