Paleo Orange Chicken

This is from Health Bent Paleo Recipes. It's a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet, very flavorful. Next time I would double the size of the recipe.


·         1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into bite size pieces)
·         3 T coconut oil
·         juice and zest of 2 oranges
·         1 t fresh ginger
·         3 T coconut aminos
·         1 t chili garlic sauce or sriracha
·         3 green onions, chopped

In a medium size sauce pot, add the orange juice, zest, ginger, coconut aminos and chili garlic sauce or sriracha. Set over medium heat and let simmer to reduce and thicken while the chicken cooks. In a saute pan, heat 3 T of coconut oil over medium high heat. Add the chopped chicken thighs and cook until a nice brown crust has developed on the chicken pieces, about 6 minutes. Add the chicken to the sauce pot and stir to coat with the orange sauce. Serve topped with sliced green onions.
