For the Marinade
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
For the Stir Fry
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 large carrots, peeled and julienned
1 large red bell pepper, julienned
1 large yellow bell pepper, julienned
1 cup snow peas
8 ounces button mushrooms, sliced thinly
2 cups frozen broccoli, defrosted
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
4 cups cooked brown rice or cauliflower rice
Sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds, for serving
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the light soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Add in the chicken, and then toss to coat. Let marinate in the fridge while you chop your veggies.
When you have all your veggies ready to go, heat a large wok/big pan over high heat. Add one tablespoon of the olive oil.
Drain the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Add the chicken to the wok and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about five minutes. Remove the chicken to a plate.
Pour the remaining olive oil into the wok, and then add in the garlic. Cook for a minute or until fragrant. Add in the carrots, bell peppers, snow peas, and mushrooms. Cook until bright in color and just crisp cooked, about three minutes.
Add in the broccoli and cooked chicken. Reduce heat to low.
Whisk the arrowroot powder into the reserved marinade, and then pour into the wok/big pan. Bring to a simmer and cook until thick, about five minutes. Serve on top of brown rice, topped with green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
