Orange-Ginger Chicken and Veggies

This colorful stir-fry is chock-full of tasty veggies, tender chicken chunks and a light, zippy sauce. Tangy oranges and crunchy cashews add extra pizzazz. "The recipe was an experiment," shares Nancy Johnson of Turah, Montana. "We love Asian food, and this dish filled the bill nicely."

    Delicious although I did not use the orange and the chili sauce. I omitted the orange...just didn't appeal to me and I used Thai Chili Paste instead of the chili sauce...and use 6 ounces of pork tenderloin instead of the chicken...it was delicious.
