Healthy Gluten-Free Orange Chicken

This 30-minute gluten-free Orange Chicken and broccoli rice is the ultimate “fakeout” meal you can feel good about since it’s low-carb, Paleo, AIP, and Whole30-friendly!

Easy to make and absolutely delicious!! I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn’t change a thing.  It is my new favorite go-to recipe as I usually have all the ingredients on hand.  The broccoli rice was an unexpected surprise and equally tasty. VON

Ingredients ORANGE SAUCE – 1/2 cup fresh orange juice – 1 tbsp fresh orange zest – 1 tsp raw honey (omit for Whole30) – 2 tbsp coconut aminos – 2 garlic cloves minced – 1/2 tsp arrowroot flour/powder

 To a separate mixing bowl, combine chicken pieces, arrowroot, baking soda, sea salt, and garlic powder. Mix well until the chicken pieces are coated evenly and set aside.
