Paleo General Tso’s Chicken

1 lb of chicken tenderloins, cubed
1/2 cup of diced onion
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper flakes
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of Orange juice
3 Tablespoons of coconut aminos (soy sauce if not strict paleo)
3 cups of broccoli florets
2 green onions/scallions sliced
Cauliflower rice/regular rice, already prepared

Preheat pan to medium.
Add oil, red pepper flakes, and 4 cloves of crushed garlic. Swirl to combine.
Add cubed chicken and onion and cook through about 7-8 minutes. Do NOT let heat get above a medium setting or garlic and pepper flakes will scorch.
Remove from pan.
Add broccoli and 1/4 cup of water. Place lid on and let it cook until crisp tender.
While broccoli is cooking, add rice/cauliflower rice to bowls.
Remove broccoli from heat and divide among bowls.
Return chicken to pan. Add orange juice, coconut aminos, and half of the green onions. Cook down until sauce begins to thicken.
Remove from heat and serve over broccoli. Top with remaining green onions.
