I was doing my usual Facebook scan the other day and saw a post for orange chicken. I looked at the recipe and thought too bad it’s not Paleo…
Then I thought, wait a minute, I bet I can make it Paleo!
One of my goals with this site is to pass along helpful information and to be a little different. I know many of you new to Paleo miss the foods you were used to eating before. So a big part of my mission is to try and turn some of those favorite foods we all love into healthy and delicious Paleo dishes with all the good stuff, and none of the bad.
Well, the other night I took up the orange chicken challenge. I reworked the original recipe, and also used raw honey. I normally try to limit honey to just the treats on my site, but in this case it was a perfect match and cooked-up beautifully.
This orange chicken dish isn’t something you’d put on the dinner table every night of course, but I guarantee if you serve this one up to your non-Paleo friends, they’ll love it and never know it’s not from a “traditional” cookbook. Just don’t mention the word “Paleo.” After a few bites, they’ll be asking you for the recipe!
We had this orange chicken with stir-fried veggies which was excellent. Broccoli would also make a great side dish. But the real star on the plate is the Paleo orange chicken with its intense flavors. Awesome!
Gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and filled with that authentic orange chicken taste you love!
Enjoy…and let me know what you think!
