You will need…
- – 1 1/2 cups Orange juice, freshly squeezed
- – 2 tsp Rice vinegar
- – 1/4 cup honey
- – 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
- – 2 tsp minced garlic
- – 1 tsp minced ginger
- – 1/2 tsp red pepper chili flakes
- – 1 tsp orange zest
- – 1/4 tsp pepper
- – 1 tbsp olive oil
- – 1 lb chicken breast or thighs, cubed OR sub cauliflower for a plant-based option
- – 1 tbsp cornstarch
- – 1 tbsp water
- – 2 tbsp Purality Health Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C
- – Green onion, sesame seeds, hot sauce, etc for garnish
All you have to do is…
Step 1: Make Your Sauce
Add orange juice, rice vinegar, honey, soy sauce or coconut aminos, minced garlic, minced ginger, red pepper flakes, orange zest, and pepper to a bowl. Mix to combine.
Step 2: Cook the Chicken/Cauliflower
Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add cubes of chicken (breast or thigh, whatever is preferred) or cauliflower to the pan, and cook for about 5-7 minutes. Add the sauce to the pan, and allow it to simmer in the sauce for an additional 10-15 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken or cauliflower pieces – thicker pieces may need longer to cook, while smaller pieces may need less).
Step 3: Add the Cornstarch Slurry
Mix 1 tbsp water and 1 tbsp cornstarch in a small bowl. Make sure to mix well and get rid of any lumps. Add the slurry to the pan of chicken and orange sauce, and stir to combine.
Step 4: Garnish!
Once the sauce has thickened, it is ready to serve! Take the mixture off the heat, and allow to cool for a few minutes before stirring in a few tablespoons of Purality Health Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C. Serve over rice, or on its own. Garnish with sliced green onions, sesame seeds, or a few dashes of hot sauce. Enjoy!
