Real Meals: Cara Cara Orange Chicken

Our weekly Real Meal offers you a healthy dinner idea, using our favorite organic and all-natural products. (And featuring sale items from our Weekly Real Deals Flyer!) This week, we were inspired by this mouthwatering recipe for Cara Cara Orange Chicken, which comes together very quickly but packs a ton of flavor. (Don’t have Cara Cara oranges? Simply substitute navel oranges!)

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together ½ cup freshly squeezed Cara Cara orange juice, ½ tsp orange zest, 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce (optional), ¼ cup chicken stock, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar, 2 tsp rice wine vinegar, and 2 tsp cornstarch.
