This One Pot Keto Sesame Chicken and Broccoli is easy to make, only calls for inexpensive, real food ingredients, and best f all, it only dirties one pan!



One pan meals are also one of my favorite ways to meal prep since you can just throw your favorite ingredients together in one pan and have meals ready to go for the week. I’m a HUGE fan of prep and I credit meal prepping as a major factor in helping me get healthier and lose weight when I was first starting out.



This One Pot Keto Sesame Chicken and Broccoli recipe helps satisfy those cravings while still allowing me to keep my health goals intact.

ONE POT KETO SESAME CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI
I love cooking with sesame oil because you need so little to pack a huge flavor punch. This recipe uses coconut aminos but if you’re not doing a Whole30 you can use regular soy sauce, or tamari (gluten free soy sauce) The arrowroot powder in this recipe is optional but I love using it to thicken up the sauce a bit.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 12 ounces broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos, or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (I use this brand)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon arrowroot powder (get it here)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds, plus extra for garnish
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, for garnish
  • Green onions, sliced, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the broccoli florets in a microwave safe bowl with 1 tablespoon of water and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 2 minutes until the broccoli is just becoming tender.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the coconut aminos and arrowroot powder and set aside
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the avocado oil and garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken to the skillet along with the salt and pepper, and sauté until cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  5. Once the chicken is just about done, add the sesame oil and broccoli to pan and sauté for an additional minute before pouring the coconut amino mixture over top.
  6. Sauté for 1 to 2 more minutes until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  7. Garnish with red pepper flakes, sesame seeds and green onions, before serving.
