Zesty Orange Chicken – Low Carb Keto Chinese Take Out Recipe

July 20, 2019 25 By William Morgan


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
orange chicken. This delicious sweet and
spicy recipe was inspired by a Twitter
follower who wanted the taste of his
favorite Chinese food takeout without
all the carbohydrates. With less than four net
carbohydrates per serving, this zesty recipe
offers that and more. Let’s get started.
We’ll be using six boneless,
skinless, chicken thighs; three stalks of
green onions; and a half of a green and
red bell pepper. Chop the green onions
and cut the bell peppers into bite-size
pieces. Cut the chicken thighs into
bite-size pieces as well. We’ll marinate
the chicken using a large plastic bag,
For the marinade, add some soy sauce; rice
vinegar; a little sesame oil; some Chinese
five-spice powder; about a tablespoon of
minced garlic; and some red pepper flakes.
Seal the bag and give a quick mix. Add
the chicken to the marinade and give a
mix to be sure that all the chicken is
coated well. Place in the refrigerator
and let the chicken marinate for at
least 1 hour to overnight. Remove the
chicken and strain the liquid. You’ll
notice that the garlic and red pepper
flakes are still with the chicken. We
don’t want to lose that. To a large
skillet on medium-high heat, add the
chicken. While the chicken is cooking
we’ll work on our sauce. Add a tablespoon
of peanut oil to a mixing bowl; add some
ground ginger; about a teaspoon of orange
flavoring; a brown sugar substitute; and
granulated regular sugar substitute as
well. Add about a
cup of rice vinegar; some soy sauce; and a
little bit of water. Gently sprinkle in a
half teaspoon of xanthan gum. Give a
mix to combine and set aside. When the
chicken is just about cooked, add the
peppers and onions. Cook and stir for
about a minute or two. You’ll notice the
chicken has released some moisture; we
don’t want to drain that. It’s loaded
with a lot of flavor and will thicken
when we add the sauce. Pour the sauce
over the chicken and vegetables. Be sure
to get all the sugar out. Continue to
cook and stir. In about five minutes the
sauce will thicken nicely. Add some
steamed riced cauliflower to a plate.
Trust me. You’ll need this to sop up all
the glorious sauce. Spoon the chicken and
peppers over the top. Garnish with some
toasted sesame seeds; and enjoy all the
flavors of your favorite Chinese takeout
without all the carbohydrates. There you have it folks!
