This Orange Chicken recipe is safe for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet and counts as 1 meat serving and 1/3* fruit serving while on the low-calorie phase of the HCG Diet.

- 100 grams skinless chicken breast
- 1/3 orange
- 1 1/2 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos**
- 3 drops clear stevia
- 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 clove garlic
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
Make the orange chicken sauce by combining all of the ingredients, except the chicken, into a bowl.
Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces and marinade for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Heat a non-stick pan.
Cook chicken on each side for 3-4 minutes while reserving the marinade.
As the chicken cooks, drizzle marinade onto the chicken pieces.
Remove from heat and serve with your vegetable of choice. I usually opt for cooked cabbage (shown here but grilled onions are good too. Enjoy!
