I just blogged about this one - wanted to share it here too! :)

I found this recipe in "The Eat-Clean Diet For Men" book which I recently borrowed from the library! We tried it last night and everyone really liked it! It has a lot of great, fresh ingredients in it and the flavors worked very well together. I left the chicken out of mine and had a few Veggie Patch Chik'n Nuggets diced with mine instead (YUMMY)!

Orange Mango Cashew Chicken - Eat Clean

Ingredients
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
1 cup water
2 cups rice noodles
2 tsp dark sesame oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup raw cashews
2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1 TBS fresh ginger, peeled and minced
zest of one orange
1 mango, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
2 TBS low-sodium soy sauce
1 TBS unpasteurized honey

Directions
Place edamame in a colander and rinse with cool water. Set aside.

Soak rice noodles in cold water till ready to use. Have pot of boiling water on hand to cook noodles for one minute only when ready to serve. Remove from water quickly when done.

Heat sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the chopped onion. Cook gently, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes more, until the onion is translucent.

Add the chicken breast, cashews, orange zest, mango and ginger to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is cooked through.

Stir in chicken broth, soy sauce and honey. Add the thawed edamame and cook for another few minutes, until the edamame is tender. Serve over hot rice noodles.

I changed out a few things based on what I had - we used whole wheat spaghetti instead of rice noodles, and I used ground ginger instead of fresh, and orange peel from a spice jar instead of fresh. Otherwise I followed instructions. There wasn't much "sauce" so if you like things saucy I'd suggest using more chicken broth and mixing it well with 1-2 tsp of cornstarch before adding it to the chicken mixture and allowing it to thicken to desired consistency (and adjusting flavors as needed since you would be diluting it).
