This recipe is really good, and Alee and I both love it. It is now one of our go to meals. Like most things I make, this is flexible, so make it your own! I also included a .doxc file if want to print it, Better than Sweet (Should you need and .rtf or a .pdf. let me know).
Better than Sweet-Fire Chicken
- 1 pound chicken breast
- 2 TBS Tapioca Flower
- 2 TBS Olive Oil
- 1 Onion (chopped)
- 3 Cloves Garlic (minced)
- 4 Stalks Celery
- 1 Yellow Pepper
- ½ Cup Diced Fresh Pinapple
- Splash of Chicken Bone Broth
- 2 TBS Coconut Aminos
- Salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes.
- Hot peppers of your choice (and add according to your taste—I like spicy so 2-3 chopped jalapenos is good for me, but if we have company I tone it down).
- Snow Peas (I did not measure them, I just tossed in a package I got from Aldi).
*This recipe cooks really fast so have all your veggies cut up and ready to go or you will end up with some things over-cooked and some under-cooked!
Brown chicken in olive oil with onion, garlic, season with salt pepper and red pepper flakes (I won’t put a measurement for the seasoning, you know what you like—remember your red pepper flakes are spicy and you also are adding other hot peppers so take that into account when seasoning. Also, they tend to get spicier as they cook).
Once onion starts to look transparent, add peppers, pineapple, and celery and a splash of Bone Broth (if you don’t have bone broth an clean regular broth will do—this will give you a bit of a sauce when you are done).
(If you want to add broccoli or cauliflower, add them before the celery, peppers and pineapple because they take longer to cook).
Add in your coconut aminos. I would not recommend skipping the coconut aminos because they really add the flavor needed in my opinion.
Add in tapioca flour (arrowroot starch would probably work too). This is optional, but it will thicken the juices to leave a nice sauce coating.
You can adjust seasoning if needed, or if you want it sweeter, add some more pineapple.
Add the snow peas last! They cook really fast, and I know I like them to still be a little crisp. I stir them in then turn off the heat and cover for about 2-3 minutes. Cook longer if you like them softer.
