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!)

Gluten-Free Honey Orange Chicken

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
  1. Cube the chicken thighs into bite sized pieces
  2. In a frying pan heat up oil on medium-high heat
  3. While oil is heating, combine the chicken breading ingredients together in a large bowl
  4. Add the chicken pieces to the large bowl and mix well, making sure all of the chicken is coated
  5. Once the chicken is coated and the oil in the frying pan is hot, add in the “breaded” chicken
  6. Continue heating the chicken until it’s fully cooked and the edges are browned and crispy looking
  7. While the chicken is cooking, mix together the sauce ingredients in a bowl
  8. Once the chicken is cooked completely, add in the sauce and let it simmer for a few minutes until hot
  9. 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)
