Paleo Orange Chicken


Ingredients:- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken  thighs or breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- Sea salt
- Ground black pepper
- 4 Tbsp.olive oil or coconut oil

SAUCE
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- Zest of 1 large orange
- 3 Tbsp. raw honey
- 3 Tbsp. coconut aminos
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- Dash red pepper flakes
- 2 Tbsp. arrowroot starch/flour

Directions:
1. Season chopped chicken pieces with sea salt and pepper. Set aside.
2. To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium size saucepan and stir to combine. Place over medium high heat and bring just to a boil, stirring frequently. Allow sauce to thicken and then remove from heat and set aside.
3. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and allow to get hot. Add the chicken pieces and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until nicely browned. Drain any excess fat from the pan and pour half the sauce into the skillet. Stir to coat the chicken in the sauce, remove from heat and serve. Pour the extra sauce over a side of steamed vegetables, brown rice (gluten free but not necessarily paleo) or make some caulifower rice!

HERE is a "normal" recipe for Orange chicken just swap out the soy sauce for coconut aminos, coconut oil instead of the regular oil, and replace cornstarch with tapioca starch.
