Coconut Nectar Chicken & Pineapple Stir Fry

Stir-fry is a one-pan meal that comes together quickly and can be a great way to get picky eaters to try more veggies. The key to a successful stir-fry is to cook everything in small batches. Have a big bowl ready, then add each round of cooked items to it as you go. Toss with a delicious sauce–like this one, made from coconut aminos, coconut nectar and a dash of cayenne pepper–and let the chopsticks begin clicking!

Sauce

2 Tbsp. coconut aminos
½ Tbsp. coconut nectar
Pinch of cayenne pepper, sea salt, black pepper

1 cup pineapple, cubed (fresh or organic canned)
1 lb. organic chicken, sliced thinly

3. Add 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil to hot pan, toss in bok choy and carefully cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan and put in bowl (you will be adding all your veggies to this bowl).

4. Add more grapeseed oil to pan, then add broccoli and carrots to cook about 2 minutes until tender crisp. Place broccoli and carrots in bowl with bok choy.

5. Add more grapeseed oil to pan then cook pineapple chunks for 1 minute to brown, then add to bowl with veggies.
