  • 3-4 dates pitted (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup apple cider or juice (make sure it is just apples as ingredient with no added sugar)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 tbsp tapioca starch or arrowroot starch (depending on how thick you like your sauce)
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups  carrots chopped (about 4 medium carrots)
  • 4-5 cups broccoli florets (about 12 oz)
  • 2 bell peppers deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil or oil of choice


  • In a high-speed blender, combine dates, coconut aminos, apple cider/juice, 1 tablespoon tapioca starch, ginger and garlic powder. Blend for 60 seconds or until dates are completely blended.
    *if you do not have a high speed blender, soak your dates in hot water for 15 minutes, drain and then add them to the blender. This will make them less taxing on your blender*
  • Put sauce aside
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add cooking oil.
  • Once oil is hot, add chicken, carrots and broccoli florets. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add bell peppers to the skillet, stirring a few times to incorporate. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add teriyaki sauce to the stir fry. Stir to coat the chicken and veggies and cook for 4-5 more minutes or until sauce thickens. If you like your sauce thicker, sprinkle an additional 1/2-1 tablespoon of tapioca starch over the stir fry and stir in to the meal until is disappears.
  • Enjoy warm! Pairs well with cauliflower rice, rice, mach cauliflower or mashed potatoes.
