Honey Chicken Chinese Dinner

I love homemade Chinese food. It’s easy and quick to pull together and healthier and more fulfilling than take out. Plus, if you don’t have good Chinese near you (we def don’t,) than not only is this the best option, but the only option.

But, honestly, this recipe is so good. I made it, I ate it and it was awesome. Nick thought so, too, and so will you. Enjoy!

Honey Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut up into 1 inch piecesIMG_20180216_142624
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 scallion, chopped (to sprinkle at the end of cooking)
  • sesame seeds (optional)

Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca flour

In a medium-sized bowl, mix your chopped chicken, 2 tablespoons tapioca starch and a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat a medium skillet on medium heat with the avocado oil and add the chicken to the pan. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Add the carrots and cook an additional 2 minutes.

In a separate pan, add the sauce ingredients together and whisk to combine. Add the sauce to the chicken and carrots and let cook about five minutes or until the sauce thickens a bit. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

Chinese Lime Broccoli

Lime and broccoli create a fresh, light combination. This broccoli recipe is quick and easy, with a Chinese twist. A little pinch of red pepper flakes finishes off the dish with a little spice.

 Chinese Lime Broccoli

  • 2 cups fresh broccoli, choppedIMG_20171003_145102
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut aminos (soy sauce)
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey (or vegan preference)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • sesame seeds (optional)

Steam the broccoli. (If you don’t have a steamer, I “steam” by adding about one inch of water to the bottom of a sauce pan with the broccoli, and turning the heat on high. Once the water is boiling, I stir the broccoli a couple times and cook until you can pretty easily insert a fork.)

To a medium -sized bowl, add the ingredients and stir. Finish by tossing the broccoli with the sauce. Shake some sesame seeds on top and enjoy=)

Homemade Meat and Vegetable Chinese (Paleo)

You’ll swear you’re eating takeout. This recipe was named by a close friend because it is so good, you can’t stop eating it! Vegetables and ground beef combine and take on the flavors and textures of your favorite Chinese dish, but homemade and healthy.

“Hamburger Crack”

  • Half a large head of purple cabbage, sliced into strips
  • One red onion, sliced into strips
  • 12 oz green beans, cut off ends and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos (soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

In a wok or large skillet pan, add one tablespoon of coconut oil on medium heat with the onions and green beans and let that cook for 5-10 minutes. Now make a circle sized space in the middle of the pan and put the beef in and cook until browned.

Then layer the minced garlic, sliced mushrooms and sliced cabbage on top of the meat and vegetables, cover the wok and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes. Add the aminos, seasame oil and pepper and cook additional 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
