Orange Chicken

We celebrated my sister Stephanie's birthday yesterday. This is what I made for dinner and everyone LOVED it so much I am posting it on Betsy! It is a healthy version of Panda Express' orange chicken. I served it over rice with a side of steamed broccoli.

1/2 c chicken broth
6 tbsp hoisin sauce (in the oriental section)
4 tbsp sugar-free apricot jam
4 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp orange zest
2 large oranges
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
4 chicken breast, defrosted and cut into cubes

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Mix and set aside. Place cubed chicken in a frying pan and pour sauce over chicken. Cook on stove on high heat. Liquid will evaporated some, forming a sauce you can use to pour over rice. If you want more orange sauce add a little more water as the chicken cooks. Serve over rice. Combine orange slices and cilantro in a small bowl and toss. Place on top of chicken and rice or on the side.
