Gourmet Momma turnes 1!

Wow! I missed our birthday! But that's OK, because the Gourmet Momma knows how to party ALL WEEK!! :) Our Birthday was actually on the 7Th! So Happy Birthday GM!

So, I thought I would celebrate by sharing a recipe for one of my favorite meals! Chinese Orange Sesame Chicken Stirfry (SLIMMED DOWN!!)

Chinese Orange Sesame Chicken Stirfry
Grocery List:
2 tsp sesame seeds
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut in chunks
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2-1⁄2 tsp oil
1-lb bunch bok choy, stalks and leaves cut in half lengthwise, then in pieces crosswise, leaves and stalks separated
2 small red peppers, cut in strips
1⁄3 cup each stir-fry sauce, orange juice and water
1 tsp grated orange zest

How to make it:
1. Cook sesame seeds in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until golden and fragrant. Set aside. Put chicken and cornstarch in ziptop bag. Seal and shake to coat.

2. Heat 2 tsp oil in same skillet until hot but not smoking. Add chicken; stir-fry 5 minutes until opaque in center. Remove to a large plate.

3. Heat remaining oil in skillet. Add bok choy stalks and peppers. Stir-fry 5 minutes until almost crisp-tender.

4. Add bok choy leaves; stir-fry 2 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients. Stir into skillet. Return chicken; stir until simmering. Place on serving plate; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
