Orange Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

Almost forgot to take a picture of this… and it was soooo good and amazingly easy to make. ๐Ÿ™‚ Won’t waste your time with much chatter. Here’s the recipe.

1.5 lbs chicken breast (cut up)
2 to 3 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp coconut oil
zest of two oranges
juice of half an orange
1 sweet potato


In a small pot melt coconut oil, and add honey. Bring to a rolling boil, add the orange zest. Let this sit on low heat for a few minutes. In the meantime heat another pan to high heat and throw in the chicken (imagine a stir fry). Toss the chicken around and brown it nicely from all sides. Now add a sweet potato, cut into small pieces, and cook for a couple more minutes, then turn heat to medium.

Pour your honey mix into the meat and cook this for a good 10 minutes. If you’re busy preparing sides, turn heat to low, put a lid on the whole thing and let it do its thing. At some point you’ll want to add the orange juice.

This tastes delicious with steamed broccoli. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!!
