Gluten-Free Honey Orange Chicken

A while back, I was exposed to gluten and it and messed my whole system up.

I was in pain and nothing sounded good to my stomach except for chicken and rice.

Getting tired of just plain old chicken and rice, I decided to spice things up (just a little) by making this simple and easy Gluten-Free Honey Orange Chicken recipe.

Since then, I have been perfecting this deliciousness and it is now ready for you to try!

I am a sucker for Asian food. Maybe it’s because I don’t eat it often due the fact that soy sauce is lurking around every corner when dining in at Asian restaurants.

However, I have the next best thing to dining in for your favorite Asian dish and that is making it homemade.

By making it homemade, you don’t have to fear for cross-contamination or miscommunication on what you can and can’t eat (you don’t know how many Chefs don’t realize that soy sauce is not gluten-free).

This Gluten-Free Honey Orange Chicken recipe is saucy, tangy, crunchy and delicious. It’s sweet and sour and perfectly safe for celiac and gluten-free foodies!

Not only is it delicious and safe for gluten-free people, but it is also easy to make. Yup, I am staying true to one of my core recipe principles! (What can I say I am a sucker for easy to make food!)

Total Time15 mins
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free
Servings: 4


Chicken and "Breading"

  • 2 lb chicken thighs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour (I used namaste GF flour blend)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper

The Sauce

  • 1 + 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup canned tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • Cube the chicken thighs into bite sized pieces
  • In a frying pan heat up oil on medium-high heat
  • While oil is heating, combine the chicken breading ingredients together in a large bowl
  • Add the chicken pieces to the large bowl and mix well, making sure all of the chicken is coated
  • Once the chicken is coated and the oil in the frying pan is hot, add in the "breaded" chicken
  • Continue heating the chicken until it's fully cooked and the edges are browned and crispy looking
  • While the chicken is cooking, mix together the sauce ingredients in a bowl
  • Once the chicken is cooked completely, add in the sauce and let it simmer for a few minutes until hot
  • Serve over rice and enjoy!


Optional Additions:
◊ Broccoli (add in when you add the sauce to pack in some extra vegetables and bulk up your meal)
◊ Stir-Fry Veggies (add in when you add the sauce to pack in some extra vegetables and bulk up your meal)
