  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ½ cup Nourishing Vegetable Broth, page 178 in the book, or low-FODMAP chicken broth
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cups broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cups sliced peeled carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions, green parts only
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cooked through and browned. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a small saucepan, stir together the broth, orange zest and juice, sugar, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened slightly.
  3. Pour the mixture over the chicken in the skillet. Mix well to coat.
  4. In a medium pot, combine the broccoli, carrots, and about '/ cup water. Place over medium-high heat, and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. Divide among 4 bowls, and top with the chicken, scallions, and sesame seeds.


  • To save time, use baby carrots and a bag of prewashed broccoli heads.
  • Trim off and discard the broccoli stems; use mostly broccoli heads, as the stems are higher in FODMAPs.
