Orange Chicken with Broccoli
Thank you all for the support of my new cookbook 30-Minute Family Cookbook! The book officially is released on June 8th but you can pre-order it now. My favorite recipe in the cookbook is this Orange Chicken with Broccoli. I had never made orange chicken before developing this recipe and fell so in love with it. 

We have made orange chicken many times since I finished my cookbook recipes. You can make it with broccoli as is or with a bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables. I love making it with stir-fry vegetables too to have a variety. The fresh orange juice makes a delicious sauce on the orange chicken. The honey sweetens it, the soy sauce and garlic provide a lot of flavor and the cornstarch thickens the sauce so it sticks nicely to the chicken and broccoli.

Serve over a bed of brown rice for a complete meal. Cauliflower rice would work as well! This healthier take on takeout orange chicken is so good that you will not miss the breading on the traditional recipe. It feels like takeout at home. I love making healthier takes on Asian food at home because my family loves it and it is simple to make. I hope you love it.
