These days, I avoid MSG at all costs, so a lot of our local take-out Chinese food is off my list, but not wanting to deprive my kids of some of my childhood favorites, I came up with this healthy and delicious dinner treat that we all loved.

Ingredients

Orange juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Ginger 2 Teaspoon , grated
Honey 1 Teaspoon
Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) , minced
Soy sauce 2 Tablespoon
Canola oil 1 Tablespoon
Chicken breast 1 Pound , cubed, boneless, skinless
Snow peas 1 Cup (16 tbs) , halved
Red bell pepper 1 Medium , cut into 1

Directions

4. Add the sauce to the pan, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes until reduced by half.

5. Add the chicken and vegetables back into the sauce and cook an additional minute.
