Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 32oz (2lbs) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • ½ cup chicken bone broth

  • ⅓ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener

  • ¼ cup tomato sauce

  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp wheat-free tamari, or ⅓ cup coconut aminos

  • 1 tbsp coconut vinegar or apple cider vinegar

  • ¾ tsp crushed red pepper

  • 1 clove garlic, smashed to a paste

  • ¼ tsp grated fresh ginger Scallions, sliced on the diagonal, for garnish

  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

  • 1 batch Zero-Carb Fried “Rice”

Directions

  • In a wok or large cast-iron skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Using a paper towel, pat the chicken dry. Season generously with salt on all sides.
  • Place the chicken in the wok and stir-fry until golden brown on all sides, about 4 minutes. Set aside after removing from the wok. Whisk together the broth, sweetener, tomato sauce, tamari, vinegar, crushed red pepper, garlic, and ginger in a wok. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until reduced and thickened.
  • Return the chicken to the wok and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is thoroughly warmed. Serve with fried rice and garnished with scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. To reheat, heat for about 5 minutes in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
