  • 1/2 cup onion, diced

  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic

  • 3 large organic chicken breasts, trimmed and cubed

The Instructions

  • In a large bowl, marinate chicken with 1-2 tbsp oil, salt and pepper.

  • In a large, heated skillet, add diced onion and garlic, and cook until onions are translucent, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken and spread out evenly so it can brown.

  • Once fully cooked, add the: aminos, honey, sesame oil and water, and stir.

  • In a small bowl, add a dash of water and 1 tbsp arrowroot or cornstarch. This will thicken the sauce. Stir until dissolved, then add to skillet. Give everything well and let cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, covered.
