Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil separated
  • 1 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into bite sized cubes
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger minced or grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup liquid aminos
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp Brown Swerve
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • chopped green onion optional, for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum optional

Instructions

  • In a large saute pan or wok, heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Once hot, add the chicken, ginger, and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes, until chicken is browned.
  • Remove chicken from pan and place onto a large plate.  Add an additional Tbsp of coconut oil and the sesame oil to the pan. Add the onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms and broccoli. Saute for about 3 minutes, tossing vegetables so that they are coated in oil.
  • Add the liquid aminos, red pepper flakes, and Brown Wwerve. Place chicken back into the pan and toss together. Simmer for 5-6 minutes, until vegetables are still crisp but fork tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Optional Step: In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum with a tablespoon of the liquid from the pan. Add the mixture back into the pan and stir, over low heat, for 1-2 more minutes, until the sauce has thickened.
