Ingredients

10 ½ ounces chicken broth
Campbell's condensed (1 can), divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup white vinegar
¼ cup sugar
white granulated
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce, sodium reduced
½ teaspoon ginger
ground
*
2 drops sesame oil
*
8 ounces water chestnuts
sliced (1 can, drained)
1 pound chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
cut into 1" chunks
1 medium sweet red bell peppers
or green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 stalk celery
sliced
*
11 ounces mandarin oranges
1 can, drained
4 cups rice, cooked
hot cooked

Directions

Gather together all the ingredients.

In a small cup or ramekin, stir together ¼ cup of the broth and the cornstarch; set aside.

In 10-inch skillet or wok over medium-high heat, combine the remaining broth, the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and water chestnuts. Heat mixture to boiling.

In 10-inch skillet or wok,
Cook until all sides have been browned.

Add chicken to skillet/wok. Reduce heat to low. Cook 10 minutes. Add pepper strips and sliced celery; cook 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

Stir in cornstarch/broth mixture. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Gently stir in the Mandarin oranges just before serving (they will break up if cooked longer than a few seconds).

Reduce heat to low.
Cook 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

Serve over hot cooked rice; garnish with orange peel curl and fresh parsley sprigs, if desired.

Instead of ordering take-out, make your own.

This is a nice departure from hum-drum weeknight "meat and potato" meals (and pretty darn tasty too) and easy to prepare if you don't feel like traditional Chinese take-out. I usually serve this dish with store-bought frozen eggrolls and various dipping sauces (e.g. sweet and sour, hot mustard, and/or hoisin) on the side. Hope you will try this recipe and enjoy as my family and I do.
