What you need

  • 60 ml soy sauce (gluten free)
  • 240 ml chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 450 g chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1 large zucchini, cut in thick half-moons
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp spring onion, to garnish


  • In a large bowl add the soy sauce, chicken broth, corn starch, mirin, sugar, and sesame oil and whisk until everything is completely dissolved.   In a large skillet, add 2 tsp. coconut oil and the chicken, about 2-3 minutes on each side, on medium-high heat. Then set aside on a plate.   Using the same skillet, add in the remaining 1 tsp. of oil, garlic and ginger and sauté for 30-45 seconds until fragrant, but being careful not to burn it.   Stir the garlic and ginger well and add in the earlier prepared sauce. Whisk well.   Simmer the sauce for 1 minute, then add in the zucchini and continue cooking for 2 more minutes, until thickened and the zucchini is tender-crisp.   Remove from the heat, add in the chicken, and stir until well coated. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions if desired. Key features • Gluten free • Dairy free • Low carb • Meal prep • High protein • Quick and easy dinner
