Orange Sriracha Chicken

Ingredients

For the orange sriracha glaze
  • 2 c orange juice
  • ½ c coconut aminos
  • ¼ c sriracha
  • 1 heaping tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp fish sauce
  • zest of ½ an orange (about ½ tbsp of zest)
For the chicken
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 c unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ c almond flour
  • pinch of salt

Optional

  • cauliflower rice or white rice
  • cilantro
  • sliced radishes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a rack on to. Spray rack to grease and set aside.
  2. Place a large saute pan over medium heat and add all ingredients for the orange sriracha glaze. Whisk to combine.
  3. Bring to a low boil and let reduce for about 20-25 minutes. It will reduce by about 1/3 and should coat the back of a spoon, that’s how you know the sauce is ready. If still runny like water, let it cook longer. When the sauce is done cooking, remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Whisk an egg in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, whisk together shredded coconut, almond flour and salt. Coat each piece of chicken in the egg then into the almond flour mixture then place on the greased baking sheet rack. Repeat until all chicken is coated and on the rack.
  5. Place chicken in the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes, then turn heat up to broiler and cook for 3-4 more minutes until crispy.
  6. Options for serving – build a chicken bowl as desired: cauliflower rice, chicken, glaze on top then garnish with cilantro and radishes; pour glaze over chicken and serve with preferred sides; use glaze as a dipping sauce for chicken and serve with any sides.

Wellness Wednesday – Protein Snob!

wheysted

All day, every day!!  We’ve become protein snobs, and it’s for the best!  Let me explain…

UCLA did a study that measured the nutrients found in a bowl of spinach grown on the same plot of land in 1997 and 1953.  They found it would take a staggering 43 bowls of spinach in 1997 to get the same amount of iron and nutrients the spinach had in ONE bowl in 1953 !

A simple google search will reveal that nutrient levels in our produce are declining at an alarming rate.  Even if you are eating whole foods (which we strongly encourage), it simply no longer contains the nutrition it once did!

That’s why we’ve become protein snobs!!  Our yummy superfood shakes provide our bodies with optimal nutrition, easy and convenient, so it can perform how it was designed to!  Each shake is perfectly balanced with 24-36g of undenatured whey protein, 7 live digestive enzymes, plant-based sugars and complex carbs – as well as a complete amino acid profile with 23 trace minerals and vitamins.

There are no stimulants or artificial sweeteners in any of our products! No corn, soy or fake colors. It’s CLEAN food that EXCEEDS USDA organic standards! And it’s delicious! We’ve been putting this super food in our bodies for over 14 months and can’t imagine where our health would be without it.

Research and clinical studies suggest that the maximum nutrition in our shakes paired with the power of intermittent fasting is producing incredible, lasting results!  And that is something we are PROUD to stand behind, feel good about putting in our bodies, and love sharing with others!

Roughly 4% of your day is spent at the gym.  What you’re consuming the other 96% of the day plays a much larger role in your health and wellness.  Remember, you can’t out train a poor diet, it’s 80% nutrition/20% working out.

Are you a protein snob??  Come chat with Coaches Brandon or Michelle ASAP, send us an email {info@pinevillecrossfit.com} or send us a message on FB…our inbox is always open!  We’re here to offer as much support as desired for each of our athletes, so let’s chat nutrition sometime soon!
