When I looked in my fridge yesterday morning I was surprised by the emptiness. I had just done a grocery run earlier that week. Our family is eating so much more food (whole food) and I needed to replenish. The only problem was that I had to make dinner before my next grocery run. Time to get creative! I had a pound of chicken breasts and some broccoli. I almost always have onions in our vegetable drawer so chicken and broccoli it was! Good stir fry sauce is easy to make so I whisked some together in a flash. I’ll leave you that recipe below but you can always use store bought teriyaki sauce if you have it on hand. Serve on top of your favorite rice. Here we go…
• 1 lb chicken breasts cubed
• 3-4 cups broccoli florets
• 1 onion sliced
Staples: 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp minced or powdered garlic, sesame seeds to garnish
• 3 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
• 2 tbsp rice vinegar
• 2 tbsp honey
• 1 tbsp sesame oil
Staples: 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tbsp corn starch to thicken if desired
1. Coat a large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil. Sauté onion and garlic on medium heat for 3 minutes. Add chicken and cook through until no longer pink inside, about 5 -10 minutes depending on the size of your cubes.
2. Add broccoli to skillet and cook until bright green.
3. Add sauce and stir. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with sesame seeds.
1. Whisk together ingredients.
Serve stir fry on it’s own or on top of your favorite rice.
Easy peasy. Enjoy! xoxo
