Ingredients
 

  • 2 large chicken breasts, skinless, boneless
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch/flour
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Avocado oil
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp fish sauce, optional
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp organic ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch/flour
  • Sea salt , to taste

Instructions
 

  • Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and place in a large bowl with arrowroot flour, salt & pepper. Toss until chicken is coated. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients (or use a blender to combine ingredients). Set aside.
  • Cover the bottom of a large frying pan with avocado oil and heat until it begins to sizzle. Add coated chicken cubes to the hot oil. You may need to do this in two batches if your frying pan is not big enough. Cook each batch for about 10 minutes, turning mid-way through, until all sides are golden. Set chicken aside.
  • Once all chicken is browned, add back into the hot skillet. Whisk sauce once more & pour into the skillet with chicken. Add 3/4 of the green onions (save the rest for garnish) & cook, stirring until sauce thickens & chicken is well-coated.
  • Top with remaining green onions and enjoy on its own, with steamed veggies or on top of cauliflower "rice"!
