This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you “Mandarin Chicken with Cinnamon Carb-Zero.” I really can’t get over how many delicious recipes the Paleo Indulgences cookbook has in it…. I mean really, we are cookin’ up a storm over here and everything this cookbook gives us puts out such tasty meals!! Tonight’s dish is Mandarin Chicken, and we are using some great ingredients to put this one together. Some are from our trusty Julian Bakery, where we pick up our Paleo Bread, and even the tasty and zero net carb Cinnamon Carb-Zero. Plus we love all of those high quality items that they also offer on their website, like the Coconut Secret – Coconut Aminos which we incorporated into this meal… It is a great replacement for soy sauce, has a similar taste to it as well, and yet packs a nutritional punch with amino acids, vitamins and nutrients that soy doesn’t hold a candle to. Now do you see why we roll with Julian Bakery? They offer the highest quality items that have tons of nutrition because they genuinely care for us health conscious consumers. They are the best one-stop-shop around for us to click away and easily purchase great organic items, located in La Jolla and Oceanside, California, as well as at www.JulianBakery.com/Paleo
Ingredients – for the sauce:
• ½ cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
• zest of 1 orange
• 2 tablespoons Coconut Secret – Coconut Aminos
• 1 tablespoon walnut or olive oil
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tablespoon raw honey (we also suggest Coconut Secret – Coconut Nectar)
• ¼ teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
Ingredients – for the chicken:
• 1 tablespoon coconut oil
• 2 lbs chicken
• Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
• ½ teaspoon granulated onion
• 1 slice Cinnamon Carb-Zero bread
1) Place the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, mix, and set aside
2) Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat
3) Place the chicken in a medium bowl and season lightly with salt, pepper, and the granulated onion.
4) Add the chicken to the hot skillet. Let it brown on all sides, stirring only occasionally, until almost done, about 5 minutes.
5) Add the sauce to the skillet, stirring up the yummy bits from the bottom of the pain as it bubbles. Turn the heat to medium and simmer the sauce, uncovered, about 5 more minutes, or until the sauce has thickened a bit and really sticks to the chicken.
6) Cook Cinnamon Carb-Zero bread in toaster oven to your liking.
7) Serve Mandarin Chicken with Cinnamon Carb-Zero and enjoy!

Oh yeah, this was the closest that I’ve come to eating Chinese food in ages, yet no MSG, no soy, none of the stuff that we’ve been trying to avoid to maintain good health. Thanks to Julian Bakery we are able to recreate meals with a lot of their products, and thanks to some awesome cookbooks that they offer. Paleo Indulgences is no exception, filled with great, homemade recipes that will amaze you and your loved ones. And with a side of Cinnamon Carb-Zero, I thought that would go well with that awesome orange flavored chicken.

Tasty breads to satisfy just about anyone, great ingredients that are made from the healthiest stuff around, along with supplements, cookbooks, and my favorite – Paleo Macaroons!
