Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 3 TBSP coconut aminos
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 2 TBSP olive or avocado oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken (or turkey)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1-inch piece ginger, grated or minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 TBSP orange zest
  • 1/2 TBSP tapioca starch + 1/4 cup water
  • green onions (for garnishing, optional)


  1. In a small bowl combine orange juice, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos and maple syrup and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat.
  3. Once hot, add ground chicken, salt, ginger, garlic and orange zest and brown the meat, leaving clumps of ground chicken together for some texture if desired.
  4. Once the chicken is fully cooked, lower the heat slightly and add the orange sauce.
  5. Bring to a simmer and then combine tapioca starch and water to make a slurry. Stir slurry into the dish until the sauce begins to thicken.
  6. Remove from heat, garnish with sliced green onions and enjoy!
