  • Transfer chicken to a plate and keep warm.
  • Add orange juice to skillet and cook; scraping up the brown bites, for about 1 minute. Add broccoli; cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until broccoli is tender. Next, add in your zoodles and stir until well combined, cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, coconut aminos (or low-sodium soy sauce), honey, garlic, and salt in a skillet. Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 more minute until the sauce has thickened. Add the chicken back in and combine. Cook until heated through.
