Lots of flavor and color create an appetizing entrée. Pepper flakes add a little kick to orange sauce and tender veggies over rice in this very quick meal from the Test Kitchen.

"I've been making this recipe for years now, only I use fresh vegetables. The taste is soooo much better. The only thing that I add is a little bit of brown sugar. It helps to get the acidity of the orange juice down. Makes for a GREAT combination."
