THE RECIPE | Urban Baker Co.

Sweet Orange Ginger Chicken
A perfect alternative to takeout

prep time | 15 minutes 
total time | 35 minutes 
servings | 4 people


Chicken coating:

6 to 8 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces

3 cups gluten free flour

3 eggs

1/2 tsp salt 

pepper to taste

1/4 to 1/2 cup sesame oil

1 head of broccoli

green onions, finely chopped


1 Tbsp sesame oil

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup orange juice

2/3 cup soy sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp ground ginger

pepper to taste


1. Set oven to 450 degrees. 

2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a medium size bowl and set aside.

3. Mix the eggs with salt and pepper.  Dip chicken pieces into the egg mixture and then roll into the flour.

4. Heat the sesame oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat.  Make sure there is enough oil to cover the pan about 1/4 inch.  Place the chicken pieces in the pan browning all sides evenly, about 3 to 5 minutes each side.

5.  Place chicken on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.

6. Place broccoli in steamer until just cooked, but a little crunchy, about 4 to 5 minutes.

7. Remove chicken from the oven.  Place the broccoli on the pan with the chicken.  Pour the marinade over top of the chicken and broccoli and place back into the oven for an additional 5 minutes until the sauce caramelizes.  Serve chicken and broccoli over a bed of brown or white rice with green onions.
