5 tablespoons Sunny Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves plus additional for garnish
1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
¼ teaspoon dried chipotle pepper (or other dried red chile pepper), seeded and chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-inch strips
2 red, yellow and/or orange bell peppers, sliced
1 small jalapeño pepper, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup Mandarin orange segments in syrup, drained
3 cups cooked Sunny Select Instant Brown Rice
Lime wedges for garnish (optional)

Preparation

Prep: 25 minutes plus marinating
Cook: 10 minutes • Serves: 4

1. In small bowl, whisk together garlic, 4 tablespoons oil, lime juice, cilantro, coriander, dried pepper, salt and black pepper. Place chicken in large zip-top plastic bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate 1 hour to marinate. 

2. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Heat large skillet or wok over high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and chicken, and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bell peppers and jalapeño, and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Stir in green onions and cook 1 minute, stirring. Add orange segments and cook just until chicken loses its pink color throughout and internal temperature reaches 165°, stirring occasionally. 

3. Serve stir-fry over brown rice garnished with cilantro and lime wedges, if desired.
