Orange Vegetable & Chicken Stir Fry

2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, or you can omit for vegetarian version
3/4 - 1 lb green beans, ends cut off and cut into bite sized bits
1 small head of broccoli, with florets cut into bite sized pieces
1 orange, with peel removed (use potato peeler, orange part only) and save the juice
1/2 c cashews
2 yellow or red bell peppers cut into bite sized bits
1/2 c orange marmalade
1/3 c soy sauce or tamari
sesame seeds for garnish
peanut oil or vegetable oil for stir frying
salt, pepper, and garlic powder for taste

Use a wok or big skilled. Heat oil to coat bottom of pan over medium high. Stir fry chicken till done, and dump in separate bowl. Do the same for each of the veggies. When all are done, turn the heat down to medium low, put everything back in the skillet, add orange peel, and coat with orange marmalade and soy sauce, tossing to coat thoroughly. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Start with a little at a time until you like it.

Sprinkle sesame seeds on top - as much as you like and serve over rice. Healthy and yummy! If you want a different flavor use hoison or apricot preserves instead of the orange marmalade.
