Stir Fry Ginger Cashew Chicken
Total time- 20 mins
For the cauliflower rice:
- ½ tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 head of cauliflower
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- OR purchase already riced cauliflower
For the sauce:
- 3 tablespoons cashew butter
- 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons warm water, to thin the sauce
- spicy: add a few bits red pepper flakes
For the stir fry:
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut small
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
- Salt and pepper
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 bunch green onions, sliced
- 1 medium head broccoli, cut into small florets
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
- 1 large carrot, shredded
- extra green onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- ¼ cup raw cashews
Remove all greens from cauliflower and break into florets. You can either use a box grater, or a food processor to process the cauliflower into rice. If using a food processor (the easier method), simply add half of cauliflower florets to bowl of the food processor with a blade attachment. Pulse until cauliflower resembles rice. Add in remaining florets and process again until cauliflower becomes rice-like. Set aside in a large bowl until ready to cook.
OR- cook already riced cauliflower!
Next prepare your stir fry sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the cashew butter, coconut aminos, ginger, garlic, warm water and red pepper flakes if desired. Set aside.
Now you’re ready to cook your stir fry: Add coconut oil to a large wok or pot and place over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add chicken and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook chicken for 5-6 minutes or until fully cooked and no longer pink. Once chicken is cooked, transfer to a bowl.
Add in the other ½ tablespoon of coconut oil to the skillet and reduce heat to medium. Add minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant, then add in green onions, red bell pepper, shredded carrot and broccoli florets. Stir fry for 5 minutes or until onions cook down and broccoli becomes a little tender. Reduce heat to low, add in chicken and your sauce, gently stirring to coat veggies. and cook for another few minutes while you make the cauliflower rice.
When veggies are cooking, make your cauliflower rice: Add ½ tablespoon coconut oil to a separate large skillet and place over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add in cauliflower rice and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
There are four servings: Serve ¼ of stir fry with about 1 cup of cauliflower rice. Garnish with green onion, cilantro and cashews. Yummmm!
