  • Cuisine: Stir Fry

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3 peeled and thinly sliced long carrots
  • 2 heaping cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 sliced white onion
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 2.5 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: water chestnuts, sliced green onion to garnish


  1. Thinly slice the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  2. Add sesame oil, olive oil, minced garlic and minced ginger into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Allow the oil and aminos to get hot and the garlic and ginger to begin to sauté.
  3. Once the garlic and ginger are fragrant, add in the coconut aminos. Stir and heat everything together. Once the aminos are hot and bubbling, begin adding the thinly sliced chicken into the skillet in one even layer. You may need to do this in two batches.
  4. Cook for 3 minutes, flip each piece of chicken and cook an additional 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add the onions and carrots into the skillet and being sautéing. Cook for about 4 minutes, or until they begin to soften, and then add in the green peppers and broccoli. Cook for an additional 4 minutes. If you want the vegetables soften than fork tender/still a bit crunchy, then cook longer until they’re at your preferred texture.
  6. Add the chicken back into the skillet and stir to combine with the vegetables. Cook 2-3 minutes to reheat the chicken. Remove from heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with green onions
