Paleo & Whole30 Cashew Chicken

12 Feb

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have coconut aminos!  I ordered mine from amazon and plan to use them in any dish that would normally call for soy sauce.  Not only is soy bad news (pro-inflammatory), but my sister-in-law to be is allergic.  Nice to finally have a true substitute!  This dish is easy, fast, and delicious!  Even John had two servings.  Win!

Paleo & Whole 30 Cashew Chicken

Paleo & Whole 30 Cashew Chicken


3-4 tbl. grape seed oil

1 1/2 pound thinly sliced chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces

1 cup raw cashews

1 sweet onion, sliced thin

2 green bell peppers, chopped

1 head broccoli, cut into florets

4-5 cloves garlic, minced

3 tbl. raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup + 2 tbl. raw coconut aminos

Kosher salt



Mix together unfiltered apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos, and 1 tsp. salt and set aside.  Heat grape seed oil in a large pot over medium high heat.  Season chicken with salt and pepper.  When oil is hot add chicken followed by onion.  Add a little salt to season the onion and help it sweat.  Add the garlic and sauté the chicken with the onion until the chicken is no longer pink.  Add the coconut amino sauce, cashews, peppers, and broccoli.  Season with salt and pepper and sauté until peppers and broccoli are crisp tender.

    What would you say the serving size is on this recipe? It was great. I added red peppers to it too.

      Thank you for the feedback!!! I find that, for me, this recipe makes approximately 5 servings. Can be more or less on an individual basis. If you’re someone who prefers 6 small meals a day then this might be more like 8 servings. If you’re someone who eats larger meals, perhaps more like 4 servings.
