Food Matters Project- Soy Orange Honey Chicken

Food Matters Project

I started participating in the Food Matters Project and this week’s assignment was Beef with Soy and Orange Sauce and bean sprouts. My husband was so clever and helpful (for that I love you even more) and went to the library to get me the book. It was the best idea ever because Calgary casted a snow storm warning with 10-30cm of snow. Means I would not be able to go to the grocery store to buy the required ingredients.


This weeks host is Dominica so check out her website Wine Food Love for the original recipe. I could not help myself and made changes to it because I already had left overs in my fridge I wanted to use before they expire. Instead of beef I took the roasted chicken I made earlier. Here is what I did:

Roasted chicken- cut in pieces

Juice of 2 tangelos

3 tbsp of dark soy sauce

1 tbsp orange blossom honey

Black sesame seeds roasted


Shredded cabbage

Garlic sprouts


It is very easy. Put it all in a pan and cook until the sauce reduces to the consistency you like. Dress up a plate with arugula and shredded cabbage, add the chicken and sauce. Top with the roasted seeds and a bit of the garlic sprouts. Enjoy!


Ohhh, he loved it and suggested we could have it with rice again tonight. Haha. SInce it is so easy to make, we WILL have it for dinner again.

Saft von 2 Mandarinen

Das Gericht ist so einfach. Alles in einer Pfanne erhitzen und die Sosse solange koecheln lassen bis die Sosse etwas angedickt ist. Das Huhn auf ein Bett von Arugula und Kohl legen und reinhauen 🙂


Haha, er meinte, man koennte es doch auch mit Reis essen. Zu schade, dass wir bereits alles aufgegessen haben *zwinker zwinker*. Es gibt es also noch einmal heute abend.

    I was going to use tangelos too but was not brave enough! Love how you ate this over some arugula. Yum!

      It was quite by accident because I thought I bought oranges…uhm… 🙂 The peppery taste of the arugula goes extremely well with the soy sauce. Glad you liked it.

    Mmmh, soy and orange a good combo 🙂 I did a similar dish a bit back with scampi and black soba noodles. My kitchen filled with the delish fragrance which remided me of orange chocolate.
    Hope everything goes well with all the snow heading your way. Take care.

      Thanks, the snow arrived on time 😦 ankle deep snow means I am trapped inside for today. Ohh I like soba noodles but never heard of black ones. Interesting.

    Nice – great twist serving it on top of raw greens!

    seeing the changes people have made is one of the most fun parts in my opinion! Looks delicious!
