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 Food: Homemade Teriyaki Shrimps

I love Chinese food. My favorite restaurant is one from back home in WI. When I’m home, I want to eat there.

Moy’s Restaurant of Elkhorn, WI, serves crispy egg rolls with surprise ingredient, peanut butter. And their house rice is exactly what you want in a fried rice and filled with shrimps, chicken, and pork. **My mouth is watering.**

My homemade Chinese makes it into our weekly menu all the time. This recipe is delicious and easy. Enjoy with fresh vegetables or a salad and dinner is ready!

Homemade Teriyaki Shrimps

  • 10 ounces prepared and thawed shrimpsIMG_20171007_193518 (1)
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup OJ
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper (for shrimps)
  • sesame seeds (optional)

In a skillet, add the oil and heat for two minutes. Add the shrimps and sprinkle salt and pepper over top. Cook the shrimps until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients and add to the hot pan. Cook about 5 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken a bit, and add the shrimps back to the pan in the last minute of cooking. Serve with sesame seeds sprinkled over top. Yum.

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!
