Cooking at home with lean, health-conscious ingredients is a great way to have a flavorful meal without throwing all dietary concerns to the wind. This Healthy Orange Chicken recipe is a nice choice if you like the taste of Chinese food but need to watch your cholesterol, sodium, or blood sugar levels.
I have frequently enjoyed Asian-style orange chicken at restaurants in the past, and as it turns out, it isn’t that difficult a dish to put together. There is a marinating step, but you only need to marinate the chicken for about half an hour. And the agave and low-sodium soy sauce combined nicely with the other ingredients to make a delicious lightened-up sauce (while keeping the sodium levels and glycemic index relatively low).
