Improved Orange Chicken Stir-Fry
Last night I spoke to one of my teams and we were discussing the best (and worst) choices at some of their favorite fast food places. Chinese food is always a favorite among teenagers, but our fast food choices were very high in calories, fat, and sodium. For example, the orange chicken and white rice dish added up to 800 calories and almost 20 grams of fat.
In search of a better option, I found this delicious and MUCH better-for-you Orange Chicken, thanks to my friends at Clean Eating Magazine. I love the addition of crispy, spicy chickpeas; not only super flavorful but adds a significant amount of fiber to the dish, helping you stay full longer and stabilizing blood sugar. Give it a try tonight and let me know how it goes! The finished product not only weighs in at 371 calories and 6 grams of fat, but it only costs $2.70 per plate! Winner!!!
