Number of Servings: 6


    Turkey breast meat, 1.5 lbs
    Soy Sauce, 1 Tbsp
    Rice Wine Vinegar, 2 tsp
    Ginger, ground, .1 tsp
    Cornstarch, 1 tsp
    Orange Peel, 1 tbsp
    Pepper, black, 1 dash
    Sesame Oil, 1 1tsp

    Sweet Red Bell Pepper, fresh, 1 medium, chopped
    4 baby carrots, chopped
    Dried Minced Onion, 1 tsp
    Hot Chili Peppers, 2 pepper
    *Splenda, 4 tsp
    Canola Oil, 3 tbsp


I used fresh, skinless, boned Turkey breast. Cut into 2" long strips. Mix next 7 ingredients in an air-tight bowl; add turkey strips. Marinate overnight.

Next day, chop 1 Red Bell Pepper, 3-4 small carrots and place in bowl with Dried Minced Onion.

I use a Wok. Heat 1 T. oil at 350 degrees. Put vegetables in Wok after oil is hot. Stir regularly about 5 minutes.

Next, turn the temperature up to 400 degrees (don't forget to stir), add rest of oil and then add all of meat mixture and marinade. Stir, cook 10 mins. You might need to turn down the temperature.

It's done! Add Splenda to taste. I added some Chipotle powder to make it spicier, but if you buy the right hot dried chilis, maybe you won't need to.

I served with brown rice; for me, 1/3 c. brown rice.
