This Instant Pot Keto Orange Chicken Recipe is incredibly simple and easy to make. It takes less than 20 minutes to whip up, and it’s got all the flavor of “normal” orange chicken, without all the carbs. Plus, you can make this healthy recipe not just in your Instant Pot, but your crockpot too!
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast or thighs (cut into 1-2 inch pieces)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 Orange zested and juiced
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon ginger (grated)
2 Cloves garlic (minced)
¼ Cup (60mL) BRAGGS Liquid Aminos
1/2 Teaspoon red pepper chili flakes (adjust to taste)
1 Tablespoon (9g) Confectioners Swerve
1/2-1 Teaspoon (1-2g) Xanthan Gum
Brown the seasoned chicken in a pan with the sesame oil.
Once the chicken is browned, transfer it to your crockpot, and pour in all of your sauce ingredients except the xanthan gum.
Cover the crockpot and cook for 2-3 hours on low, or around 1 hour on high.
Only add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum if the sauce isn’t as thick as you’d like it to be when the chicken is finished cooking.
