This Chicken and Broccoli with Orange Glaze is one of my favorite dinner ideas that I can make in under 30 minutes. It is very easy to make and has a beautiful orange flavor with a touch of sweet and spicy.
I really can use this orange glaze sauce (but in different variations) in other meals, like beef stir fry or pan seared salmon. Depending on the meal, I play around with the ingredients to make it perfect for other types of meat or fish dishes. I will definitely share my favorite version of Chipotle Orange Glaze that I use for seared salmon.
However, today we are going to make my easy and delicious dinner idea, Easy Orange Chicken. I usually start with cooking some rice as a side dish, but it is optional. For chicken, just chop up two medium size breasts into bite size pieces and stir fry them over medium/high heat. Add chopped broccoli and continue to cook for a couple more minutes. Add the sauce (orange zest and juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and cornstarch) and cook for a couple of more minutes until the sauce get thicker. Serve over rice and Enjoy!
