Fried & Instant Pot Directions. For the Instant Pot chicken I add the thighs in whole. Yal'L if you don't have an Instant Pot you gotta get one! It was a bit intimidating at first. After burning my hand from the steam ONCE, and ONLY once, I watched a few YouTube videos and was off to the races! Now I LOVE this little one pot wonder!!!
2 tablespoons arrowroot
1 teaspoon Hot Roasted Garlic spice or McCormick Garlic Pepper
4 egg whites, beaten until frothy
1 pound chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
2 teaspoons arrowroot or (corn starch if you tolerate corn ingredients)
1 cup orange juice
Zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos
Just a dash of sesame oil. This can be overpowering so I use sparingly.
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 teaspoons Hot Roasted Garlic seasoning blend (I love Ava Janes Kitchen) or McCormick Garlic Pepper
Grapeseed or Avocado oil, for cooking
Whisk the arrowroot, Hot Roasted Garlic, and egg whites in a large bowl. Add the chicken, toss to coat, and let stand for 10 minutes.
For the sauce, mix the arrowroot with 2 teaspoons cold water until smooth. Set aside.
Add the remaining ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. I did add 1 teaspoon of organic brown sugar but that's optional. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the arrowroot mixture, whisk and simmer for about a minute. Turn off heat.
To cook the chicken, add 2 inches of oil to a heavy, deep skillet. When hot, add the chicken and cook until golden brown, turning when necessary. Remove, drain on paper towels, and continue until all chicken is cooked.
Toss the chicken in the sauce and serve with rice or desired accompaniments.
For rice I add a few teaspoons of butter to pot, add some chopped garlic, teaspoon of turmeric. Add 1 cup rice and brown a few minutes. Add 2 cups of Pacific gfree chicken broth. Bring to boil, turn down and simmer 15 min.
