Used snow peas, mushrooms and red peppers for the veggies, and didn't add any cashews. It still came out delicious.

1 teaspoon orange zest
1 garlic cloves
1 ½ pounds chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless

I have always been cautious about reusing any marinade,, especially one done with chicken at room temp. I would add a warning to make sure you boil the sauce for at lest a minute and to not use the marinade if it was at room temp with the chicken for much more than 30 minutes.

Totally agree, the remaining marinade should be boiled for at least 1 minute or two after pouring into the skillet. Or just simply discard the marinade, then make a new sauce with the same ingredients that are used to make marinade.

Is it safe to reuse a marinade that has had raw chicken in it and only cook it one minuit?

Soup lady

An easy solution is to marinate your chicken in 1/2 the sauce, using a shallow dish instead of a bowl. It takes far less marinade to cover - just turn once during the marination - then use the rest of the reserved marinade to complete the dish. I do this sort of thing with many recipes, or I just make a little extra of the sauce at the start and do the same thing.

I agree with Soup Lady... either use half the sauce or double the sauce (marinade) and use half for marinating the chicken and the other for the sauce. I never use leftover marinade that was used to marinate chicken, especially. Too risky.

Don't make it complicated. There was and is little refridgeration in rural china, so just boil it!
