What You Need:

  • Chicken Breast
  • Broccoli
  • Water Chestnuts – if you want to lower the carb count, you can leave these out. I personally love the texture they add
  • Coconut Aminos – this is a gluten and soy-free soy sauce alternative. It is a little bit sweeter than soy sauce and I absolutely love it
  • Chicken Broth
  • Sesame Oil
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Pepper Flakes – I love spice in my asian inspired dishes, but you can omit if you don’t want any spice
  • Salt & Pepper

Let’s Cook Stir-Fry:

  1. The first step is to make the stir-fry sauce so that it is ready when you need it. So we add the coconut aminos, chicken broth, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes to a measuring glass and whisk to combine. Set aside for later
  2. Then we season the cubed chicken with salt and pepper and brown in a large skillet with the sesame oil. This adds both flavor and texture to the chicken. Once browned and cooked through (165′ internal temp) remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add more oil to the skillet and toss in the broccoli florets. Cook for 3-4 minutes until they get a little color and then pour in the stir-fry sauce and water chestnuts. Let cook for another 3-4 minutes and stir in the chicken. Cook just until broccoli is tender but not mushy.
  4. If you want to thicken the sauce, you can make a slurry of arrowroot and room temp water and add to the sauce – let simmer until thickened (1-2 minutes) Use xanthan gum for keto.
