Mandarin Orange Chicken

The recipe is one of my friend's and it was so easily adaptable for us, I had to try it.

Mandarin Orange Chicken
4 chicken breasts
2-3 tablespoons canola oil
1 11oz can mandarin oranges in juice, drained with juice reserved
1/4 cup GF soy sauce or Coconut Aminos
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Saute chicken breasts in oil over medium-high to high heat until brown. Mix mandarin orange juice, soy sauce, and cornstarch together, then add in the remaining ingredients, reserving a few Mandarin oranges.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and simmer on low about 30 minutes, turning the chicken occasionally.  Place the reserved oranges on top prior to serving the chicken.  Serve over rice or asian noodles.
