Orange Chicken

Its another Scrumptious Saturday! (I’ve decided that my Saturday blogs will be recipes.) Today I bring you yet another Asian inspired chicken recipe! Don’t worry, I do cook other things so you’ll get something different next week! Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of this one. This recipe will use all four burners on your stove, so if you only have two, you may want to get some microwavable broccoli, cook the chicken ahead of time, or use a rice cooker as alternative options. The sauce probably won’t smell good while its cooking, but don’t fret. It is delicious!

Ingredients:
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
Rice (I just use instant white rice)
Broccoli
1 ½ cups water
2 tablespoons orange juice
¼ cup lemon juice
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 ½ tablespoons soy sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon ginger
3 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup water

Directions:
Combine 1 ½ cups water, lemon juice, orange juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in large saucepan.  Blend well over medium heat for a few minutes.  Stir in brown sugar and ginger.  Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, cook chicken, rice, and broccoli.
Combine cornstarch with ¼ cup water and mix thoroughly.  Slowly stir cornstarch mixture into sauce until it thickens.  Pour sauce over chicken, rice, and broccoli.
