I have a lot to fill ya in on but until then, I’m sharing a quick recipe!
Raise your hand if you need more veggies in your life? Keep your hand raised if you get sick and tired of the same veggies cooked the same way each week?
Insert this Stir Fry!
I used chicken in the recipe you will see below but you could easily use a different kind of meat (beef, seasoned pork, shrimp, bison?) Don’t be afraid to try different cuts of meats you already enjoy and mix it up!
This recipe is very versatile and works for a lot of lifestyles. If you are gluten free it works perfectly and you could easily add quinoa or rice. If you are soy free it’s prefer because there is NO soy sauce! #winning
If you are sugar free it’s perfect because there are no sauces or fruits. If you are vegetarian or vegan just omit the meat option. See how awesome it is? At the end of the day I found this recipe in the Whole30 cookbook and tweaked a few things to make it fit my family’s tastes – I hope you enjoy it!
NOTE: Don’t skip out on the fresh garlic and ginger. I say this is in love! In the past I’ve been known to omit these 2 and sub garlic or ginger powder – it’s just NOT the same!
Chicken Stir Fry
Paleo and Whole30 Approved
3 T coconut oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic minced
1 T grated fresh ginger
3-4 cups broccoli florets
2 cups mushrooms sliced
1 large carrot finely chopped
3-4 cups fresh green beans cut in half
1/4 of a large red onion sliced
1/2 cup cashews (optional)
- Heat 2 T coconut oil in large skillet or dutch oven pan over medium heat. Place chicken in pan and sear/cook until the outside is browned and chicken reaches 155 – 165 degrees. Make sure to flip every 3-4 minutes so it does not get burnt.
- Add garlic and ginger once chicken is cooked. Stir and let cook for 1 -2 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside to rest.
- Add additional remaining oil to pan. Increase heat to medium/high heat.
- Add broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, green beans, and onion. Stir fry until vegetables are softened to your liking. Anywhere from 4-10 minutes.
- While veggies cook, stirring every few minutes, slice chicken. Once veggies are done, return chicken to pan and cook additional 2-3 minutes making sure to mix everything evenly.
- Divide dish between 2 plates and top with cashews if desired. You could also serve with green onions or lime – your call!
