Asian Orange Glazed Chicken w/ Veggies and Brown Rice

Submitted by: LEIAMLOW


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Marinade:
    1tsp Orange Zest (for my recipe I used clementines because that is what I had in the house)
    2tbsp Orange Juice (again, I juiced 1 clementine-yielding about 2 tbsp pulpy juice)
    1 tbsp Rice Vinegar
    1 tbsp Ponzu (Citrus flavored soy sauce)
    1/2 tsp Chili Powder
    1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
    1/2 tsp Garlic powder
    Reduction Glaze:
    1tsp Orange Zest
    1/2 cup Orange Juice
    2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
    1 tbsp Ponzu
    a few chunks of crystallized ginger
    1tsp Garlic powder
    dash of chili powder
    1 clove fresh minced garlic (we like garlic)

    2 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch chunks
    1 cup baby carrots (or whatever veggies you prefer)
    1 cup shelled edamame

Directions

Add all marinade ingredients to a large zippered bag. Toss in chicken and smoosh around to coat. Let marinate for about 15-20 mins.
For the reduction: add all ingredients except fresh garlic to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer until reduced by 1/3. Add fresh garlic (keeps a nice bite of garlic without being too overpowering). Continue to simmer for 2-3 more minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a large heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp Sesame oil just before adding your chicken (if the pan is too hot the oil will smoke). Get a good sear on your chicken and saute until cooked through, about 4-6 minutes. I steamed my veggies a bit and then tossed them in with the chicken. There will be a bit of pan sauce from the chicken cooking and it coats the veggies nicely.
Serve over brown rice with additional sauce on top to taste.
