For the Sauce:

  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup tamari gluten-free soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the Stir-Fry:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil divided
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup carrots shredded or thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions white and green parts
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a plate.
  • Add 1 tablespoon oil to the now empty skillet, followed by the broccoli, red pepper and carrots. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Add the green onions, ginger and garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan. Pour in the stir-fry sauce and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened and heated through. Serve with hot cooked rice. Enjoy!


Ingredient Notes
  • Tamari: Tamari is gluten-free soy sauce. Many soy sauces are made with a soybean/wheat blend, but tamari is made of 100% soy beans.
  • Red pepper flakes: I only add ¼ for a little flavor. It doesn’t make the sauce spicy – just more flavorful. Add more red pepper flakes if you want a spicier sauce!
