  • 1.5 lbs Boneless skinless chicken breast cut into small chunks
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 large garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger minced
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper optional
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 medium sized yellow onion chopped
  • 10 oz asparagus stalks ends trimmed, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup trimmed green beans
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch* optional
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper optional


  1. Begin by heating a LARGE skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Make your sauce: whisk together balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos or soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper (if using). Set aside.
  3. Once skillet is hot, add sesame oil or coconut oil to coat the pan. Toss in all vegetables. Let your veggies cook for about 5 minutes (onions should be soft, mushrooms beginning to brown, and the rest still crispy).
  4. Toss in chicken pieces. Cook for another 8-10 minutes (depending on thickness of chicken). Chicken should be no longer pink, but still tender. Toss sauce into the pan and coat veggies and chicken.
  5. If you wish to thicken the sauce, add in arrowroot starch by first mixing with 1 tbsp of water. Add to pan and cook let simmer for another 2 minutes.
  6. Serve hot! Best served over rice or cauliflower rice.
