  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Orange chicken sauce (ingredients below)
  • Toppings: thinly-sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds, orange zest

  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • zest of one orange
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté for about 4-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned and nearly cooked through.

    TO MAKE THE ORANGE CHICKEN SAUCE:
  1. Whisk all ingredients together until combined. If you would like the sauce to be even sweeter, add an extra 2-4 tablespoons of honey.
