Directions

1. Prepare the chicken by washing and cutting it into chunks the size you want to eat.

2. In a skillet cook the chicken all the way through in 1 TBSP of olive oil. Then place the chicken on a paper towel-lined plate and place in your oven on low heat to keep it warm.

3. In a large skillet, mix 1 cup of water, orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and Splenda brown sugar. Heat over medium heat. 

4. When the mixture begins to simmer, add the ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, and green onions. 

5. In a small bowl, mix the corn starch with 1 TBSP of water. Add the cornstarch paste mixture to the sauce in the skillet and cook until it starts to thicken and becomes translucent. 

6. Turn the heat down to low. Add the chicken to the sauce. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
