Orange Chicken

Gluten & Dairy Free Serves 6

  • 4 Cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 6 Dried Peppers Whole Red Chilies
  • 1 ½ lbs Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs Cut Into ½ Inch Cubes
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 Tbsp Chopped Green Onion
  • 1 tsp Whole Earth Stevia Monk Fruit Sugar
  • ½ Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Cup Cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Pinch Pink Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Chicken Broth
  • 1 Clove Garlic Minced
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Amino Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
  • 1 tsp Orange Zest
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch

Directions:

Heat 4 cups of oil in a large saucepan to 375 degrees. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl large enough to hold the chicken pieces. Add the chicken cubes, add salt, whole earth sugar, and pepper. Mix cubes well, slowly add in 1 cup of cornstarch stirring as you add making sure you coat the chicken as evenly as possible. Fry the chicken in small batches to avoid uneven cooking times. Cook the chicken until  they turn golden brown and begin to float (about 3 minutes). Remove chicken from the fryer and place on a wire rack to drain and cool.

Once all chicken has been cooked fry chicken a second time starting with the first batch until a deep golden brown has been reached and placed back onto the draining rack. While chicken is cooling, heat 2 Tbsp oil in a wok or large skillet. Stir in onion, garlic, chiles, and zest. Cook for 1-2 minutes until garlic turns golden stirring while cooking to avoid burning. Add in sugar, ginger, broth, vinegar, aminos, and oils. Bring sauce to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Dissolve 2 tsp cornstarch into water and add into sauce. Return sauce to a boil and allow to thicken for 1 minute. Lastly, stir in chicken and coat evenly. Serve with rice and enjoy!
