One pot keto sesame chicken and broccoli

I love cooking with sesame oil because you need so little to pack a huge flavor punch. This recipe uses coconut aminos but if you’re not doing a Whole30 you can use regular soy sauce, or tamari (gluten free soy sauce) The arrowroot powder in this recipe is optional but I love using it to thicken up the sauce a bit.
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos, or soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 ½ teaspoon arrowroot powder (get it here)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (I use this brand)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 12 ounces broccoli florets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, for garnish
  • Green onions, sliced, for garnish

  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the avocado oil and garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken to the skillet along with the salt and pepper, and sauté until cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  5. Once the chicken is just about done, add the sesame oil and broccoli to pan and sauté for an additional minute before pouring the coconut amino mixture over top.
