Weight Watchers Recipe-Orange Chicken with Broccoli

I made this Weight Watcher's recipe last night and it was easy and yummy! We served it with brown rice for an extra 2 pts.

Orange Chicken with Broccoli
(makes 4 servings)

4 teaspoons of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of minced peeled fresh ginger
1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts cut crosswise into 1/2 inch strips
2 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon cornstartch, dissolved in 1 tablespoon of water
1 orange, peeled and sectioned

1. In a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the giner and saute, stirring often, 2 minutes. Transfer to a small plate with a slotted spoon.

2. In the same skillet, saute the chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to another plate. In the skillet, combine the broccoli and water, stirring to scrape up the browned bits fromt he bottom of the pan; cook, covered, until tender-crisp, 3-4 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet; stir in the broth, orange juice, and soy sauce. Add the dissolved cornstarch; cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture boils and thickens slightly. Add the orange; heat through. Top with the ginger and serve.

Point Value=4

YUM, YUM!
