Got a craving for Chinese food but don’t want the guilt?  Try this lighter version of a orange chicken – your taste buds and your body will thank you.

Ingredients for at least 5 servings:

  • 2 lb chicken breast (measured raw)
  • 1/4 cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or coconut aminos, or low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp red pepper garlic sauce
  •  1/4 cup organic, raw honey
  • 2 tbsp sugar free orange marmalade
  • juice from 3 clementines
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch (or arrowroot starch)
  • sesame seeds, green onions
  • spray coconut oil

 

Steps:

  1. In a bowl, mix Bragg’s, rice vinegar, orange juice, orange marmalade, honey, red pepper sauce and tapioca starch. Set aside.
  2. Chop chicken into small pieces.
  3. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and spray with coconut oil.  Add the chicken and cook until it is about 90% finished.
  4. Pour in the orange sauce and stir quickly.  Reduce the heat, allow the sauce to thicken and continue stirring.
  5. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
  6. Serve with brown rice or quinoa.

    Hey Kevin, great work on our site, recipes and articles. You are really helping a lot of people making dieting easier to stick to.

    On this recipe, do the macros include the coconut oil that the chicken is cooked in?

    Thanks,
