A few nights ago, we tried one of the recipes from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop newsletter. This chicken and broccoli stir-fry was simply delicious and bonus it meets the Clean criteria, which is extra special as we get set to embark on week 2 of Clean.
Chicken and Broccoli Recipe from Goop
Serves 1 as an entree or 2 as side dish
– 1 head of broccoli, cut into pieces
– 2 tablespoons sesame oil
– 4 oz boneless chicken, thinly sliced
– 2 tablespoons freshly minced ginger
– 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
– 2 tablespoons wheat-free tamari
– sesame seeds for garnish
Bring 6 cups of water (with a pinch of sea salt) to a simmer. Place the broccoli in the water and cook until tender (test with a fork), roughly 2-3 minutes. Remove from the water and cool. Set aside.
Start heating a wok or saute pan over medium high heat. Add sesame oil then saute the chicken pieces, being mindful to stir often.
Cook for 3 minutes then add the ginger and garlic. Cook until fragrant, then add in the blanched broccoli and tamari.
Cover and allow to steam for 2-3 minutes. Pour into a large bowl and top with sesame seeds before serving.
