Paleo Chinese Honey Chicken

So as my pregnancy progresses, my blog posts become less frequent. I'm 36 weeks today so you can imagine how unmotivated and tired I am. I can however say with the utmost confidence that a paleo pregnancy is the best pregnancy you are ever going to get! So now onward to the recipe. My hubby loves Chinese food and my boys enjoy it quite a bit too. We do allow the occasional gluten free splurge at Pei Wei, but I know that's not the best option. So here is another recipe to help soothe your Chinese take out cravings.

Paleo Chinese Honey Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
Coconut oil
Salt & pepper

Sauce ingredients
3 tbsp sesame oil (or other nut oil)
2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
9 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1/2 cup water
2 tsp arrowroot mixed with 1.5 tbsp water

In large skillet heat coconut oil. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and set aside. Add sesame oil to skillet. Add ginger and garlic. Sauté 1-2 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients, except arrowroot mixture. Stir and bring to a boil. Add arrowroot mixture and cook until sauce begins to thicken. Add chicken to pan. Toss to coat and warm. Serve and enjoy!!
