Orange Chicken

If like me you love your Chinese takeaway, but hate the bloated feeling after wards.

That’s because nearly all Chinese takeaways/restaurants add MSG

This Chinese recipe has NO MSG (Monosodium glutamate)

Orange Chicken

Orange Chicken

Chinese food, without the MSG.


  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into bite size pieces)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • juice of 2 oranges*
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 3 green onions, chopped


In a medium size sauce pot, add the orange juice, zest, ginger, coconut aminos and chili garlic sauce. set over medium heat and let simmer to reduce and thicken

While the chicken cooks. In a saute pan, heat 3 tbsp of the fat of your choice, over medium high heat. Add the chopped chicken thighs and cook until a nice brown crust has developed on the chicken pieces, about 6 minutes.

Add the chicken to the sauce pot and stir to coat with the orange sauce.

Serve topped with sliced green onions. *Taste your oranges. If they don’t taste orange-y, then neither will this dish. Use tangerines if you gotta or add a teaspoon of sweetener until you’re satisfied with the flavor.
