kmi1497

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb organic chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 red organic pepper, diced
1 yellow organic pepper, diced
1 orange organic pepper, diced
9 oz snow peas
1 tbsp ginger, minced
1/3 cup raw cashews
1 tsp pepper flakes, optional
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cups uncooked brown rice

For the sauce-
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
4 tbsp soy sauce, gluten free
2 tbsp unrefined sugar
1/4 cup water
3 tsp arrowroot powder, or cornstarch

Directions:
-Cook brown rice according to package instructions. I do mine in a rice maker which you can use for quinoa too. Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
-In a large non-stick skillet place the olive oil over medium to high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes. Add the peppers and ginger and cook stirring occasionally for another 5 minutes until everything is almost cooked. Add the snow peas and cook for another minute.
-Add the cashews and sauce to the skillet and cook for 1 minute over high heat until the sauce thickens. Serve over the brown rice while still warm.

Enjoy!
