Orange Chicken

The kids don't help me plan meals and then won't eat what I make.  Finally, something they like!

Totally ripped off from Health Bent, thanks Brandon & Megan.  I think you'll like their Paleo Orange Chicken, too.

  • 1lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I use Rosie organic, free range), cut into bite size pieces
  • 3T coconut oil
  • juice of 2 oranges - taste them, if they aren't sweet & orangey, neither will your final dish, trust me
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 1 t fresh ginger
  • 3T tamari (wheat-free soy sauce)
  • 1t chili garlic sauce or sriracha
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  1. In a saucepan add orange juice, zest, ginger, tamari, chili sauce.  Cook over medium heat until it boils.  Reduce to a simmer until thickened.
  2. In a large skillet heat coconut oil and add chicken pieces.  Cook until chicken has a nice, brown crust.
  3. Add chicken to sauce and stir to coat.
  4. Serve topped with green onions.
