STEP 1: Let's make some healthy teriyaki sauce! Coconut aminos (or soy sauce, or tamari), honey, cider vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, garlic, fresh ginger, salt, and pepper.
STEP 1 (con't): Whisk it up in a 1-cup measuring cup or small bowl until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
STEP 2: Saute diced chicken breast in a bit of oil until no longer pink; it won't be fully cooked through yet, but that's okay! The chicken will cook through in the following steps.
STEP 3: Add carrots slices and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the broccoli florets and cook for 1 minute.
TIP: adding the veggies in stages = perfectly cooked and not mushy!
STEP 4: Let's get saucy!! Pour in the teriyaki sauce. Give everything a quick toss to make sure it's evenly coated.
TIP: give the sauce a quick stir before adding to reincorporate any ingredients that have separated or settled.
STEP 4 (con't): Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, the vegetables are tender, and the chicken is cooked through.
TIP: use an instant read thermometer inserted into the center of a piece of chicken if you're unsure!
STEP 5: Serve in bowls over steamed rice, or sautéed cauliflower rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and dive on it!
