Spicy Orange Stir Fry Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by moonpoodle

This is a combination of several recipes I found online and tweaked a little to pull together. THis recipe makes enough for a stir-fry that serves two people, but it is easily doubled or tripled. I like to marinate my chicken in it first, and then thicken up the left over marinade with the cornstarch, but it works just as well as just a sauce. I recommend trying a stir fry with chicken, broccoli, and peanuts.

Yum-yum-yummy and the perfect amount for two. I put this over a veggie stir fry for lunch. In place of the red pepper flakes I used about 1/4 t. cayenne. I reduced the cornstarch to 1 T. Loved everything about this tasty sauce and I'll keep it handy for many more "next times!" Thanks.
