This chicken & veggie stir fry dinner got the approval from my husband so I feel safe to share this recipe on my blog. I had without chicken but added in a little for my husband and the kids.
This stir fry is gluten free and loaded with veggies. It can be served family style as well which is a great way to serve dinner for picky eaters.
Place the dish in the middle of the table and pass around so everyone takes a little and puts on their plates. If you have a picky eater you can always deconstruct the meal for them and have them put a little of the mix form on their plate as well.

3/4 cup Coconut Aminos
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar (I only used 1-2 tbsp- can also use coconut sugar)
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoons cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons water
1-2 small organic boneless skinless chicken breasts (use less if trying to eat more plants & less animal protein)
1 (12 oz.) bag stir-fry vegetables (Can be found in the produce section- can also use fresh that you either chop yourself or already prepped kind)
3 cups cooked brown or quinoa or cauliflower rice. I used brown rice. For a quicker version you can use the frozen organic brown rice that’s already cooked.

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
Combine coconut aminos, ½ cup water, brown sugar, ginger and garlic in a small saucepan and cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove lid and cook for one minute once boiling.
Meanwhile, stir together the corn starch and 2 tablespoons of water in a separate dish until smooth. Once sauce is boiling, add mixture to the saucepan and stir to combine. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken then remove from heat.
Place the chicken breasts in the prepared pan. Pour one cup of the sauce over top of chicken. Place chicken in oven and bake 35 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and shred chicken in the dish using two forks.
*Meanwhile, steam or cook the vegetables according to package directions.
Add the cooked vegetables and rice to the casserole dish with the chicken. Add most of the remaining sauce, reserving a bit to drizzle over the top when serving. Gently toss everything together in the casserole dish until combined. Return to oven and cook 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Drizzle each serving with remaining sauce. Enjoy!
