Ingredients

  • 4 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 stalk green onion
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cashews

Sauce

  • 3 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root, fresh
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar, rice
  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

  • Chop broccoli and red bell pepper into small pieces. Slice green onions. Mince garlic and grate ginger. Spiralize the zucchini.

  • Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. Toss with 2 tablespoons of corn starch in a plastic bag just before cooking.
  • In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Saute chicken until most edges are no longer pink. Add broccoli and red bell pepper and stir fry for 5 minutes.
