This easy and healthy orange chicken is a great way to spice up your usual chicken meals. The orange marmalade gives the dish a sweet and tangy bite and the sesame seeds sprinkled over the top give it amazing crunch and texture. Be sure to buy organic and raw sesame seeds. They have amazing health benefits, which include lowering blood pressure, cancer and diabetes prevention, increase heart health, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, strengthen both oral and respiratory health, detoxify the body and eliminate depression. The chicken can be served over rice but if you want to reduce your carb intake serve it over riced cauliflower. Easy, delicious and good for you!
