Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Chinese Orange Chicken

** Recipe included in my new low carb, gluten free cookbook, Low Carbing Among Friends. Please check it out at our website @ http://www.amongfriends.us **

In partnership with FaveDiets ( http://www.FaveDiets.com ) recipe site, I wanted to produce an original recipe that was developed out of a comment made on my buffalo wings about using diet orange soda instead of cola. I took that idea and thought about making orange chicken out of the idea. I am pretty pleased with the outcome, but if you aren’t a huge fan of spicy foods, you might want to back off the crushed red pepper amount. Note: even though the carbs are less than 3g per servings, this recipe as made is not Induction friendly, but I have provided the options on how to make it Induction friendly.

The chicken strips sans the orange sauce also make delicious meal too. I was almost tempted to make two separate videos because the chicken strips are that good, but I’ll likely just refer to this one in the future.

I hope you guys like this original creation.
