  • 1 lb Chicken Breast boneless, skinless, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ½ Tsp Garlic Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Chili Flakes
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil divided
  • 1 inch Ginger thumb size, fresh, chopped
  • 1 Large Bell Pepper chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Purple Onion chopped
  • Cup Fresh Orange Juice
  • ¼ Cup Low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 Tsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Sliced Scallions or green onions
  • Orange slices to garnish optional


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chicken, and sprinkle with garlic powder, chili flakes sea salt and pepper.
  • Cook stirring occasionally, until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, then set aside on a plate
  • In the same skillet add the remaining oil, and stir fry the ginger, bell pepper and onion, for 2-3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk orange juice, soy sauce, and cornstarch. Pour the sauce over the stir-fried veggies and stir to combine and deglaze all those delicious brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and cover with the sauce, cooking for a few more minutes until everything is heated up.
  • Garnish with sliced scallions, sesame seeds, and orange slices. Enjoy!



  • Consider using shrimp in place of chicken
  • Tapioca or arrowroot flour in place of cornstarch
  • Avocado oil in place of olive oil
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. You can freeze for up to 3 months.
