  • 1 tsp. Sesame Oil

Whole30 General Tso’s Chicken

Whole30 General Tso’s Chicken
On today’s episode of recreating my childhood favorites… Whole30 General Tso’s Chicken! Dare I say it, but this may be up there as one of my favorite dinners that I’ve made! Bold statement, but I stand by it. So many of my sleepovers with friends and grabbing a quick dinner with my family involved ordering our favorite takeout and eating them out of those little white containers. It just tasted best that way, don’t you agree?! I grew up loving General Tso’s Chicken, but as someone that can’t have gluten and needs to watch their sugar intake in order to feel their best, the traditional takeout version was no longer an option for me. It also was not an option for me to never have one of my most loved meals ever again, so I decided to create my own recipe that I could enjoy, even when on Whole30! This dish is Whole30 friendly, but if you’re craving a little extra sweetness, you can add some honey for a natural sweetener option. I have made it both ways, and don’t even miss the honey while I’m eating Whole30 or watching my sugar intake! It also pairs perfectly with fresh, steamed broccoli. The extra sauce on the veggie is a match made in heaven.

Instant Pot General Tso's Chicken (Paleo with Whole30 option)

Provided by: Taylor
Total time: 13 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Cuisine: Chinese,paleo,Whole30
Number of ingredients: 11
Ingredients:
  • 1.5 lb Chicken breast/thighs (chopped into 1"-2" chunks)
  • 1/3 cup Coconut aminos
  • 1/3 cup Broth (I used bone broth! )
  • 1/4 cup Raw honey (omit or replace with pureed pineapple or peach for Whole30)
  • 1/4 cup Vinegar (Apple Cider or Coconut Vinegar is great!)
  • 1/4 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Red Chili Flakes (adjust depending on heat preference)
  • 3 Garlic cloves (diced)
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil (sub coconut oil, ghee, or avocado oil)
  • 2 tbsp Arrowroot powder
  • 3 tbsp Water
How to cook:
  1. Set your Instant Pot to Saute mode.
  2. Add sesame oil and chicken to the pot and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until most of the chicken has some white on it. It does not that to be anywhere near cooked through! This step helps cut down on cooking time AND for the pot to come to pressure quicker!
  3. After your chicken has cooked for those few minutes, combine your remaining ingredients in a separate bowl (except for the arrowroot powder and water) and pour over your chicken.
  4. Place the lid on your pot, turn the valve to seal, press manual and set the time for 8 minutes.
  5. Once the timer goes off, do a QR (quick release), and open it up! It will be bubbly and on the runny side. Now is the time to thicken!
  6. Combine the arrowroot powder and water to make a slurry. Stir this mixture into your chicken until the sauce has thickened! This should only take a minute or so. If you find that it's not thick enough, you can always add a bit more arrowroot/water mixture until the desired consistency is reached.
  7. Be sure to turn the pot off too! It automatically switches to "Keep Warm" mode after cooking. I have forgotten that a time or two! ENJOY!!
