Make This Now: Ginger Dragon Chicken Stir Fry

It’s always a good day when Frieda’s Produce sends a box of goodies.

Sometimes it’s eats I’m familiar with, like those delicious Stokes purple sweet potatoes. But often I get new fruits and veggies that push me outside my comfort zone, in a good way.

This most recent package contained fresh ginger and Green Dragon apples, plus dried jackfruit. All new to my kitchen. All amazing.

I baked the sweet potato, slapped a ton of Nuttzo on that puppy and called it heaven.

But for the ginger and apples, I decided to go the savory and spicy route with a chicken stir-fry made up on the fly.

It turned out awesome enough that I felt a little sad when eating the last bite of the last dish of leftovers. Have you been there, too?!

This Paleo, gluten-free dish has a great blend of sweet, crunchy, and a little “bite” from the fresh ginger.

So yeah, I’ll be making this again soon!

But first, it’s time to share with you all!

Ginger Dragon Chicken Stir-Fry

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, sliced into inch thick pieces
  • 3 Green Dragon apples (or any green variety if you can’t find Dragons), quartered and then cut into matchsticks

  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut oil
  • Sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste

 

 

Directions

1. In a wok or large skillet, heat on high the coconut oil, adding in chicken and ginger once it gets hot enough. Turn chicken occasionally, cooking 2 minutes or so.
