Stir fries are one of my favorite ways to power up on superfoods. Not only is it typically a quick weeknight meal, but it's so easy to add an abundance of colors and nutrients. Just a touch of sweetness with Comvita Multifloral Manuka Honey not only adds a depth of flavor, but also a depth of nutrients. Sometimes eating so many fibrous foods at once can cause discomfort, but the honey helps to support digestion in a hearty, healthy meal like this one!
How to Make Sriracha-Honey Chicken Stir Fry
This recipe serves 4-6 people
For the sauce:
- 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoon Comvita Multifloral Manuka Honey
- 2 cloves garlic, grated
For the stir fry:
- 1 ½ pounds chicken breast, diced
- Salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste
- 1 ½ tablespoons ghee or grass-fed butter, divided
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 small onion, sliced and quartered
- 3 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced on the diagonal
- 1 pound green beans, trimmed
For serving: black rice (or brown, basmati, quinoa, etc.), toasted sesame seeds, crushed dry roasted cashews or peanuts.
Whisk together the sauce mixture and set aside. Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sauté with ½ Tablespoon ghee/butter for 5-7 minutes until browned. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Add the remaining ghee/butter, sesame oil and veggies. Sauté 5-7 minutes. Return chicken to pan, pour sauce mixture over everything and stir to coat. Cover and simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and carrots are tender crisp. Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds and nuts. (Vegetarian: substitute baby lima beans or butter beans for the chicken.)
