With fresh mozzarella, creamy balsamic dressing and grilled chicken, this delicious open faced orange chicken sandwich is the perfect healthy meal.
Our first recipe featuring oranges is finally here! We planned to highlight this awesome food all month, but got a bit busy with our jobs. We already have made and eaten these tasty recipes, and we cannot wait to show them to you! With fresh mozzarella, creamy balsamic dressing and grilled chicken, this delicious open faced orange chicken sandwich is the perfect healthy meal. We loved the addition of oranges on this tasty sandwich and the zest of the creamy balsamic. We also loved how this sandwich meets all of the goals of our blog for this year.
This year, our blog will stand for:
- Healthy Food – We want to celebrate fresh, whole ingredients and show our readers how accessible and good for you each of our selected fruits and vegetables really are.
- Quick and Easy Meals – This is something we always strive for but will be highlighting this even more this year. We want to make family friendly and delicious meals that take little effort and little time. In order to achieve this, our recipes will have simple steps and helpful shortcuts.
- Using the Same Ingredients in Different Ways – This is our favorite, money saving shortcut! When we repeat the same ingredients throughout the week, we have less food waste, we have fewer grocery bags to make many meals, and of course, we save some major money! Showing you different meals we can make with repeat ingredients in one week, is our very favorite shortcut!
For last month’s featured fruit and vegetable, we chose oranges and beets. To see our beet recipes, you can click here and here! To see why we decided to put oranges on our tasty Open Faced Orange Chicken Sandwich, check out our list below.
Packed with Nutrients – Oranges have numerous healthy nutrients including vitamin C, fiber, thiamine, folate and potassium. With the intake of one orange, you can get 100% of the Vitamin C needed for the day.
Immunity Support – Taking vitamin C has been suggested to prevent and fight colds. Since one orange has the amount of Vitamin C needed for the day, an orange is a valuable way of fighting off colds.
Anti-Cancer – It has been found that one orange a day can lower the chances of getting mouth, larynx and stomach cancers up to 50%. This has been found due to the antioxidants in each orange.
