Orange Chicken & Lo Mein - the Wildtree Way

Wildtree.  Amazing.  NO GMO's, certified ORGANIC, there are no, absolutely NO ingredients in anything that you cannot pronounce!  Refreshing isn't it?

This is what I made for supper tonight.  Orange Chicken and Lo Mein.  

NOTE: I would ordinarily have made rice with this, but when I searched the pantry there was no rice to be found and I HAD to have some carbs - thus the Lo Mein. 

So Yummy.  So easy to make.. took under 30 minutes from stove to plate.

That is it. Easy huh? 

  1. I cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces. 
  2. Poured 2 tablespoons of Natural GSO into pan and heated it up.  It is ready when you see little waves appear in the oil.
  3. Place chicken pieces in the pan and cook until done (I like a light brown coating on mine - gives it a little extra flavor.  I also cooked my chicken in batches because I wanted to make sure it was completely cooked, part of the chicken was still a little frozen (but that makes it so easy to cut into small sized pieces).  After each batch is done, move to a plate until the chicken (smells so good), is ready to go back into the pan.
  4. Measure 2 TBS of soy sauce into pan
  5. Measure 1/2 cup of Wildtree's Outrageous orange sauce into pan and start to heat up
  6. Put all chicken back into pan and coat with the sauce.
  7. Add onion strips and green peppers
  8. Stir around making sure all ingredients are coated and heated evenly. If you need to add a little more Outrageous Orange Sauce, you can do this now.
  9. When the onions are almost translucent turn off heat.
We like our veggies a little crisp so the green peppers were just shy of soft and still had a wonderful crunch to them.

The Lo Mein 

While all of that chicken yumminess was cooking, I boiled spaghetti noodles, and of course I cooked way to much.  Why change?  <Leftovers>
  1. When noodles are done, drain but DO NOT RINSE
  2. Measure out 2 tablespoons of Wildtree's Roasted Garlic GSO into pan and heat until little waves appear.  
  3. Add spaghetti noodles.  This is the easy part since you know how much you have as they are COOKED, you can eyeball servings.  Put the extra noodles that you cooked into a Tupperware container for more Lo Mein later.  
  4. Stir noodles around to make sure they are coated
  5. Add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce over the noodles and stir in. 
  6. I added the leftover onions and green peppers to the pan and cooked until the onions are almost translucent.
  7. I didn't have any bok choy, or cabbage, but I would have added it here just before turning off the heat to serve.
 This will serve 4 good eaters and one small child.
