Sweet and Sour Chicken

Maintenance | Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup coconut aminos
1/3 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
1/3 cup no-sugar-added ketchup
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2- to 2-inch pieces
1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 red bell peppers, cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces
3/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks
2/3 cup pureed fresh pineapple
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder, mixed with 1/3 cup cold water
4 cups cooked cauliflower rice, for serving
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 scallions, thinly sliced
4 teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the coconut aminos, vinegar, ketchup, garlic, five-spice powder, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, without stirring for 2 minutes. Flip the chicken pieces over and cook for 2 minutes more Stir in the onion, bell peppers, and pineapple chunks Cook for 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in the sauce and the pineapple puree. Add 1/4 cup warm water and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

  4. Remove the chicken and vegetables with a slotted spoon and put them on a plate, leaving just the liquid in the skillet. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken and veggies to the skillet and stir to coat with the sauce.

  5. To serve, divide the cauliflower rice among four plates. Top with the chicken. Garnish each serving with cilantro, scallions, and sesame seeds.

Note: Buy cauliflower rice fresh or frozen from teh supermarket, or coarsely chop fresh cauliflower florets in a food processor until they're broken down into pieces the size of rice.
