Servings 4 servings
- 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
- 1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
- salt and pepper
- 2 cups broccoli
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger
- ½ cup soy sauce
- 1 cup water
- ⅓ c sukrin gold sweetener
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Heat a skillet on medium high heat with 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil.
Season the chicken thighs with a sprinkle of both salt and pepper, then add to the skillet once the oil is hot. Fry for a couple of minutes until the bottoms have browned then flip them over and do the same with the other side.
Peel the garlic and ginger and grate both with a fine grater. Add them to a medium bowl and whisk in soy sauce, water, sukrin gold and apple cider vinegar.
Once the chicken has been seared on both sides, add the sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes, flipping the chicken half way through, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 180°.
Remove the chicken thighs from the skillet using a slotted scoop and place in a bowl. Whisk sesame oil with xanthan gum and whisk into the teriyaki sauce. Using two forks, shred the thighs into chunks and return them to the thickened sauce with the broccoli. Give them a stir and cover with the lid. Cook for 2 minutes.
Serve this deliciousness with cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.
