Ingredients

For the marinade:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast thin sliced
  • ½ cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the stir fry:

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 large carrot sliced
  • ½ onion sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 1 bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 cup 4 oz snow peas
  • 1 can water chestnuts drained
  • ½ tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Cauliflower fried rice
  • Scallions chopped

Instructions

  1. Place chicken in zipper bag. Mix marinade in a bowl, then pour in the bag. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir carrots, onion, broccoli, mushrooms, bell pepper, snow peas, and water chestnuts until just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove vegetables from skillet and keep warm.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving liquid. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken until slightly pink on the inside, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Return vegetables and reserved marinade to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sesame seeds. Serve over cauliflower rice and garnish with scallions.
