Yields 2 servings

Ingredients:

1 Orange
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
2 tbsp raw honey
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup water
1/2-1 tbsp arrowroot powder
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 egg white
1 chicken breast
salt + pepper
2/3 cup oil of choice

Directions for Chicken

Crack 1 egg white into a bowl. In a separate bowl add 1/2 cup coconut flour and season with salt+ pepper. Heat oil on medium-high. Dice chicken breast and dip each side of each piece in the egg white, then in the flour mixture. When the oil is hot place the chicken in the oil gently and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes (until golden brown).

Directions for sauce

Zest one orange and then juice into a saucepan. Get as much juice out as you can. Add the 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp crushed garlic, 2 tbsp honey, 1/2 tsp grated ginger, and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. Cook on high for a few minutes. Once the chicken is ready to go in the sauce, slowly stir in arrowroot powder until desired thickness. I used about 3/4 tbsp of arrowroot powder. Lastly add the chicken into the saucepan and stir with the sauce. Serve over brown rice or veggies!
