Paleo Easy Dinner Recipe – Perfect Paleo Orange Chicken

For this Paleo easy dinner recipe, you can use chicken breast or thighs (or a combination) to make this dish, as you prefer.

Along with the chicken we are using honey, coconut aminos, orange, ginger and red pepper, along with arrowroot for thickening.

This tasty Chinese dish is gorgeous served over cauliflower rice (grated cauliflower sautéed until tender) or mixed steamed vegetables.

Consider snow peas, carrot, water chestnuts and onions.

This Paleo easy dinner recipe is best when you use fresh orange zest and juice, just so you can expect a fresher flavor.

If you’re going to serve this with cauli-rice, stir a handful of chopped green onion, a splash of coconut aminos and a raw egg into it while it’s on the stove. When the egg sets it’s done and you have your own paleo version of egg fried rice to pair with this delicious dish.
