"I have to say this is now a staple recipe of mine, and seeing the faces of my family as they took their first bite was priceless.
I cooked the noodles separately using shirataki noodles from Miracle Noodle, which are gluten-free and have almost no calories/no carbs/no anything, really! They're traditionally made from fiber from the root of the konjac plant (97% water and 3% fiber). Not that I have anything against carbs and calories, I just enjoy these noodles on occassion!"
Cooking time is 20-30 minutes.
12 ounces of chicken breast
2 tbsp olive oil
1/3 white onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/3-1/4 cup coconut aminos
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp corn or arrowroot starch
Garlic pepper, ground ginger, salt and pepper to taste
Miracle Noodle Angel Hair, prepared
Optional: red chili pepper flakes
1. Heat a large skillet on medium/high and add olive oil. Trim & dice chicken breast and add to the skillet when hot (not smoking). Spread chicken evenly across skillet.
2. When the chicken looks almost cooked/starts to brown, add minced garlic, diced onion, garlic powder, & s+p. Mix around. Once almost fully cooked, add in coconut aminos, honey, and sesame oil.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the water and cornstarch until fully dissolved and then add it to the skillet to thicken the sauce.
4. Stir everything really well and then add in raw broccoli. Give it all another good stir, cover the pot, and let it sit for 5-7 min on medium heat. Turn off the heat, sprinkle green onions and sesame seeds.
