The sauce for this stir fry is fantastic! So simple since it’s made with mostly orange juice concentrate and a sweet chili sauce you buy at Trader Joe’s or another supermarket. In addition, this stir fry is packed with fiber-rich veggies such as broccoli slaw and cabbage. Each serving has 251 calories and 3 grams of fat. You could serve it over brown rice if desired but I love it just the way it is. Pure yumminess!
Ingredients for Sauce:
- ⅔ cup sweet chili sauce, see shopping tips
- ⅓ cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or white vinegar, see shopping tips
Ingredients for Stir fry:
- Cooking spray, I like using olive oil spray
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 12 ounces chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces (boneless, skinless)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 (12oz.) bag broccoli slaw, see shopping tips
- 4 cups shredded cabbage (coleslaw) yellow or purple
- 1 cup snap peas or Chinese pea pods, sliced
- 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 cup scallions, sliced
In a medium bowl, mix together all sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Coat a large nonstick pan or wok with cooking spray. Add 1 teaspoon oil. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until chicken is completely cooked, about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and add to a plate. Set aside. Leave any juice from the chicken in the pan.
Coat the same nonstick pan with more cooking spray. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in pan. Add all the veggies. Stir-fry for 1 minute. Pour in half the sauce and red pepper flakes. Continue to cook and stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add back chicken and remaining sauce. Mix well. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes until chicken is hot and veggies are soft.
Makes 4 servings, each serving ~1½ cups
Broccoli slaw is shredded raw broccoli stalks.
Broccoli and cabbage are members of the cruciferous family which is believed to help protect against cancer. They are a super source of vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, and fiber.
Thanks to the broccoli slaw, cabbage, and all the other veggies, each serving has 6 grams of fiber!
Broccoli slaw is sold in bags in most supermarkets. Most of the time it has a little shredded carrot in it. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s.
Sweet chili sauce is sold at Trader Joe’s under their label. There is a variety of other brands sold in most supermarkets in the Asian or international section.
Rice vinegar can be found in most supermarkets in the Asian section. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s. Or, you can use any white vinegar instead.
