A vegan take on a popular Asian-inspired dish made with rice, broccoli, and tofu simmered in a delicious orange sauce for an easy, flavorful, healthy weeknight meal!
You guys, let me start by apologizing. I’ve been keeping this dish from you, and there’s just no excuse really- but let me tell you what happened. I stopped eating chicken. That’s really what it comes down to, so naturally this recipe got pushed way back to the back of my brain and until my hubby requested that I make it, it was destined to just collect cobwebs.
Until now. I decided to bring it back and make it with tofu, and now I’m kicking myself for not posting this recipe sooner. We used to make this all.the.darn.time. This Orange “Chicken” recipe is so flavorful and even easier to make (and the leftovers are fantastic too!).
I’ve never been a huge chicken fan… my parents would always look at me funny because I would pick it apart looking for “nasty” stuff and eventually I would just get disgusted and wouldn’t eat it anymore. When I got married, it was just an easy option to turn to, and although I didn’t like it really, I would eat small amounts. It’s really no surprise that I ended up not eating it altogether, but it is a main staple in lots of recipes, like this Orange “Chicken”. So I wasn’t sure how replacing the chicken with tofu would be, but guys, I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner.
SO now that I’ve divulged how much I hate eating chicken, haha, let’s get to this amazing Orange “Chicken” recipe that will definitly be added to the “staple recipes” in my house from now on!
