Introduction: Orange Chicken (Gluten Free) +Bonus Condiment, Dynamite Sauce
This is a decently quick meal that tastes great and reheats like a dream!
Step 1: Ingredients for the Main Dish
2 Cups Rice
2 Cups Coconut Milk (if your can of coconut milk does not equal 2 cups just make up the needed amount in water)
1 Can Bean Sprouts
1 Can Bamboo Shoots
3-5 Chicken Thighs (This is dark meat which doesn't dry out like white meat during the frying.)
If you prefer white meat, than 2-4 chicken breasts should do the trick
Veggies (This is really up to you, we do snow peas, water chestnuts, broccoli, cabbage, green beans....etc.)
Sauce: (Best Part)
1.5 Cups Orange Marmalade (look for the "all natural" kind to stay away from HFCS)
5 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (make sure it's La Choy or similar brand that doesn't use wheat in the sauce)
5 Teaspoons of Sriracha (or more if you like spicy :)
**This amount will be well over what you need but keep in the fridge for anything else that needs a little orange kick!
Step 2: Prepare
Put a small amount of cooking oil in one skillet and start warming up.
While the oil is warming, Trim the Chicken and Cut into bite size pieces
About half way through prepping the chicken, wash your hands and start a larger skillet with all of your fresh (or frozen) veggies. Go back to trimmin :)
After you've started frying the chicken, start the rice.
Prepare as package indicates, we use coconut milk instead of water...or half and half.
Step 3: Orange Sauce...BEST PART
Take the ingredients mentioned on step 1 and whisk together in large measuring cup.
Using the measuring cup will help you calculate the amount of soy sauce and Sriracha you might need to add if you use a jar of orange marmalade that has more or less than 1.5 cups.
To recalculate, here is a small break down;
1/4 cup of orange marmalade + 1 tablespoon soy sauce + 1 teaspoon Sriracha. (I use a little less soy lately and a little more Sriracha)
Step 4: Plate and Eat
After your chicken has reached the proper temp and the rice and veggies are all cooked up nice, plate any way you would like and get the sauce a flowin.
Step 5: Bonus Condiment - Dynamite Sauce - Good Good Good
1/2 Cup REAL Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
1/4 Teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil
Mix the ingredients together, ENJOY
**Great with left over rice from any meal.
