Chinese Chicken Broccoli : Paleo Friendly

Paleo Chinese Chicken and Broccoli

Paleo Chinese Chicken and Broccoli

 

Ingredients

 

4 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets

4 teaspoons canola oil

1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1 cup 1/4-inch-thick half-moon slices onion

2 tablespoons minced ginger (about a 1-inch piece)

6 cloves garlic, minced

4 whole small dried chiles or 1/2 teaspoon chile oil

1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut in 1-inch cubes

4 teaspoons cashew butter

3 tablespoons tamari

1/2 cup unsalted whole cashews

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

Directions

 

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.

 

Heat the canola and sesame oils in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the onions, ginger, garlic and chiles and sauté until the onions are soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

 

In a small bowl, whisk the cashew butter and tamari and pour into the skillet, stirring to remove any lumps. Add the chicken back in the pan, stir in the broccoli and cashews, and stir to heat through and completely coat with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper, then serve.
