Main Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cleaned + cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 cups steamed broccoli or green beans
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil

Ingredient for Sauce

  • 2.5 cups Orange Juice
  • 1/2 cup ChickhChicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 3 tablespoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper


  • In a large frying pan, cook the cubed chicken in the toasted sesame oil until the edges are brown and slightly crispy (Approx 5-10 minutes)
  • As the chicken is cooking, stir together the sauce mixture in a separate bowl
  • Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked remove it from the pan and place it off to the side in a separate bowl.
  • Pour the sauce mixture into the same pan you cooked the chicken in.
  • Bring the sauce mixture to a boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring every minute or so until it starts to thicken. (You will know it has thickened when you scrape the pan and it pulls away from the pan)
  • When the sauce thickens, add the cooked chicken back in + stir to coat the chicken
  • Serve over steamed broccoli or green beans for a paleo option, or rice/quinoa. 
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds + enjoy!
  • *** If substituting ground ginger for fresh ginger, cut the amount in 1/4 to 1/4 tablespoon.
