Healthy Mandarin Chicken



Mandarin Chicken Ingredients:

■1 pound of boneless skinless chicken thighs (or chicken breast but thighs are used in restaurant versions)
■1 cup of coconut oil, tallow or lard for cooking
■1/2 cup almond flour
■1/4 cup arrowroot powder
■1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder
■1/2 teaspoon ginger powder (optional)
■2 eggs
■1 tablespoon water
■3 organic oranges (organic is important since you’ll use the zest and juice)
■1 organic lemon (organic important!)
■1/4 cup naturally fermented soy sauce or coconut aminos
■1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce (optional but good)- You can also just add a teaspoon of garlic powder but the texture and flavor isn’t quite as good.
■1/4 cup honey (optional, adds sweetness and thickness)
■1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

How to Make Mandarin Chicken:

Cut chicken thighs into bite sized pieces with a sharp knife or kitchen shears. Mix the almond flour, arrowroot, salt, pepper, garlic powder and ginger in a bowl. Beat the egg with water in another bowl.[ Note:You can completely skip the flour and egg steps if you don't want to bread the chicken and can just stir fry the bite-sized pieces of chicken in 2 tablespoons coconut oil until cooked.]

Heat the coconut oil, tallow or lard in a large skillet. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, then into the flour mixture and shake to remove excess flour. Carefully drop the breaded chicken pieces into the hot oil, cooking about 3-5 minutes per side until cooked through. Do not stir or move chicken except to flip once during cooking as it can remove the breading. Carefully remove and place on a plate to cool. Repeat with all the chicken until cooked. (alternately, you can bread the chicken this way and place on a well oiled baking sheet or baking dish and bake at least 30 minutes or until cooked through in the oven).

While chicken is cooking and cooling, zest the oranges and lemon into a medium sized pan. Squeeze the juice of the oranges and lemon into the pan and add the soy sauce/coconut aminos, chili garlic sauce and honey. Stir well and slowly add the tablespoon or arrowroot powder. Bring to a simmer and continue simmering over medium/low heat for 15-20 minutes or until desired thickness. Do not let boil or burn! If you want a thicker sauce, add a little more arrowroot.

If you are serving with cauliflower rice (can use this one without the shrimp) or steamed broccoli, cook it while sauce is thickening. When all are done, pour the sauce over the chicken and lightly toss to incorporate.

Thanks ash. Yes its hard work but worth it once everything starts to ripen. As far as the borers go that's something you have to check on everyday. Pick them off by hand and squish them. I have tried all sorts of herbicides on them and the only thing that really seems to work is killing them the old fashioned way.

thanks for the tip, i'll remember to do that next year. my mom really into gardening so she has been giving me advice and she has never had borers before so she didn't know what the problem was. by the time i googled it, it was too late. i sliced open some of the vines and there were tons of them inside! nasty little things, lol

Btw Ash, I know its a little late now but if those bugs return next year make sure you pull your plants up by the roots and burn them. That will keep you from having so many of them the next year.
