well, that was real yum.

-Grilled chicken, sliced
-1 minced garlic clove
-Red pepper flakes
-Halved cashews
-3 cups of washed vegetables (We used snow peas, sliced bell pepper, broccoli, and cauliflower; we wanted to cut up some asparagus stalks as well, but there were none to be found at the store!)
-Brown rice

-1/4 c. reduced-sodium soy sauce
-1 T. honey
-3 tsp. sesame seeds
-Juice and zest of one orange (We juiced one more orange)

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté chicken, sliced into about 1/2-inch strips, 1 minced garlic clove, red pepper flakes (to taste), and halved cashews for about 7 minutes (if chicken has already been cooked; if it has not been cooked, you will need more time). Add vegetables and cook 5 minutes more, moving it all around constantly. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, 3 teaspoons of sesame seeds, and the juice and zest of 1 orange (we added juice from one more orange). You can add 1 T. sugar to this mixture if you want it a little bit thicker and sweeter and you can add a little more honey, if you desire. Add sauce to skillet to cover the vegetables and chicken, and then turn heat to low. Serve over 1/2 cup cooked brown rice. 

We sauteed some mushrooms on the side and added them to our bowls as well. It was a delicious meal and after a quick trip to the store and some improvisation, we had it made in under fifteen minutes. And guess what? One bowl was so filling and just 300 calories!
