Tangy Orange Chicken

Searching for recipes is fun. I'm always looking for a fun recipe to try. One that caught my eye is Tangy Orange Chicken. I like to order it in Chinese restaurants, but I always feel it is missing something.  For one thing some vegetables would be nice. Also when watching for weight,  it's good to avoid fried things.

There is a Tangy Orange Chicken on Chefville. Now fair, because it made me hungry for it.

2 pounds chicken breast cut in 1 in pieces
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tablespoons Teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons minced ginger
2 Tablespoons chili sauce
6 table spoons of vinegar
4 cups mixed veggies, (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower)
1/2 onion diced
1 bell pepper diced, any color

Add soy sauce, teriyaki, ginger, garlic, vinegar, brown sugar, and orange juice in a small sauce pan on low. heat just until Brown sugar is dissolved and sauce is smooth. put chicken and  1/2 the ssauce in a Ziploc bag and marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.

heat some canola oil or peanut oil in a large skillet, cCook the chicken about 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and onion. continue cooking. add the veggies and the rest of the sauce. cook until  chicken is cooked through.

Serve with hot rice and orange slices.
