Peanut Sesame Chicken

From Classic Chinese recipes

2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
8 oz. broccoli, divided into small florets
8 oz. baby corn cobs
1 small red pepper, seeded and sliced
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 c. orange juice
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
1/2 c. roasted unsalted peanuts
Rice or noodles to serve

Heat the oils in a large skilled; add the chicken strips and stir fry for about 4-5 minutes, until browned.  Add the broccoli, corn cobs, and red pepper, and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes more. 

Meanwhile, mix together the soy sauce, orange juice and cornstarch.  Stir into the chicken and vegetable mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened slightly and a glaze has developed.

Stir in the sesame seeds and peanuts, mixing well.  Heat for a further 3-4 minutes and serve at once with rice or noodles.
