Ingredients

Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic grated or minced finely
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

For the Stir Fry

  • 1 teaspoon light sesame oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 head of bok choy washed and cut into 1 inch strips
  • 2 large carrots peeled in strips or 1/2 cup matchstick carrots
  • 5-6 green onions diced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro if desired

Instructions

  • Stir together all the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  • Heat sesame oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add in chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes. Add in bok choy, carrots, green onions, and sesame seeds. Stir continuously for 3 minutes and then add in sauce. Cook until sauce has coated the chicken and vegetables and heated through.
  • Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro if desired.

Notes

  • Be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari to keep this gluten-free.
  • Be sure to use LIGHT sesame oil instead of dark sesame oil for this stir-fry--also be sure your sesame oil does not smell rancid before using.
  • Sesame oil needs to be kept in the refrigerator to remain fresh.
