Ingredients

Preparation

Remove 1 teaspoon zest from an orange using a microplane or zester. Cut the orange in half and squeeze out the juice into a bowl. Add the zest, chicken stock or water, sugar, soy sauce and rice vinegar to the bowl. Whisk until combined and set aside.

Peel and segment the other orange. Set aside.

Place the flour, salt and pepper in a resealable, plastic bag. Add the chicken pieces, seal the bag and shake to coat. Remove chicken, shaking off excess flour.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in the skillet and cook until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Add the orange sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.

Serve the chicken over cooked brown rice or quinoa and top with reserved orange segments, green onions and sesame seeds.

Notes

Dusting the chicken with flour in a plastic, resealable bag is a great way to get kids involved in the cooking process without the mess. With supervision, older kids can help cook the chicken and sauce on the stovetop. Try “slicing” green onions with a pair of clean scissors instead of a knife!
