Six-Ingredient Orange Chicken

Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 20 minutes

This simple stir-fry ticks all the Chinese-food craving boxes — stir-fried chicken, sweet-savory orange sauce and crisp pea pods — without loads of sodium or sugar. Coating the chicken breast pieces with cornstarch keeps the meat juicy, encourages browning, and thickens the sauce.

It pays to read labels here, opt for a low-sugar marmalade and reduced-sodium soy sauce to keep the sugar and sodium in check. Serve with steamed brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice.
