This recipe was sent to me by Amy who, like me, was skeptical about how close this recipe could possibly come to real orange chicken. However, we were both floored by the taste and simplicity of it. You can make it in bulk as well in the beginning of the week. The original recipe is from Health-Bent.Com.
I tried this recipe but was lacking a few ingredients so I slightly modified it:
I first blanched the chicken for 3-4 minutes, then finished them by browning them in the oil in a cast iron skillet. While the chicken was cooking, I used a mortar and pestle to grind the zest, pepper flakes, candlenuts, and garlic into a paste. Adding the juice and coconut aminos to the paste, I reduced it until thick in a small saucepan. Pour over chicken when done.
