Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons avocado oil

1 tablespoon fresh, minced ginger

3 large garlic cloves, minced

1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces  

1 small head broccoli, cut into florets

1 green pepper, sliced

1 package carrot noodles

½ tsp. White pepper

1.5 tbsp. Fish sauce

1-2 tbsp. Coconut aminos

Salt and pepper to taste

Sliced scallions for garnish

Directions:

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and set aside. Heat 1 tbsp oil in wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add ginger, stirring for 30 seconds. Add chicken in single layer and cook until chicken is seared, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Keeping the pan over medium-high heat, add second tbsp of oil and garlic and heat until golden brown. Add in broccoli and pepper slices and cook for 5 minutes. As you toss, add in white pepper, fish sauce, and coconut aminos. Then add back in the chicken and toss with veggies. Cook another 2 minutes or until  chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  3. Add carrot noodles and cook for another minute or two until carrots are just warm. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with scallions before serving.
