Real food sweet and sour chicken recipe

Sweet and Sour Chicken




Yield 4 -6

Sweet and sour chicken with coconut aminos, spices and citrus juices is a real food alternative to this favorite.



  1. Cut the chicken in to bite size pieces. I use kitchen scissors for this.
  2. Place in chicken in a large skillet with butter or coconut oil and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until mostly white. While cooking, add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, turmeric, and paprika.
  3. After the 5-7 minutes when chicken is mostly cooked, add the lemon juice, coconut aminos, fish sauce and apple cider vinegar and cook an additional 4-5 minutes until pieces are cooked in center.
  4. Drain off any extra liquid and return to heat.
  5. Add tomato paste, orange spread, chopped bell pepper, and honey and cook on medium/high for another 3-5 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken and chicken starts to brown slightly.
  6. Remove from heat and serve over cauliflower rice or white rice with sesame seeds and green onions for a garnish.
  7. Enjoy :-)
