Ingredients

For homemade sauce

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos 
  • 2 tablespoons honey, maple syrup or date syrup (for Whole30) to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp tapioca starch or arrowroot starch (depending on how thick you like your sauce)

For stir-fry

  • 1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil or oil of choice
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 bell peppers deseeded and chopped
  • 4-5 cups broccoli florets (about 12 oz)
  • 2 1/2 cups  carrots chopped (about 4 medium carrots)

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together ingredients for the teriyaki sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add cooking oil.
  • Once oil is hot, add chicken and cook for about 5 minutes. Add carrots and broccoli florets. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add bell peppers to the skillet, stirring a few times to incorporate. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  • 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 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.
