    tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • 1

    pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • 1/4

  • 1

    cup orange juice

  • 1

    tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2

    tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 3

    tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons honey

  • 1

    cup prechopped onion

Directions

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. While rice cooks, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Add chicken to pan, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan, and cut into thin strips. While chicken cooks, combine orange juice, cornstarch, vinegar, soy sauce, and honey, stirring with a whisk. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add onion, garlic, and ginger; sauté for 1 minute. Add green bell pepper and red bell peppers strips, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add orange juice mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 1 minute. Add the chicken to pan, and cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
