I'm not sure how many of you enjoy the Crispy Orange chicken bowl recipe from AppleBee's, but back in my college days, that was one of my favorite things to order (and probably also a contributor to the 30 lbs I put on in my college days). Did you know it has a whopping 1,520 calories and 2,520 grams of sodium?! (As if the calorie amount wasn't bad enough).
So here's a more healthy alternative you can whip up at home---give it a try!
Preheat oven to broil. Mix honey, orange juice, cumin, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken breasts in cumin mixture. Broil chicken for 4 minutes. Turn chicken over and brush on more of the cumin mixture. Broil until done, approximately 4 more minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
