This organic chicken stir-fry recipe is quick, easy and delicious and will take you less than 30 minutes!


  • 1 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp grass fed butter
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped broccoli (about 3 clusters)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small carrot, peeled into pieces (I just used a potato peeler)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp organic liquid aminos or coconut aminos (gluten free options) or organic soy sauce
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • pepper to taste
  • serve with rice


  1. Start cooking the rice according to the directions. (Note, I always add salt to the rice, taste so much better)! If you are cooking 1 cup of rice I usually add 1 tsp of salt.
  2. While the rice is cooking, preheat a sauté pan on medium heat for about a minute.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of butter to the pan.
  4. Brown the chicken and onions together for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the mushrooms and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Add broccoli, garlic, carrot peels, chicken stock and soy sauce. Season with pepper.
  7. Cover and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes.
  8. If the sauce needs thickened, mix together 1tsp of arrowroot powder with 1 tsp water. Stir and add to dish.
  9. Allow to simmer until the sauce thickens a bit (about 1 minute).
  10. Remove from heat and server immediately over rice.
