Chicken & Edamame with Orange-Ginger Dressing

I found this recipe for Chicken & Edamame with Orange-Ginger Dressing and it looked pretty good. I didn’t like the orange-ginger sauce, and I’m not sure if it’s because we accidentally bought a blood orange or because I just don’t like the orange-ginger sauce. Mine was not as pretty as the pictures in the recipe, and I also forgot the cilantro. I would eat this same combination again, but would replace the orange-ginger sauce with something else.


  • 1/4 cup orange juice (squeeze from 1/2 an orange)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp grated peeled fresh ginger
  • Salt
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked as desired and sliced/diced
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1 large red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 small avocado, sliced
  • Small handful of cilantro, chopped, for garnish
  • 1 cup brown rice


  1. Cook brown rice and chicken.
  2. Combine orange juice, lime juice, canola oil, ginger, and salt.
  3. Combine chicken, rice, edamame, and red bell pepper. Toss with orange-ginger dressing.
  4. Pour mixture over rice, add chicken mixture, garnish with cilantro and avocado.
