Chicken Stir-Fry with Basil

Serves 4

A stir-fry is always a quick-and-easy dinner option, and chicken with vegetables is especially delicious when simply flavored with basil and dried orange zest. Jazz it up even more with a bit of mirin (rice cooking wine), if desired. Serve over Jasmine Brown Rice Pilaf for a satisfying meal.

Method: 

Ingredient Options: Use Tamari soy sauce instead of liquid aminos if you do not require a gluten-free recipe.

Heat one tablespoon oil in a wok or large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, mushrooms and orange peel and stir fry until fragrant and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add broccoli and carrots and stir fry another 3 to 5 minutes or until broccoli is bright green and just tender. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Heat remaining oil in the same pan. Add chicken cubes and stir fry for 5 minutes or until completely cooked. Add vegetables back to skillet with chicken. Add basil and stir fry one minute longer. Season to taste with liquid aminos or soy sauce.
