Skinny Sauteed Orange Chicken

I don't know about y'all, but as much as I love to cook, there are just some foods I would rather eat out at a restaurant or order as takeout. That is how I feel about Chinese food. I crave sweet and spicy chicken and noodles and egg drop soup! Recently, the folks from San-J, who make my favorite Asian bottled sauces, sent me a selection of their sauces to try and I thought I would give one of my favorite Asian dishes: Orange Chicken a try! I used both their Mongolian Marinade and their Orange Sauce for this recipe.  I decided to make a healthier non fried {"skinny"} version and to my happy surprise it turned out amazing and dare I say better than takeout! 
Scroll down for the recipe and to learn more about San-J and their new San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce.
For more than 200 years, San-Jirushi, the founding company of San-J, has been brewing Tamari soy sauce and miso products. Their company has been passed down through the generations and in 1987, the first Tamari brewery outside of Japan was built in Henrico, Virginia and San-J was born. Today, they faithfully continue the tradition of quality with a variety of Tamari soy sauces, Asian cooking sauces, salad dressings, soups, and rice crackers.
I was excited to try the selection of San-J sauces mailed to me!
I knew right away the Orange Sauce and Mongolian Marinade would be perfect 
for a Skinny Sauteed Orange Chicken recipe!

San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce 

San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce is made with 100% soy
and no wheat while regular soy sauce is made with 40-60% wheat. The higher concentration of soy protein gives San-J Tamari a richer, milder, more complex taste.
San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce is made without artificial
preservatives, flavors, or colors and is certified organic, gluten free, vegan, Kosher and Non-GMO Project verified.

Ingredients:

  • 1½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/4 cup San-J Mongolian Marinade {can sub San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce}

  • 1/2 cup San-J Orange Sauce
  • 1/4 cup green onions, diced
  • sesame seeds, for garnish
  • orange slices, for garnish

  1. In a small bowl, mix together Mongolian Marinade and cornstarch. 
  2. Add the cubed chicken and stir to coat. 
  3. Marinate the chicken for 10 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. 
  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade and add it to the skillet. 
  6. Stir-fry the chicken, over medium-high heat, for 5-7 minutes until golden and cooked through.
  7. Add the orange sauce to the chicken and cook for 4-6 minutes, stirring often until the sauce has thickened.
  8. Spoon onto plates and top with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Add orange slices on the side if desired. 
  9.  Serve over rice or noodles with a steamed veggie on the side.
Start with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I trim the fat and cut into cubes.
