INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THIS ORANGE GARLIC CHICKEN STIR FRY RECIPE
- Chicken – boneless skinless chicken breasts are used here, but chicken thighs are a tasty sub.
- Broccoli – bags of frozen florets in the freezer means you always have the makings for a stir fry. Thaw before using.
- Cauliflower – fresh or frozen, both are equally fine.
- Garlic – pre-minced garlic is a super time-saver for meal prep.
- Orange Juice – fresh or from the carton are both fine. No orange juice? Substitute chicken broth.
- Soy Sauce – low-sodium, regular or substituting low carb Tamari will all give stir fry sauce nice flavor.
- Cornstarch – this is an essential for quickly thickening the sauce. Using 1 teaspoon of Xantham Gum can be a low carb alternative.
You can use any vegetables you want here. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, snap peas, zucchini – they’ll all work fine. Leftovers are great too. Best advice – try to use veggies that are all cut the same size and will cook in about the same time.
Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces for quick cooking. You could also swap out the chicken for beef, pork or shrimp. Going meatless? Mushrooms or tofu are great substitutes and add bulk to the stir-fry.
Pairing the flavor of orange with the garlic is what makes this dish so tasty and fresh. If you don’t like orange, you can substitute chicken broth for the orange juice.
