Chicken & Broccoli Stir-Fry over Sweet Potato

Ingredients for 3 servings

* Optional Substitution Note
  • 1 lb lean chicken thigh, diced into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 5 cup broccoli, chopped into pieces
  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • Sauce
    • 5 tablespoons low sodium soy
    • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
    • 1 tablespoon sriracha
    • 1 tablespoon arrowroot + water
    • 1 tablespoon ginger
    • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons water
  • Sesame seed garnish – 3 tablespoons


Step 1

Set oven to 400F.  Poke a few holes in the sweet potato using a fork or knife.  Place them on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes, or until the potato is cooked through and can be sliced open.

Step 2

Add the ingredients for the sauce to a bowl or cup and stir.  Set aside.

Step 3

Set a large wok on medium-high heat.  Once hot, spray with avocado oil and add chicken.  Let the chicken rest in the wok untouched for about 2 -3 minutes or until sear marks appear.  Toss the chicken in the skillet then add the bel pepper and cook for another 2 minutes.

Step 4

Toss in the broccoli and toss everything together.  Reduce the heat of the pan to low, then make a hole in the middle of the skillet.  Pour the sauce in the hole and stir immediately to prevent the sauce from getting slimy.  You may also need to remove from the wok from the heat completely during this step if it is too hot.

Step 5

Slice open the sweet potato and flake the flesh with a fork.  Evenly divide the stir-fry among the sweet potatoes and garnish with sesame seeds.

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
