  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos or 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 garlic gloves minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp tapioca flour or arrowroute flour
  • 500 g chicken strips
  • 1 cup broccoli


  • Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small pot and stir on medium heat until it thickens
  • In a cooking pan, add 1 tsp olive oil & 2 tbsp of the teriyaki sauce to coat the pan
  • Add the chicken strips and sauté till cooked
  • Add the broccoli & pour the rest of the sauce. Lower heat and allow to simmer & mix well for the sauce to coat all the veggies & chicken
  • Enjoy over rice & sprinkle of sesame seeds or spring onion

P.S: I didn’t cook the broccoli because I like it with a little crunch- but if you are dealing with gut issues or have a hard time digesting raw vegetables – you can steam the broccoli before adding into the pan!
