Thyme To Make Homemade Chicken And Broccoli
Cut 3 boneless chicken thighs into cubes. *Can also use chicken breasts.*
1
Place chicken in a ziplock bag.
2
Sprinkle gluten free flour or arrowroot powder onto chicken and “shake” the bag so it’s evenly distributed. (If you’re not GF, use regular flour.)
3
Just like this. Add flour as needed, making sure the chicken is sufficiently coated.
4
Your bag should look like this afterwards.
5
Add 1 cup of gluten free soy sauce or tamari to a bowl. (If you are not GF, feel free to use regular soy sauce.)
6
To that, add 3/4 cup of Grade A maple syrup.
7
Add 1 TBSP of sesame oil.
8
Add 1 TBSP of rice wine vinegar.
9
Whisk it up! Taste the sauce and add more soy sauce or maple syrup as needed.
10
Now onto the broccoli. Cut fresh broccoli into florets, enough for 2 cups. This is me doing it with one hand.
11
Add broccoli to steamer and steam for 5-7 minutes. Broccoli should NOT be soft, so check on it often. When finished, remove from heat and set aside.
12
Add avocado oil to a pan that’s on medium-high heat.
13
Add chicken in batches so that it is not overcrowded.
14
Cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 5 minutes.
15
Transfer cooked chicken to a bowl while their friends are having their turn in the pan.
16
Add all chicken back in pan and shake around for two minutes. Then, add the sauce you made. Mix so that sauce gets all over the chicken.
17
Meanwhile, create a thickening agent (I’m using arrowroot instead of cornstarch) by combining 1 heaping TBSP with 4 TBSP of drinking water.
18
Add that broccoli into the party.
19
Mix and watch the magic of the sauce happen.
20
No seriously, look at this.
21
Place on top of rice, quinoa, or buckwheat and enjoy!
