Keto Orange Marinade:
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons water
- zest from one orange
- 1/3 cup ChocZero Keto Orange Marmalade
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced
- 2 - 14 oz. bags frozen cauliflower rice

To make the keto orange sauce:
In a medium bowl, mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, water, orange zest, ChocZero Keto Orange Marmalade, and red pepper flakes (optional). Set aside.
To cook the keto orange chicken:
Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until just starting to brown. Add the garlic and ginger to the pan and cook another 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour the keto orange sauce into the skillet with the chicken and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken. If serving with cauliflower rice, now is the time to prepare it.
Once the sauce has thickened, serve the orange chicken over cauliflower rice and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
