  • 1 - 1 ¼ lbs. chicken breasts pounded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup bell pepper cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 cup carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red onion cut into bite-sized pieces

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • cup water divided
  • cup soy sauce gluten-free, or Tamari sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp. ginger paste
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch


  1. In a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon oil and cubed chicken. Sauté for 5-6 minutes or until chicken is almost cooked through. Remove chicken from skillet and let drain on a plate.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil with peppers, broccoli, carrots, and onion. Sauté for 6-7 minutes over medium heat or until vegetables are almost tender. Add 1-2 tablespoons water as needed to prevent the vegetables form sticking to the pan.
  3. While chicken and vegetables are cooking, start preparing the teriyaki sauce in a medium-sized bowl. Combine ¼ cup water, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, honey, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. Whisk to combine.
  4. In a separate small bowl whisk together remaining 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch.
  5. Add teriyaki sauce and chicken to the skillet with the vegetables and cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken. Add cornstarch slurry to skillet and cook for 1-2 more minutes, or until the sauce has reached your desired consistency.
  6. Serve chicken teriyaki stir-fry over rice with chopped green onions and enjoy!
