March Recipe: Sweet & Sour Chicken with Broccoli

Recipe from


• 3 ounces dry ramen noodles

• 1 tablespoon canola or avocado oil

• 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

• ½ cup orange juice 

• 6 cups small broccoli florets (about 12 ounces)   

• 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

• 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

• 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch 

• 2 tablespoons honey

• 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic

• ¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper

• ½ teaspoon kosher salt


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

2. Crush noodles and spread on rimmed baking sheet.  Bake, stirring once, until lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.  Transfer the chicken to a plate.  Add orange juice to the pan and cook, scraping up any browned bits, for 15 seconds.  Add broccoli; cover and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.

5. Add the vinegar mixture, honey, garlic, crushed red pepper and salt to the pan; bring to a boil.  Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute.  Add the chicken and cook for 1 minute more.  Top with the ramen noodles. 

Total Time: Prep 20 minutes.  Cook 20 minutes. Yield: About 4 servings.
