Ingredients
  • 2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, raw
  • 1 lb. package frozen chopped vegetables (I used a mix of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots)
  • 3 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil (unrefined will taste too coconutty)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (6oz)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish
Instructions
  1. Cube the chicken breast into 1-inch cubes. Set aside.
  2. Place the frozen vegetables in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water, cover and microwave 3 minutes. Stir, cover again, and microwave 2 more minutes or until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. Prepare the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, red pepper flakes and cornstarch. Set aside.
  4. In a large, deep skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until translucent but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken breast cubes and stir-fry until no longer raw, turning the chicken pieces so that they are cooked on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  7. Add the vegetables and the sauce. Cook, stirring gently, until everything is well-coated and sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes.
  8. Off heat, drizzle with the sesame oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
