Easy Veggie & Chicken Stirfry with Coconut
Makes 2 servings

Ingredients

2 tsp coconut oil
8 oz. chicken breast meat cut into 1/2” strips
½ yellow onion, peeled and sliced into long crescents
½ TBS fresh gingerroot, finely diced
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4” half moons
1/2 cup mushrooms of choice, sliced thinly
2 heaping TBS unsweetened shredded coconut
1 TBS sweet mirin (rice-based vinegar)
Black pepper, to taste
Wheat-free tamari sauce, to taste
[Note: If you are allergic or intolerant to soy, use a coconut-based amino sauce instead, like this one: http://www.coconutsecret.com/aminos2.html]

Directions

  1. Wash the vegetables and prepare as described above.
  2. Heat the coconut oil on medium heat for 1 minute in a medium sized skillet or wok.
  3. Add onion, garlic, and ginger and stir constantly over medium heat for 2 minutes until the onions begin turning translucent. Avoid burning the garlic.
  4. Add chicken and stir until all sides of meat are lightly browned, about 6-7 minutes.
  5. Add zucchini and stir for 2 minutes. You may want to add a splash of filtered water at this time to help steam the zucchini.
  6. Add mushrooms and stir for another 2 minutes
  7. Add coconut, mirin, and tamari sauce. Stir thoroughly.
  8. Check and see whether the chicken meat is fully opaque and cooked through. If so, you’re done.
