Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons organic tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Optional toppings: thinly sliced green onions and sesame seeds

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, tamari, honey, rice vinegar and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet or wok set over medium-high heat, heat the oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook for 3-5 minutes or until the chicken is almost cooked through.
  • Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute further until fragrant.
  • Add the teriyaki sauce to the pan and stir to combine until the chicken is evenly coated. Continue cooking for about 3 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and has thickened.
  • Top with green onions and sesame seeds if using. Serve warm with cooked rice, quinoa and/or vegetables.

Notes

  1. If possible, I highly recommend using organic chicken in this recipe for maximum health benefits.
  2. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to five days or in the freezer for up to three months.
