This is so yummy you'll want to eat it all yourself!

What you’ll need:

¼ c orange juice
1 ½ Tbl cornstarch
1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
¾ c chicken broth
1 ½ Tbl soy sauce
2 ½ tsp vegetable oil

1 ½ c snow peas OR green beans
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into thin strips (about 1 c)
¾ c sliced green onion
1 c frozen broccoli, thawed
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
2 c cooked white rice

Combine the orange juice and cornstarch in a shallow glass bowl. Add the chicken strips and stir to coat them well with the marinade. Cover and chill for 2 hours. Drain and discard remaining juice. In a small bowl, mix together the broth and soy sauce. Set aside. In a wok or skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add the vegetables and cook and stir an additional 5 minutes. Stir in broth/soy sauce and heat through. Remove from heat.
