Gluten Free Soy Free Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry!

Happy Thanksgiving week! I have a couple of oldie (but goodie) holiday recipes to share, but also a new recipe. It’s something I put together at the last minute one evening. Sometimes, those are the best recipes!

This one is so simple. Only a few ingredients are needed, and it can be made within half an hour or so. It’s a great option for when you don’t have a lot of time to cook, which for most Americans, is during a week like this one!

Please note that I didn’t measure the amount of teriyaki sauce that I used, so 1/4 to 1/2 cup is an estimate. You probably won’t need it all, unless you add more chicken or vegetables to the recipe, but you never know. Some like a stronger taste, so you may adjust accordingly

Here’s the new recipe:

Super Simple Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry! Gluten/Soy/Allergen Free

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: Serves 3 to 4 people

Super Simple Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry! Gluten/Soy/Allergen Free

Brain/Gut/Heart healthy, yet deliciously simple stir fry recipe that's top 8 allergen free. Gluten/grain/soy/allergen free. Paleo/AIP/SCD/GAPS friendly.


  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast (preferably organic and pasture raised)
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 to 2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 to 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Coconut Secret Teriyaki sauce (to taste)
  • 2 to 3 T coconut oil, melted in large frying pan
  • salt to taste


  1. Cut up chicken into one inch chunks. Pour 1/8 to 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce over it and set aside while chopping up vegetables. Marinate for 15 to 30 minutes, if possible.
  2. Add water to medium sized pan (about 1 inch up from bottom, but make sure it's below steamer). Place steamer on top, and add carrots. Steam for 4 to 5 minutes, and then add broccoli. Cook for additional 4 to 5 minutes (a bit more if frozen), then add asparagus and cook until softened, but still crisp and a bright green color. Keep checking and poking vegetables, so as not to overcook! You want the broccoli and asparagus to have a little crunch.
  3. Add chicken to warm frying pan. Saute on medium heat until cooked throough (about 8 to 10 minutes). Then add vegetables, sauce and salt to taste. Keep in mind that you may not need the whole half cup of teriyaki sauce! Stir to coat.
  4. Serve plain or over rice.

Food for thought:

You may saute the vegetables instead or steaming, if you prefer. Start with carrots, as they take time to soften.

A Recipe for Serving Up More Gratitude This Thanksgiving

Many people seem to think that healthy recipes have to be boring, bland, and complicated to make, but when you get a little creative, and use fresh ingredients, it’s just not the case! Far from it.

Once your taste buds adjust to the subtle, natural flavors of real food, a whole new world of healthy eating opens up to you.

Of course, it’s a lot easier to figure out how to make the transition if you receive support, education, and encouragement from a trusted mentor. If you’re tired of going it alone, let’s talk! Feel free to book a call with me here.
