I was craving Chinese food last night and I managed to avoid ordering delivery by cooking up this recipe. It was incredibly tasty and a great way to jazz up the boring boneless/skinless chicken breast I had on the menu for dinner. Despite its tastiness, it wasn't long before my stomach was protesting. Some of the ingredients were definitely not Paleo:
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Juice (had none, so I subbed more vinegar)
I plan to keep this recipe around and my thoughts are to replace the brown sugar and ketchup with molasses (still sugary, but a "real" food) and to continue to use the vinegar.
My big concern is the soy sauce. I usually don't worry about it as most recipes I use only call for a splash, but this recipe called for quite a bit (1/3 cup). I used conventional soy sauce. I'm wondering if there is a good soy sauce substitute, or is there a specific brand that anyone knows of that is less processed?
Any other suggestions for substitutions (or alternative bourbon chicken recipes) are welcome!
