Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 14 oz package lo mein noodles
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 7 tbsp liquid aminos – divided (soy sauce if preferred)
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 2 green onions – diced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Boil the lo mein noodles according to package directions, drain and set aside. 
  2. Before starting the chicken, while the noodles are cooking, prepare your vegetables. Cut the broccoli florets free from the stems. Cut the red peppers into thin, julienned strips. Thinly shred the cabbage, and dice the green onion from the top down to just before the root. Set all vegetables aside until ready to use. 
  3. In a small saucepan, combine 6 tablespoons of liquid aminos, honey, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. 
  4. In a large skillet, (high-walled preferable), melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine with the oil, then add the chicken thighs and cook until done, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet, transferring to a plate, and set aside. 
  5. Add 1 tbsp. of the liquid aminos to the skillet. Add in the red pepper, broccoli, and snow peas. Cook until softened. Then add in the cabbage and green onion. Cook until softened. 
  6. Add the noodles and the chicken to the vegetables in the skillet. If the noodles are sticky, add a little sesame oil to break them up before adding to the skillet. Stir to combine all of the ingredients. 
  7. Just before serving, pour the sauce over the noodle mixture, stirring to coat everything well. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
