Blood Orange Chicken Stir Fry

I love citrus flavored meat. I picked up some blood oranges at Trader Joe's this weekend. I just knew I wanted to attempt to make a delicious citrus flavored chicken dish. 

I thawed chicken tenders directly in the citrus mixture. Soaked the chicken all day and then drained the juices when it was time to cook. 

The Ingredients:

The Marinade:
1 blood orange juiced
1/4 cup of orange juice
2 TBSP Coconut Aminos
2 TBSP Olive Oil

6 chicken tenders
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped
2 cups spinach
unsweetened coconut for topping

The Directions:
Take chicken out of the freezer and place in Tupperware or Ziploc. Mix the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. I let the chicken soak for 8 hours. 

In a large frying pan lay the chicken out. Do not over crowd the chicken. Pour a little of the marinade over the chicken and brown both sides. Take chicken out and cut into pieces. Add chicken back to the pan and continue to cook. Add zucchini, squash and bell peppers and cook for 5 - 10 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until spinach is wilted. 

Once you plate the stir-fry top with unsweetened shredded coconut.
