Ingredient notes

  • Ground chicken – Chicken is so mild and takes on the flavor of the sauce really well. Ground turkey, ground beef, ground pork, etc. would work well, too.
  • Veggies – If desired, you can use other veggies in this skillet. Typical stir-fry veggies work best (bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, snap peas, green beans, etc.)
  • Coconut aminos – You can substitute liquid aminos or soy sauce if desired. Start with 2 tablespoons and add more to suit your taste as they are saltier than coconut aminos.
  • Arrowroot starch – We use it as a thickener for the sauce. You can substitute tapioca starch, cassava flour or corn starch if desired.

Ingredients

For the stir-fry

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil, divided, (or other cooking oil of choice)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

For the stir-fry sauce

Instructions
 

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in 1 tbsp sesame oil. Once the pan is hot, add in the ground chicken and break it into small chunks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 7-8 minutes.
  • While the chicken is cooking, chop the broccoli, carrots and bell pepper as noted. Make the stir fry sauce by mixing all of the ingredients in a small bowl or jar.

  • Remove from heat when the veggies are cooked to your liking. Serve and enjoy.
