Crock Pot Sesame Orange Chicken
I got a new paleo cookbook and I love it. It's called Against all Grain and it has some great paleo recipes in it. It has the best dessert section that I have ever seen in a paleo cookbook. If you are cooking paleo, I highly suggest getting it. This recipe is from Against all Grain, I did change a few things like the original recipe calls for boneless skinless thighs, but all I have are the breasts!
I've had a lot of questions about coconut aminos. If you don't have access to buying them locally (like me), or don't know what they are, I have added a link on the side bar of my website where you can buy some. I cook with coconut aminos all of the time. You would use it in a recipe to sub soy sauce, or I even use it when marinating any kind of meat. Hope that helps.
To make the chicken:
2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/3 cup coconut aminos
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Garnish- sesame seeds
1. Place chicken breast in crock pot
2. In a small bowl mix coconut aminos, honey, orange juice, tomato paste, sesame oil, garlic, sea salt, and pepper
3. Pour sauce over chicken and cook in crockpot on low for 4 hours.
4. Once finished cooking remove chicken from pot and cut into cubes
5. Remove sauce from pot and place in a saucepan over medium heat. Let simmer for 20 minutes until it has reduced by half and is thick and shiny.
6. Toss cubed chicken in thickened sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
7. Serve over cauliflower rice.
