  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional


  • Heat avocado oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken to the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until no longer pink.
  • While chicken is cooking, combine the orange juice, coconut aminos, broth, honey, garlic, and arrowroot powder in a small bowl and whisk well.
