Return skillet to heat and add remaining 1 teaspoons canola oil. Add ginger and garlic; stir fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Stir in broccoli and carrots and stir fry until broccoli is bright green, about 2 minutes. Pour in orange juice mixture; bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Divide chicken mixture and rice among 4 plates.

This is really good! Instead of brown rice I served this over whole wheat couscous. I garnished with chopped green onion and sesame seeds. Thanks :)

Great WW recipe that tastes great with no artificial sugars! This makes about 3 servings for us, but we would double the veggies in the future. It tasted bright and cheery, very spring-like! Note: I used 1 Tablespoon finely grated ginger, but because I used a Microplane grater, I should have stopped at 2 teaspoons, it was a little intense. (Rule of thumb: 1 tablespoon = 1 inch of ginger.) Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
