Jerk seasoning and orange juice spice up this easy chicken dish that's ready in 20 minutes.

Ingredients

1
lb boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
2
teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
1
package (1 lb) frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry
1/3
cup orange juice
2
teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

  • 1 Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken and jerk seasoning; cook and stir 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  • 2 Add bell pepper and onion stir-fry; cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine orange juice and cornstarch; blend until smooth. Add to mixture in skillet; cook and stir until bubbly and thickened.
Tips  

Bell peppers, regardless of their color, provide vitamin C also called ascorbic acid. Choosing vitamin C-rish foods keeps gums and blood vessels healthy.

Caribbean jerk seasoning, sold in the supermarket spice aisle, is a blend that usually contains red pepper, thyme and allspice; it sometimes includes sugar and other spices.
