    I tried this tonight. EXTREMELY flavorful. I think I might try to to straight to the oven next time because I felt the chicken came out too dry, But I agree with a previous poster. The marinade alone was very good. I also had trouble thickening the sauce so I will try some more arrowroot. Thank you for the recipe. This one is going into my rotation!

    this recipe sounds wonderful!!!! is there a way to by pass the first step? meaning to sautee the chicken before baking? I wonder if I could just do the marinade, then after it has marinated pour the rest of the ingredients on top of the chichen and then bake for one hour? any replies? I want to cook this for Xmas dinner for my son and self. Thanks!!!!!

    The marinade smelled so good that I decided the chicken didn’t need the orange sauce at all! It was very flavorful and will definately make again with the marinade alone. Used the orange sauce on a side of broccoli

    This is incredible! We’ve lived in China as English teachers for three years and try to stick to at least an 80% paleo diet. You’re definitely saving us from our cravings of all this amazing Chinese food we’re surrounded by

    This was delicious! The sauce was just perfect! I mostly just tasted a little of it tonight, but tomorrow night I’m having leftover. I also made chicken chunks using the meat from two large bone-in chicken breasts. Tomorrow I’m going to add in some sauteed onion, mushrooms and carrot slivers, and put it on rice. To die for!

    Tamari is gluten-free but it’s not Paleo because it’s still soy. Most will substitute coconut aminos for soy sauce.

      Hi Kate, Thank you for reminding me to add that as an option to the recipe. This was one of my earlier recipes before I discovered Coconut Aminos. I use them for everything now! :)

    This was delicious, I cut up boneless chicken breasts into large chunks and used tapioca flour for thickening that I had on hand and it came out perfect. I will make this the next time we have a large gathering.

      If you go to paleo newbie, then click on entrees, and then the orange chicken, it should come up. I see what you are saying, we have a glitch and will get it corrected. Thanks for letting me know. :)

  3. […] 1. Asian Orange Chicken Try this Paleo-made Asian orange chicken and you’ll be getting real orange flavor from orange zest and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Ginger and garlic give it a spiciness that goes nicely with the citrusy orange, and there’s honey to give it the sweet stickiness it needs to be considered a quality orange chicken offering. The best part about this recipe is that it produces extra sauce which you slather over the chicken, insuring that you’re going to get plenty of flavor in every bite. All Paleo ingredients mean that this is one chicken dish that won’t hinder you. […]
