Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Yesterday my husband bought a wok. He has always wanted to use one and what better place than Korea to try one out? I can't take credit for making this recipe. It was all my hubby! It came out great. If you don't have a wok you can use a skillet to make it. And if you don't have one you should go out and get one!
I found this recipe on PBS Parents. We couldn't find all the ingredients at the commissary so my husband had to improvise a bit or he just omitted some.
~ 1/2 cup orange juice
~ 2 tbsp soy sauce (La Choy)
~ 2 tbsp rice vinegar
~ 1 tbsp orange zest
~ 2 cloves garlic (minced)
~ 1 tbsp sugar
~ 1.5 lbs chicken breast (cubed)
~ salt and pepper
~ 4 cups chopped veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, celery)
~ olive oil
~ 1/2 cup onion
1. Add all ingredients for the sauce into a small pot. Mix well. Heat over medium for 5 mins. Set aside.
2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add a little olive oil to your wok/skillet. Cook chicken over medium heat until almost done. Add onions to the chicken. Continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink and the onions are soft.
3. Drain chicken and onions and set aside on a plate. Add all veggies to your wok/skillet. Cook veggies until they are no longer hard. Once veggies are done add in chicken and onion mix and sauce to your wok. Cook until everything is warm.
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! If you want a little spice you could always add some crushed red pepper.
