Ground Orange Chicken Bowl

Ground Orange Chicken Bowl

If you love orange chicken like me, you’ll love this healthier version. Unlike takeout orange chicken, this is not fried and the recipe calls for ground chicken instead. This makes for a quick dinner and with big flavors. We serve ours over cauliflower rice for an easy dinner bowl.

Ingredients:

  • Toasted Sesame oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 5 tbsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Bragg’s liquid aminos 
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 2 TBSP liquid coconut aminos
  • Zest of a small orange, juice of half the orange
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger root
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Garnish: Sliced scallion, black sesame seeds
  • Serve with: Cauliflower rice, cooked to package instructions 

Instructions:

  • Heat a little toasted sesame oil to a pan, once hot brown the ground chicken. 
  • Make the sauce and set it aside: Combine ACV, 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil, liquid aminos, water, coconut aminos, zest and juice of half an orange to a bowl.
  • When the chicken is thoroughly cooked add the ginger, garlic and pepper flakes – saute for 3 minutes. 
  • Add the sauce to the pan, bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 6 minutes.
