Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • ½ medium-sized white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 9 oz package of snow peas
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp white pepper or black pepper
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional for heat
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • ½ tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add snow peas, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper and continue to cook, stirring, until the snow peas are slightly softened, about 3 more minutes. Add coconut aminos, sesame oil, fish sauce, rice vinegar and bring to a simmer so that the sauce reduces a bit, 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in shredded chicken and the toasted sesame seeds and toss to coat the chicken evenly and just heat the chicken through, about 2 more minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    Really easy and oh so good!!! 4 c. of chicken was a lot and I thought it needed more vegetables so I added chopped asparagus to 8 oz. of sugar snap peas, doubled the sauce and served the whole thing over cauliflower rice. We all loved it and just finished the leftovers for lunch!

      That came together so quickly! Only had string beans, but it was super tasty and of course topped it off with sriracha sauce.

    This recipe was 1) so dang tasty and 2) so quick to put together. I used string beans and had to add some cauliflower rice to get a good ratio of vegetables: chicken. The dish was even better the second day!
