First things first, I love Asian food. Love it. However I get migraines from the yummy sauces. Sadly, even coconut aminos, fish sauce and Bragg’s trigger migraines in me.

So, I am always trying to come up with knock-off recipes that will give me that same satisfaction.

This stir-fry does not have a spicy or sweet-sour sauce. It has a tender/buttery chicken breast set off by crunchy veggies.

It is so tasty that my husband actually requested that I make a repeat of it this week (I love it when that happens) 😉

One of the key parts to making this dish delish is the preparation of your chicken. You will butterfly the breasts which is a very easy process of making a chicken breast thin and tender.

To Butterfly

lay your chicken breast on a cutting board

Cut the chicken breast (lengthwise through to ~ 1/2 inch from the other side)

Open the chicken (it will be lying flat like a “butterfly”)

Cover with plastic and use the flat side of a meat mallet to pound chicken to desired thinness

***For this recipe****

Go ahead and cut the chicken breast all the way through, then follow directions above. Then cut the chicken breasts into bite size pieces


2.5 pounds Chicken Breast (follow directions above)

3 Cups chopped broccoli florets

2 Cups chopped carrots

1/2 Cup chopped shallots

2 Tbsp sliced green onion

3 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1.5 tsp Sea Salt

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

4 Tbsp Ghee

Use either cauliflower rice or white rice


In one pan melt 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil + 1 Tbsp Ghee over medium

Add Broccoli, Carrots, Shallots, Green Onion, 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Sea Salt

Stir-fry on low to medium-low for ~ 15 minutes (you want veggies to be tender but still crunchy)

In a Separate Pan or Skillet (I had so much chicken that I had to use 2 extra skillets)

Melt 3 Tbsp Ghee in large skillet on medium high

Add chicken, lower temperature to medium-low and let it cook on one side for 5 minutes (do not stir or move it)

Sprinkle 1/4 tsp Sea Salt and 1 tsp garlic powder on top of chicken as it cooks

Flip chicken and let it cook for another 5 minutes

Sprinkle 1/4 tsp Sea Salt and 1 tsp garlic powder on top of chicken as it cooks

Then take the Chicken and mix it into the veggies. Pour the liquid reserve from chicken into the veggies (including any scraping from pan).

Mix cauliflower rice or white rice into the stir fry until warm (a couple of minutes).

Enjoy ❤
