Stir Fry Sauce:


  • In a pan, heat olive oil. Add in chicken and saute for 10 minutes. The chicken should be browned on all sides
  • While chicken cooks, whisk together stir fry sauce & chop broccoli.
  • Once chicken has cooked, add broccoli + stir fry sauce. Cover and cook for 10 more minutes.
  • While broccoli cooks prep rice or cauliflower rice if serving with rice.
  • The broccoli should be fork tender after 10 minutes.
  • Serve over rice, cauliflower rice or enjoy on it’s own!
  • Optional: If you like a thicker stir fry sauce you can whisk in cornstarch before adding the sauce to the pot. This is totally unnecessary and it will be fine without it.



Chicken- You can substitute chicken breasts with chopped chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken thighs
Vegetables: Any vegetables will work in this stir fry. Peppers, mushrooms, onions or even zucchini can be substituted for broccoli.
Coconut Aminos: You can sub coconut aminos with low sodium soy sauce or bragg’s liquid aminos – but the recipe will no longer be paleo. If using Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, use HALF the amount – bragg’s is much saltier.
Honey: I haven't tried it but I think you can sub honey with maple syrup
Ginger: you can substitute fresh ginger with 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Garlic: You can substitute fresh garlic with 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Chicken Stock: Chicken stock can be substituted with any broth/stock. Vegetable or beef broth will be fine
Whole30: Sub date paste for honey or skip sweetener.
Keto: Sub honey for keto friendly sweetener or skip sweetener
