Orange Stir-Fried Chicken with Edamame

Yields 2 servings (3¼ cups each, including rice)


½ cup uncooked short-grain rice
1 cup calcium-fortified orange juice
1 Tbsp ginger root, grated
1 Tbsp orange marmalade
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp hot sauce

Nonstick cooking spray
2 tsp sesame or canola oil
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast
    (about 8 oz.), cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup shelled soybeans (edamame),
    frozen or fresh
12 oz. baby spinach (about 2 cups)


Cook the rice according to the package instructions. Set aside. Place the orange juice, ginger, marmalade, cornstarch, soy sauce, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.

Heat a skillet over high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add the sesame or canola oil. Add the chicken and cook one to two minutes, stirring often, until it browns. Add the soybeans and spinach. Reduce the heat to low. Stir the orange juice mixture and add it to the skillet. Cover and cook two to three minutes, until a thick sauce forms and the chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately with the rice.
