Orange-Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

Ingredients
3
tablespoons olive oil
1
pound carrots, cut into thin strips
1
medium red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into thin bite-size strips
1
pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
cup frozen shelled sweet soybeans (edamame), thawed
1
tablespoon grated fresh ginger
3
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 1/2
cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4
cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2
tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2
tablespoons cornstarch
2
tablespoons water
3
cups hot cooked quinoa
1
tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Directions

  1. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add carrots; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add sweet pepper; cook and stir about 3 minutes more or until carrots are tender. Transfer to a medium bowl. In the same skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir for 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Transfer to the bowl with carrot mixture. Stir in edamame.
  2. In the same skillet heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add ginger, garlic, and, if desired, crushed red pepper; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in broth, orange juice concentrate, and soy sauce. Bring to boiling.
  3. In a small bowl combine cornstarch and the water; stir into broth mixture. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Stir in chicken mixture. Cook and stir until heated through.
  4. Serve chicken mixture over quinoa. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
