Cashew Chicken

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch strips
1/4 cup orange juice
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 green onions — chopped
1 large carrot — sliced
1/2 celery stalk — sliced
1/2 cup cashews
3 cups brown rice — cooked

In a bowl, combine juice, soy sauce, honey, cornstarch and seasonings. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil until it begins to smoke. Stir-fry vegetables for several minutes until the onions become fragrant. Set aside.

Remove from skillet and heat another tablespoon of oil until smoking and stir-fry chicken strips until browned and tender. Add cooked vegetables, cashews and sauce mixture. Continue cooking until sauce bubbles and thickens. Serve over brown rice.
