Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

Enjoy this savory and slightly sweet version of traditional chicken stir fry flavored with ginger and lemon essential oils.  Use whatever vegetables you have on hand.  Serve with rice and a green salad dressed with Ginger Soy Dressing using recipe below.

I put this together just before teaching an essential oils cooking class for a few friends.  It was the perfect excuse to have a lovely ladies night gathering that brought both old and new friends together.  There’s nothing better than good food and friendship!

(Serves 6)


Sauce Ingredients:

In a large frying pan or wok, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add onion and other vegetables, and sauté for a few minutes.

In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, and ginger essential oil.

Add chicken, soy sauce mixture, curry powder, salt, and pepper to the vegetables. Stir to make sure everything is mixed well. Cook until chicken is cooked through.

In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until smooth.

Once chicken is cooked, add broccoli, cover, and let steam for a minute or two. Remove from heat, and transfer the chicken and vegetables to a clean bowl, leaving the soy sauce mixture in the pan.

Pour the sauce mixture into the pan with the soy sauce mixture, and cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

Pour the chicken and vegetables back into the pan, and evenly coat with the sauce.

Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds or thinly sliced green onions.
