Orange Chicken


INGREDIENTS: 1 lb chicken tenderloins, cubed

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar free orange juice

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup liquid coconut aminos

1/2 tsp ginger

1 tsp garlic powder

1 bunch green onions, sliced

cajun seasoning

cayenne pepper, to taste

salt & pepper

sesame seeds; optional


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour with cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper.

  2. Coat the chicken pieces well and set aside

  3. In a medium sized skillet, add about 3 tbs olive oil, and heat on medium low.

  4. When the oil shimmers, add the chicken*** and cook for 5 minutes on each side and remove.

  5. While the chicken cooks, whisk together the orange juice, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos, ginger, and garlic.

  6. In the same skillet you cooked the chicken in, pour in the sauce, bring to a boil for 15-20 minutes.

  7. When the sauce is a thick, syrupy consistency, add in the green onions and chicken. Coat the chicken well

  8. Serve hot; topped with sesame seeds if desired.

NOTES:

You may have to cook the chicken in batches. That's ok and be sure to add all of the chicken back into the sauce when its thickened up to warm the chicken back up.
