Gluten-Free Friday: San-J Sweet N Tangy Sauce

06212013 - 1When it comes to gluten-free Asian, San-J is the best brand for sauces.  They not only offer soy sauce, but also a variety of sauces great for stir fries, marinades and dipping.  Out of all the sauces that they offer, the Sweet N Tangy is my favorite.

It's very similar to sweet n' sour sauce, but not that garish red color you see at Chinese food places in the mall, it's a much more normal shade.  Also, it's not nearly as sugary sweet.  It works great as a straight stir fry sauce, and I've also had excellent results basting pineapple kebabs with it before grilling.  

A few nights ago, I decided to jazz it up with a few extra ingredients to make a chicken dish with delicious results!

Sweet N Tangy Baked Orange Chicken

06212013 - 2


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Zest and juice of one orange
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup San-J Sweet N Tangy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp orange marmalade


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put chicken breasts in a baking dish and whisk together the remaining ingredients.  Baste chicken with the sauce.

Bake chicken for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until the internal temp reaches 165 degrees.  Baste periodically during baking with more sauce.

Add remaining sauce to a small saucepan and boil until reduced and slightly thickened.  After chicken has rested, slice the chicken and drizzle sauce over the slices.
