Serves 4

Total Time 15 min.


  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 10-ounce b shredded or julienne-cut carrots
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk orange juice, broth and cornstarch in a small bowl. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the carrots are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
