Paleo Chinese Food - Orange Chicken
Recipe type: Paleo, Protein
: Chinese
Serves: 2
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cubed into approx 1 inch pieces)
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice (the juice of about 2 oranges)
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut aminos (sub with soy sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sriracha
  • 3 scallions chopped (both the white and the green)
  1. In a medium saucepan combine orange juice, ginger, coconut aminos and sriracha, bring to a simmer. Continue simmering until the chicken is done.
  2. In a medium frying pan, melt coconut oil. I originally thought 3 tablespoons would be too much so I started with 1 tablespoon and did end up using the 3.
  3. Continue frying chicken for 7 - 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Once the chicken is done, remove from pan with a slotted spoon and add to the simmering liquid mixture.
  5. Simmer chicken and liquid for 3 - 4 minutes to allow the chicken to absorb the liquid flavors.
  6. Serve on top of your Paleo Faux "Fried Rice" and sprinkle with chopped scallions.
  7. Enjoy!
