Healthier Orange Chicken

Orange chicken tastes great, but I always feel a little guilty after eating it. Orange Chicken Blog
I normally would make orange chicken breaded and fried. This time I went without the extra flour and excess oil. It’s not the same as take-out, but it’s guilt free and so delicious!


  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 3 tbs corn starch
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (no pulp)
  • 1/8 cup tamari or low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey (no honey before one)
  • green onion (optional)
  • sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs chopped garlic
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
