The flavourful sauce for this chicken dish is slightly sweet thanks to a hint of orange juice. This recipe is perfect served on a bed of steamed rice.

  1. Slice chicken breast into slivers, about ½ inch (1 cm) thick. (This is easily done when partially frozen.)

  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken and keep warm. Discard chili pepper.
  5. Dissolve corn starch in 2 Tbsp (30 mL) orange juice. Raise heat; add cornstarch mixture to juices in pan, stirring constantly until thickened and clear.
  6. Replace chicken and coat thoroughly.
  7. Serve on a bed of rice, or soft Chinese noodles.
