chinese food makes me smile
One of my favorite food genres is Chinese food. I wish Keith liked it too. He doesn’t. He tolerates it. He is a good sport though and 99.9% of the time will eat whatever I put in from of him. He’s a smart man. He picks his battles well. So imagine my surprise when he claimed to like this recipe. I was shocked and asked him several times if he was serious. I think he finally got annoyed with my twentieth “you really like it?” I loved it, obviously, but Keith was the real test. So chinese food that is Keith approved is a recipe that must be shared, duplicated and made immediately.
Honey Orange Chicken
4 boneless skinless chicen breats or 8 thighs
1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 green onions, chopped
3 Tbsp. honey
4 Tbsp. orange juice concentrate
1 orange, peeled and segmented
2 Tbsp. wheat-free tamari
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken in a baking dish; set aside.
Heat oil in a small skillet and saute garlic and onions until soft but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add honey, orange juice, orange segments, and soy sauce, stirring evenly until honey is completely dissolved.
Pour sauce over chicken. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, basting once or twice, until chicken is cooked through. Serve over 1/2 cup brown rice and steamed broccoli, then drizzle extra sauce on top! Makes 4 servings.
