This orange chicken and broccoli stir fry comes together quickly and is great re-heated for leftovers.
You really can’t go wrong with a stir-fry. There is something about putting food in a hot pan, crisping it up and marrying it all together for a great meal.
I am a really big fan of Asian food. Partly because I grew up on American Chinese takeout and mostly because I had access to some AMAZING Asian food while living in Hawaii. The fresh flavors and the umami of it all made you come back for more at any time and I could really appreciate that!
However, the bloating, headaches and general gross feeling caused by the MSG or whatever else can be put in these dishes wasn’t making my body happy. Luckily, making Asian food at home like this orange chicken and broccoli stir fry is pretty simple if you have the right flavors.
In this dish, I used The New Primal classic marinade paired with sesame oil and orange. You could sub out the marinade for soy sauce, braggs liquid aminos or coconut aminos as well. Try different meats and vegetables to customize you meal and serve over a bed of greens, rice, potatoes or cauliflower rice.
