Full recipe in video below
1 lbs chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
1/2 tbsp orange zest
3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp black pepper
chopped green onion
2 tbsp sesame seeds
BROCCOLI AND RICE
1 cup rice
1.5 cup water
salt and black pepper (to taste)
2 small heads of broccoli
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes.
In a frying pan, heat up sesame oil and cook the chicken until it's brown. It will take around 12-15 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.
Remove the cooked chicken and add the sauce to the empty frying pan.
Cook the sauce until it thickens, stirring throughout. It will take around 5-10 minutes.
Add the cooked chicken back into the frying pan and stir all the ingredients together to coat the chicken.
Sprinkle with chopped green onion and sesame seeds.
While cooking the chicken, cook the rice. Wash the rice and add it to a saucepan, then pour in the water. Add some salt.
Bring the rice to boil and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes. Make sure you cover the saucepan with a lid. Let it sit for another 10 minutes (make sure you cook the rice as per instructions on the packet).
Fluff your rice and leave it be.
Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Add a pinch of salt.
Wash the broccoli, cut away the stems from the crown, and slice your florets into pieces.
Add florets into the boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes until tender.
Remove and drain your broccoli.
Divide rice into 4 meal prep containers, and divide the orange chicken and broccoli. Your meal prep is ready! Keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days and reheat before eating.
