- 10 chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 1/8 cup fish sauce
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 bunch green onions
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- 1 bell pepper
- 4 oz sugar snap peas, or snow peas
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp hot chili flakes
- 2 tbsp orange zest
- 1 cilantro to garnish
Slice 1 jalapeno pepper and 1 bell pepper. Take 1 bunch green onions, cut it into half (white part and green part). slice the white part and green part thin, make sure they are separated.
Drain the Marinaded chicken mixture. Keep the marinade sauce, we will need the later. Add some oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, dump the chicken mixture in the pan. Cook for a few minutes, stir constantly.
Then push the chicken from centre to the sides of the pan. Cook for another 6 minute to reduce the sauce. Then toss the chicken around for another 6 minutes.
Add the chopped onion (white part), orange zest, and some diced garlic in the centre of the pan. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Then add half of the reserved marinade sauce. Reduce that for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, then add veggies and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Then top that with the chopped green onion (green part). Turn off the heat.
Served on some brown rice, which was a very nice combo with the orange flavors, since the brown rice
