Paleo | Orange Chicken and Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend.  It was sunny, yet chilly here in Littleton, but I am just glad the snow they predicted did not make an appearance! Is it snowing where you are?!

This was not as orangey as I thought it would be, it was a very subtle orange taste.  Next time I am going to add more orange juice and zest!

Ingredients:

Chicken:

  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts, chopped
  • Sea Salt and pepper
  • 4 T. Bacon Fat

Sauce:

  • 1 C. Water
  • 1/2 C. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
  • Zest of a Large Orange
  • 3 T. Coconut Aminos
  • 1/4 C. Honey
  • 1/2 t. Ginger
  • 2 T. Arrowroot Powder

Directions:

  1. Chop your chicken, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, allow the bacon fat to get hot, and then cook chicken until browned.  Once browned, remove excess oil/fat from pan. Note: I did not allow mine to brown, but I wish I would have. 
  3. While chicken is cooking, mix together all sauce ingredients and place in a pan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil, stirring often.  Let this mixture thicken and then remove from heat. Mine took about 10 minutes to start thickening up.
  4. Pour half this sauce mixture over the cooked chicken and save the extra for any sides you make.  I made cauliflower fried rice to go with mine.

Enjoy!
