Orange Chicken Broccoli with Cashews

I used two different recipes to come up with my version of this chicken dish. My nephew, Luke is a little foodie like his aunt Leah. And he was just too cute (can a 10 year old boy still be cute?) describing the flavors of this dish. He said that it had just a little bit of sweet from the orange, but not too much. He said it all worked well together. And I agree.

Orange Chicken Broccoli with Cashews
adapted from Rachael Ray and Aida Mollenkamp
2 T. oil
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. honey
4 chicken breasts, cubed
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
2 c. broccoli florets
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 oranges, zested and juiced
1 c. salted cashews

Marinate chicken with oil, soy sauce, orange zest and honey for at least 30 minutes. In large skillet, cook onion for 2 minutes. Add chicken and marinade, cook for 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Add broccoli and garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in orange juice and cashews. Serve with rice.
