I may be slightly biased, but this was seriously effing good!
One of my routines back in the day used to be to watch Sherlock and eat Chinese food (steamed dumplings & wonton soup, woot). As the season 4 finale is tonight (actually watching it as I blog this), I wanted to make something reminiscent of my old Chinese favorites.
I spoke with my Whole30 buddy Randi about the role of routine. How we tell addicts that they need to change their routines and sort of “re-program” themselves. Is it the same for those of us doing the Whole30? Randi thought that finding a healthier version would be okay, but if it left me jonesing for the real deal then I needed to lay off.
Well, this is the only version I’ll be jonesing for from now on!
You Will Need:
- 1 lb. chicken breast
- 2T arrowroot starch + 1t arrowroot starch
- 2-3T coconut oil
- 6 oz. orange juice concentrate
- 1 big squirt (approx. 2T) compliant ketchup
- 2T coconut aminos
- 1t fish sauce
- 1t sea salt
You need to:
- while coconut oil is heating in a pan, cut the chicken breast(s) into approx. 1″ chunks
- coat chunks with arrowroot starch and fry in coconut oil
- while chicken is frying, combine 1t of arrowroot starch and the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat for 10 minutes, allowing sauce to thicken
- once chicken is cooked and crispy on the outside, add the chicken to the saucepan and coat
- serve with broccoli, cauli rice, etc.
This was seriously so good! And the best part – leftovers. Can’t wait to have it again!
