Asian Chicken and Veggies

Total Time25 minutes
Servings: 4


Asian chicken and Veggies:

  • 2 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil divided
  • 1 yellow onion diced finely
  • 1 red bell pepper cored and sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 cups broccoli florets cut into about 1/4" small florets
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced to 2" pieces
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2-16 oz bags cauli-rice
  • 3 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce optional
  • pinch red pepper flakes optional


For Asian Stir Fry:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add onion and red pepper and cook until beginning to soften 5-7 minutes.
  • Add garlic and broccoli florets and stir to combine. Carefully add 1/2 cup water and let broccoli cook until beginning to soften, 3-5 minutes.
  • Move the vegetables to the sides to clear a space in the middle of the pan, and add 1 tablespoon oil and then the chicken. Season with salt and pepper and let brown on one side, undisturbed for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook 16 ounce bag cauli-rice: heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon of oil. Once hot, add cauli-rice and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 3-5 minutes until hot.
  • After 5 minutes, flip chicken and add coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar and fish sauce, if using, and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes until chicken is cooked through and sauce has barely reduced. (See note about thickened sauce)
  • Divide asian chicken and cauli-rice between four Ello meal prep containers. Let cool completely in refrigerator before covering.


  1. To thicken coconut aminos sauce make a slury with 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder  whisked with 1/2 teaspoon water and add to sauce at the end of cooking
