I wanted to make something with chicken and veggies. I also wanted to use a new vinegar I recently purchased. I haven’t had a chance to use it yet. My 4 year old really wanted pasta. This creation came from those three factors. I then started thinking about how gorgeous all the blood oranges I bought are. I am just in love with their color. They are truly beautiful.


Blood Orange Chicken

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into pieces
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 blood oranges. One juiced. One cut into pieces and set aside.
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 Tbsp O Ginger Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 3 small carrots, julienned
  • 1 zucchini, julienned
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)

Heat the coconut oil in a large pan. Add the minced garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the chicken pieces, blood orange juice, lime juice, ginger rice vinegar, coriander, sea salt, and pepper. Cook chicken through. Add the honey and blood orange pieces. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the carrots and zucchini. Cook until the veggies are tender but still bright.

I served it over whole wheat spaghetti, but brown rice would be another great option. You can also sprinkle a little red pepper flakes over your bowl if you wanted a little kick.
