Teriyaki Chicken and Pasta

This meal was quick to put together, and pretty tasty. I would have preferred fresh sugar snap peas though, since the frozen ones don’t have the texture to deserve to have the word “snap” in the title. Dino wasn’t crazy about the pieces of orange in this one, but that was my favorite part. The crunch from the cashews is really nice on top of this dish.

    This one had to grow on me a little, because the frozen sugar snaps did NOT smell very good while cooking, and they looked unappetizing after soaking up the teriyaki sauce – they were almost black. However, the flavor of this dish was pretty good, and I loved the fresh kick that the orange peel gave it. The pieces of orange were good when it was fresh, but not so much reheated.
