  1. 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. salt and pepper, to taste
  3. 1 tbsp. arrowroot starch
  4. 2 tbsp. avocado or olive oil
  5. 1/2 white onion, sliced thinly
  6. 2 baby bok choy, ends removed and cut in half
  7. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  9. 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  10. 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  11. 1 tsp. fish sauce
  12. 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional for spice)
  13. 8 oz. can water chestnuts, drained
  1. Slice chicken breasts against the grain into thin slices. Place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add arrowroot and toss until coated evenly.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When very hot, Add chicken and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. You will likely need to do this in two batches, overcrowding the pan isn't ideal as your chicken won't get that good sear on it. As chicken is done cooking, set aside on a plate.
  3. In the same skillet, add the onion. Saute for about 3 minutes, you may need to add an additional tbsp. of oil if you skillet is dry from cooking the chicken.
  4. Add the bok choy, garlic, and water Chestnuts. Continue to saute until bok choy is tender, about 3 more minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to medium. Add the ginger, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, fish sauce, and crushed red pepper (if using). Stir to combine and let simmer until sauce thickens and reduces, about 3-5 more minutes.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

    1. Coconut Aminos is a paleo alternative to soy sauce! Not a direct swap, but similar, and adds umami flavor to recipes. You can learn more here.
