InstaPot Healthy Orange Chicken Recipe
Orange Chicken is a favorite here in my house! It's also a favorite all time Chinese dish. Try this lightened up version which is Paleo-friendly, gluten free, soy free, dairy free and grain free, but definitely not lacking flavor!
4 skinless chicken breasts (approx. 2 pounds)
2T honey (clover honey to make SIBO friendly)
5T organic tomato paste
1/3 cup coconut aminos
3 large oranges (juiced)
1 tablespoon of orange zest
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon garlic oil
1 teas ground ginger
1/2-1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish, optional
1 tablespoon of green onions for garnish, optional (green parts only for SIBO friendly)
Trim chicken if any visible fat then place in instapot
Add juiced oranges, zest, coconut aminos, sesame oil, garlic oil, ground ginger, tomato paste, red pepper flakes and honey in a bowl and whisk
Pour on top of chicken in instapot and cover evenly
Press instapot Meat/Stew button time should be at 12 minutes
Once finished let instapot release pressure, remove chicken and cut on a vertical to slice in to chucks and add back to sauce.
Serve over zucchini noodles, butternut squash noodles, broccoli or like in my photo what I had on hand was zucchini that I roasted in the oven.
