This easy, versatile, 15-minute recipe is made super simple and delicious with my favorite fresh herbs – Dorot Gardens! You tell me, who doesn’t want to snap their fingers and magically have all the washing, chopping, and peeling of fresh herbs done with no mess at all?!

For this dish I used the classic garlic and zingy ginger. Dorot Gardens also offers basil, parsley, cilantro, dill and sautéed glazed onions. So convenient, you can worry about creating your masterpiece of a meal, instead of dicing, slicing and chopping. Truly become your own Top Chef!

At peak freshness, Dorot Gardens pulls their herbs from the fields and then they process and flash freeze them into convenient trays within 90 minutes of harvest. With a two year shelf life you can have fresh garlic, onions and herbs year round with the simple “pop” of the tray. Fresher than fresh, for sure!

Dorot Gardens is greatness! Without having to worry about knives in the kitchen, it’s perfect for letting my little helpers in the kitchen to mix, pour and stir. Plus, my kiddos love “popping out” the fresh herbs!

Not only can the kiddos help with this meal, they will enjoy it too! You might just want to leave the red pepper flakes off of their serving. The sauce is vibrant, flavorful, and made of ingredients you likely have on hand right.

Another great thing about this recipe is you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. I went with broccoli and used a packaged rice/quinoa mix that’s microwavable. But, really, the options are endless.

Ingredients
For the chicken:
  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast tenderloins, cut into 1-inch peices
  • 1 cube Dorot Gardens garlic
  • Juice & zest of one large orange
  • 1 packet stevia or 2 tablespoons sugar or another substitute
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari or liquid aminos or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 cube Dorot Gardens ginger
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot powder + 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, optional
  • Salt & pepper to taste
For the broccoli:
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cube Dorot Gardens garlic
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray, add chicken and garlic and cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until the chicken is lightly browned and fully cooked, (no longer pink in thickest piece), about 5-8 minutes.
  2. While chicken is cooking, add everything (except cornstarch and water) for the sauce together in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and place the pan back on the heat. Add in sauce and bring to a slight boil over medium heat. (Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan while bringing sauce to a boil, it will get the flavors from the garlic leftover in the pan incorporated into the sauce).
  4. In a small bowl mix together cornstarch and cold water until the cornstarch is fully dissolved. Add cornstarch to the orange sauce mixture in the pan and stir until slightly thickened, which takes about 1 minute. Turn off heat and add chicken back into the pan, coating it in the sauce. Garnish with red pepper flakes and/or sesame seeds if desired.
  5. I cook broccoli with garlic in a separate skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray, at medium heat for about 10 minutes while chicken is cooking.
  6. Serve with brown rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa, if desired.
