1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 heaping cups broccoli floret
1 cup red bell peppers, diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup unsalted dry-roasted whole cashews
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (I use Bragg liquid Amino’s- found in organic section of grocery store)
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Asian chili garlic sauce
Add cornstarch, salt, pepper, chicken to a gallon size zip lock bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken evenly.
In a large skillet on medium-high heat, add the oils, chicken, and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir every minute or so, so all sides cook evenly. Chicken should be about 80-90% cooked through.
Add the broccoli and bell peppers and stir to combine. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and chicken is cooked through; stir intermittently. While vegetables cook, make the sauce
To a medium bowl add the soy sauce, garlic, honey, rice wine vinegar, chili-garlic sauce, and whisk to combine; set aside.
Add the cashews to the skillet and stir to combine.
Add the sauce and stir to combine. Allow sauce to simmer over medium-low heat for 1 to 2 minutes.

It’s not always easy to get in your greens right?! I know I personally struggle at times! So I made up something quick and easy to make up for the lost veggies!!

Tell me this doesn’t look easy and yummy?? Ok, sometimes when you blend food like this, it looks like your eating pureed food for grandma or grandpa who doesn’t have teeth lol, but it actually is really good!!
This is a perfect meal you can make for you or your entire family for some good chicken salad sandwiches or even to have on rice cakes or crackers!! I’ve tried it every way and it all tasted amazing!!
2 Grilled Chicken breasts cut into cubes
2 cups raw spinach
1 whole Avocado
2 TBSP Safflower Mayo (Found in organic section of grocery store)… This is the first time I ever had this and you will never go back to the unhealthy mayo or miracle whip again!
2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Get out that blender of yours (I use a Ninja) and pour ALL ingredients in blender and blend until mixture is completely blended. You may have to stop and mix it a little so all the ingredients get a chance in the blender!
Add mixture to either Bread, wrap, crackers, rice cake, or heck, you can even eat plain!!
