Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ pounds cubed chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • ½ cup snow peas

Sugar Free Stir Fry Sauce

  • cup coconut aminos
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour, or arrowroot powder
  • ¼ tsp lemon juice, optional
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, optional
  • 1 tsp chili paste, optional
  • green onions, for garnish

Instructions 

  • First, add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Once oil is hot, add cubed chicken to pan. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove chicken to a plate. Add all veggies to the hot skillet. Cook on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until veggies have softened.
  • While veggies are cooking, make stir fry sauce. Combine all stir fry ingredients (except green onions) in a bowl.
  • Once veggies are softened, add cooked chicken back into skillet. Pour stir fry sauce over both chicken and veggies. Stir to combine.
  • Bring mixture to a light boil then reduce heat to a low simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  • Finally, remove from heat. Garnish with green onions if desired.

Notes

  • Chicken thighs are typically more flavorful than chicken breasts.  I recommend using thighs, but use breasts if desired.
  • Feel free to use different veggies if desired.
  • Check out my Sugar Free Stir Fry Sauce post for more information.
  • The lemon juice, sesame oil and chili paste are completely optional.  They add some bold flavor and spice to this sauce!
  • Tapioca flour can be replaced by arrowroot starch or cornstarch (not Whole30 or Paleo).
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To reheat, add to a skillet over low heat with a drizzle of olive oil.  Heat until warmed.
