Ingredients


454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (for the chicken)
1/2 tsp Sea salt (+ 1/4 tsp for chicken)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Bone broth, Organic (for the chicken)
1 medium Yellow onion
6 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 piece, 1-inch Ginger root (peeled, minced)
3 large Carrots (sliced diagonally)
454 gm Broccoli, raw (chopped)
1/2 cup Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret
2 cup White mushrooms (chopped)
1/2 whole lemon(s) Lemon juice

Instructions


1. Prep all of your vegetables according to the ingredient instructions. 

2. Bring the chicken breast to room temperature and pat it dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the chicken all over with sea salt.

3. Heat a large skillet or wok on your stovetop over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to your skillet and let it warm up for 15 seconds. 

4. Once your oil is warmed, place the chicken breasts top-down in the oil. Add in the broth, cover with a tight-fitted lid and turn down to a simmer (low heat). Cook the chicken for 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside to let cool.

5. Add the onions into the hot skillet and cook them down for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in the garlic, ginger and 1/2 tsp of sea salt and cook, stirring for another minute. Add the carrots, broccoli, and coconut aminos and cover with a tight-fitted lid, cooking for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the mushrooms and cook for another couple of minutes, until everything is soft. 

6. While the vegetables are cooking, shred your cooled chicken with a fork. Once your mushrooms have cooked down a bit, add the chicken back into the vegetable mixture and stir to heat throughout.

7. Serve with rice or cauliflower rice and enjoy! Store leftovers in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to a week.
