|15 min||15 min||4|
|1/2 cup||Peanut butter, natural (for sauce)|
|1/4 cup||Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (for sauce)|
|2 tbsp||Lime juice (fresh) (for sauce)|
|1 tbsp||Apple cider vinegar (for sauce)|
|1 tbsp||Sesame oil (toasted, for sauce)|
|1 tbsp||Honey (for sauce)|
|1/2 piece, 1-inch||Ginger root (peeled and chopped, for sauce)|
|1 clove(s)||Garlic (peeled, for sauce)|
|1 tbsp||Coconut oil|
|2 breast||Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (cubed)|
|1 pinch||Salt and pepper|
|1 tbsp||Coconut oil|
|6 cup||Broccoli florets|
|1/2 tsp||Salt (to taste)|
|1/2 tsp||Black pepper (to taste)|
1. To make your peanut sauce, blend peanut butter, coconut aminos, lime juice, vinegar, sesame oil, honey, ginger and garlic until smooth. (If you don’t have a blender, mince the ginger and garlic and then whisk all of the ingredients together very well.) Set aside.
2. Melt the coconut oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the chicken cubes and sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper. Cook until browned on the outside and no longer pink in the center, about 5-10 minutes. (Time depends on how small you cubed your chicken. If you need them to cook faster, make them smaller.)
3. Removed the cooked chicken from the pan and cover it to keep it warm. Turn the heat up just a bit and add coconut oil to the pan. When it melts, add the broccoli and sprinkle it with a little bit of salt and pepper. Toss the broccoli to coat it in the coconut oil and then add a few tablespoons of water. Cook until the broccoli is bright green and crisp tender, about 4-5 minutes.
4. Add the chicken back into the pan with the broccoli and turn off the heat. Add the peanut sauce and stir to coat evenly. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
No coconut aminos?
You can use soy sauce or tamari instead. You may need to use a little bit less as they tend to be more salty.
Never eat poultry that is raw, or not cooked through. Internal temperature of chicken breast pieces should be 165F or 74C degrees.
High in lean protein, it helps to build muscle and boost metabolism.
Broccoli is a good source of vitamin K and calcium, two vital nutrients for maintaining strong, healthy bones.
