For the sauce

  • 1/2 cup Instant Pot Orange Marmalade or Lemon Honey Marmalade to make it Lemon Chicken
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Orange Zested
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

For the chicken

  • 1 pound Chicken Breast cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Arrowroot Starch
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Green Onions optional garnish


  • Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl then set aside.
  • Toss the chicken with salt, arrowroot starch, garlic powder and ground ginger.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes until crispy and cooked through.
  • Add the garlic and ginger to the pan and cook for 2-3minutes or until fragrant. Stir in the sauce, coating the chicken.
  • Simmer for 3-4 minutes to allow to thicken. Serve hot and garnish with green onions.


  • If you don’t have any Instant Pot Orange Marmalade, you can easily substitute Lemon Honey Marmalade. Or 1/4 cup honey, zest and juice of 1 orange.
  • This dish goes well with Cauliflower rice or white rice (AIP reintroduction)
  • If you prefer chicken thighs, you can use those instead of breasts.
  • This recipe is shown with Garlic Bok Choy.
