Making a good stir fry is a staple at my house! With it being the new year, I have been trying to make favorite recipes lighter by replacing just a few ingredients with ones better for me. A clinical study that showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com. Once I heard about the study, I knew it was time to switch and give it a go in my next stir fry.
Along with subbing in Mazola® Corn Oil to cook the chicken, I decided to make a homemade orange sauce that would be a whole lot better for you than the popular variety made from orange marmalade and barbecue sauce! I would be subbing the both of those ingredients out for freshly squeezed orange juice, honey, and light soy sauce, perfect on not only chicken but broccoli and asparagus too! These 3 substitutions help cut out extra sugar and sodium. This meal is a great way to get more veggies into your diet!
To get everything I needed, I popped over to my local grocery store. Mazola® Corn Oil is available nationwide and is cholesterol free. My favorite part about corn oil is that it is also flavor-free so it doesn’t over power the fabulous meal you are making with it!
