Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1" chunks (can also use chicken breasts)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • 1.5 tablespoons avocado oil for frying
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup grated carrots optional
  • toasted sesame seeds for garish
  • chopped green onions for garnish

FOR THE SAUCE:

Instructions

  1. Season chicken with salt, pepper.. Allow to sit while you make the bowl.
  2. To make the sauce and marinade, whisk together the broth, aminos, sesame oil, vinegar, five spice powder and monk fruit sweetener, if using. Toss chicken with 1/2 tablespoon of the sauce. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
  3. Add avocado oil to a hot wok or pan. Sear the chicken until brown then transfer to a plate.
  4. Add a little bit more avocado oil then add broccoli and carrots. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until tender crisp.
  5. Stir in the remainder of the sauce. Sprinkle in xanthan gum, if you want a thicker sauce.
  6. Add the cooked chicken back to the pan until heated through. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and green onions and serve over cauliflower rice or lettuce wraps.
