DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium pot over med-high heat, combine the rice, chicken stock, orange zest, and 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Bring the liquid up to a bubble and then decrease heat to low; cover the pot.
  • Simmer the rice until it has absorbed all the liquid, about 20 minutes.
  • While the rice is cooking, place a large skillet over med-high heat with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and saute until golden brown and cooked through, 7-8 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and reserve on a plate.
  • Return the skillet to med-high heat and add the red and green peppers, garlic, ginger, and onion to the pan.
  • Saute for 4-5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Season the veggies with salt and pepper, and push everything over to one side of the pan.
  • Add the butter to the pan, and as it is melting, sprinkle the flour over it; cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the wine, tamari, and five-spice powder and stir to combine.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and simmer until the sauce is thickened and the chicken is heated through, 2-3 minutes more.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork and stir in the scallions and orange juice.
  • Serve the stir-fry over the rice.
