Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry

Back when I was attempting yet another Whole30, I came across this recipe and immediately modified and made it our way.

Even Mark liked it … what do you know!?

Yeah. It was good!

I’ve since made it quite a few times since … and really should have made it again when I had those bags of fresh broccoli from Costco … I didn’t though as we ended up traveling to Houston for our 2nd opinion with  MD Anderson but now thinking I need to make this in March! I also think I need to get a menu plan going and start some meal prep on Sunday after we get back home and so many other things … but FIRST we need to get Mark’s treatments started so we can get moving with our lives …

Regardless. MAKE THIS! SOON!

I haven’t made this with frozen broccoli but I’m thinking that it would be ok?

Here’s what you need:

2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in to bite size pieces

1 large head of broccoli, cut into, you guessed it, bite size pieces

2 tbs ginger … I’m not a fan but I used this stuff

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp red pepper flakes

2/3 c coconut aminos (replaces soy sauce)

1 tbs arrowroot powder

bag of riced cauliflower or some zoodles, your call! Yes, if you must, you can use regular rice!

See, it doesn’t take a lot of stuff. And it’s only about 30 minutes of cooking time so hop to it and make this! If you are ahead of your game and work 8+ hours a day away from home, do all your chopping in the morning before heading to work and then you can get things moving quickly!

Heat up a large skillet over medium heat and add oil some oil (avocado or olive oil),  ginger, coconut aminos, salt, garlic powder, and those pepper flakes if you are using.  Add the chicken and give the pan a quick shake to coat the pieces. Cook chicken until about half-cooked.

Add your broccoli, shake the pan a little again and turn up the heat. Put a lid on the pan. I used a lid that sat just inside the pan as I didn’t want it to be 100% sealed … Lift the lid every few minutes to give a quick stir to keep the broccoli coated.

Once the broccoli starts to get soft, add a sprinkle of arrowroot powder over the mixture and stir with a large spoon. This will help to thicken the sauce a little.

Serve over riced cauliflower, zoodles or just plain ole rice if desired. Enjoy!

Mark and Jamie prefer this stuff … and yes, I will agree, it’s tasty BUT not necessarily the cleanest thing to be eating! I know there is SOY in that and well, if you are using the more expensive coconut aminos, I’d suggest you make the whole meal soy free which was  the original goal!

OH, and whatever else you do, make sure you pull some out and set aside for lunch later in the week! You’ll be glad you did!
