Print Recipe


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1” chunks
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot starch plus more as needed to coat
  • 1 egg whisked
  • oil for pan
  • For the sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 6 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • Sesame seeds & green onions for garnish


  • Add whisked egg to a medium bowl; add 1/2 cup arrowroot starch to medium plastic food storage bag or medium bowl.
  • Add chicken to bowl with egg and toss evenly in egg to coat. Transfer chicken to bag or bowl with arrowroot and toss to coat. I prefer a bag here as it makes it much easier to coat the chicken evenly. Remove chicken pieces from arrowroot, discarding excess.
  • Add sauce ingredients into a small bowl and mix .
  • Heat a thin layer oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken pieces and cook without moving until golden on the bottom; flip and cook without moving until golden brown on the other side. Stir and continue cooking chicken pieces until golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes depending on size.
  • Pour over sauce and stir. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, a couple minutes. Top with sesame seeds and sliced green onions
  • Serve with steamed broccoli
