Step 1
In a large wok or lidded skillet, cover the Broccoli (4 cups) with 2 cups water. Bring to a simmer over high heat, reduce to medium, then cover and cook until vibrant and tender, 1-2 minutes. Drain in a colander. Rinse and dry the skillet.
Step 2
Meanwhile, whisk together the white of the Egg (1) , Corn Starch (2 Tbsp) and Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Add the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (1 lb) and toss to combine.
Step 3
Heat Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp) in the cleaned skillet over high heat. When hot, add the chicken in an even layer. Cook until golden brown on the first side, about 2 minute.
Step 4
Stir fry until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Step 5
Add Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp) and stir fry the Red Chili Pepper (1) and white part of the Scallions (2) until lightly charred, 2 minutes.
Step 6
Stir in the Garlic (1 clove) and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
Step 7
Add the chicken back to the pan, along with the Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce (1/4 cup) , Toasted Sesame Oil (1 tsp) , Honey (2 Tbsp) and Sesame Seeds (2 Tbsp) . Simmer until the sauce has thickened, 2 minutes. Stir in the broccoli and green part of the scallion. Serve over brown rice or quinoa.
