2-3 lbs diced chicken breast, 12-16 oz organic fresh broccoli, 2 garlic cloves, 4-5 large sliced carrots, pepper flakes, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce, 1/3 cup reduced soy sauce,1/3 cup cold water, 3-4 teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch, 1/4 cup honey or unrefined sugar.
In a small bowl mix the Teriyaki sauce ingredients. If you are just making the sauce for future consumption follow this step otherwise follow the next paragraphs. In a small sauce pan, over medium to low heat, heat the sauce until thicken stirring occasionally. About 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool and store it in a glass air tight container in the refrigerator.
In a large heavy bottom saute pan, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil. Add the chicken and carrots and cook stirring occasionally until almost tender, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook further for another minute. While the chicken is cooking, place the broccoli on a safe microwave dish and microwave for 6-7 minutes. Depending on how strong your microwave is you may need less time. My microwave is not too powerful so I use 7 minutes but 3-4 minutes may be enough in yours. Add the Teriyaki sauce from the bowl to the chicken and carrots and stir for about 1-2 minutes or until it thickens. Turn heat off and add the broccoli and pepper flakes if using. Stir to combine. Serve over brown rice or rice noodles.
