Quick Weeknight Stir-Fry with Coconut Aminos

In Dinner, Paleo Friendly, Recipe by Morgan Paris2 Comments

**Guest Post from Morgan Paris Fitness**

This extremely simple chicken and vegetable Stir-Fry recipe will leave your taste-buds feeling like you slaved over the stove when in fact you threw together a package of organic chicken (make high quality meat a priority!) and some pre-cut frozen veggies in a pan and pushed “go.”

You know the nights you get home from your workday and you are just so pooped it feels like it may be easier to eat an entire bag of chips than take time to make a healthy dinner?  It’s not a pretty sight… I get whiny and draggy and I’m pretty sure my fiance (yes, we just got engaged this week, I am on cloud 9!) wants to stick me in the frying pan right along with the veggies.

My favorite part of this dish, besides the fact that it is healthy, is the sweet and salty flavors of  Coconut Aminos. You can buy this alternative to soy sauce online or at Whole Foods. Not only does this replace soy (for those who are sensitive or who follow a Paleo diet), this baby is jam packed with healthy amino acids which are the fundamental building blocks of our tissues.

I hope this recipe will become a staple in your yummy food repertoire for the nights you need to make something quick that will still fuel you in a healthy way!

  2. The recipe calls for 2 TBS of coconut aminos but the directions call for them both when cooking the veggies and then again when adding the cooked chicken to the cooked veggies …

    I prefer to season the chicken with cayenne, ginger powder, kosher salt, black pepper, coriander seed and lemon juice before cooking. For veggies I do broccoli, red bell pepper and water chestnuts. Delicious!!
