Spiced Chicken with Broccolini Stir Fry

I was so inspired by the new Whole30 Fast and Easy book because I love the idea of quick weeknight eating, and if you have the supplies in advance, you can have dinner in under 15 minutes. Broccolini! If you are not currently eating it, it’s an absolute must. It‘s the tastier cousin of broccoli. If you don’t see it in your market, talk to your grocer and develop a rapport–foodies want to help other foodies! It’s quite flavorful with turmeric powder, smoked paprika, and granulated garlic, but there are so many ways to switch it up so by all means, do! By the way, make extra, because tomorrow I will show you how to make a fantastic breakfast with the leftovers.

Spiced Chicken with Broccolini Stir Fry

nocrumbsleft_horizontal

  • 1 tsps turmeric powder
  • 1 Tbsps smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1½ tsp salt, divided
  • 1-½ lbs boneless and skinless chicken breasts (about 3 breasts)
  • 4 Tbsps olive oil, divided
  • 12 oz. broccolini (2 packages)
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsps coconut aminos

Cut the chicken breasts on a diagonal into thin strips, about 1/4″ in width, which will be about 7 pieces per breast. Set aside in a large bowl.

In a medium bowl, stir the turmeric powder, smoked paprika, granulated garlic, and salt together to make a spice mixture. Add to the cut chicken, with 2 Tbsps of olive oil. Mix to coat well.

Heat 1 Tbsps olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat and sauté the broccolini for 2 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and sauté for 1 more minute. Remove and set aside.

In the same pan over medium high heat, add the remaining 1 Tbsps olive oil, a sprinkle with salt and sauté the chicken for 1 minute a side. Remove and set aside.

Add 2 tsps coconut aminos to deglaze the pan and return the chicken and broccolini to the pan and stir to warm. Serve.

Leftover Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds ground chicken, one pound ground dark meat and half pound ground breast
  • 1 cups spinach chopped coarsely
  • 1 red pepper (or color of your choice), finely chopped
  • Handful of finely chopped chives (if desired)
  • 1 T smoked paprika
  • 2 – 3 tsp kosher salt (less, if you prefer)
  • Black pepper as desired
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • half a medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil, plus more to sauté

Place the chicken in a bowl. Combine well. Add the onion, red pepper, spinach, parsley, garlic and mix to combine. Sprinkle the smoked paprika over, and then the salt and black pepper.

Drizzle the chicken mixture with 2 T olive oil, mix it in and form four patties, then place them in well-oiled pan on medium heat. Cook 5 minutes on each side.

TIP: I like to keep the mixture in the fridge in a mason jar for freshness and prepare these throughout the week.

  3. My husband looooves paprika and I swoon over all spices!! Can’t wait to try your latest genius creation!

    1. Oooh thanks so much!

  4. Can’t seem to come up with the correct amount of spices. You call for 3 tablespoons but the recipe only has 2 1/2 tablespoons. Can you send me the correct amounts?

    1. Thank you so much! The amount in the recipe is correct, although my math in adding it all up is incorrect!

  5. Does the chicken really cook for only two minutes? Am I supposed to cube the chicken before cooking? Thanks?

    1. I meant: Thanks! 🙂

    2. I cut mine super thin, so yes, i do cook for 2 minutes. But if you slice them not as thin, cook accordingly.

  6. This recipe is off-the-charts delicious! Loving your takeover this week! Made this tonight and we barely spoke we were so busy gobbling it up! Thanks, Teri! All your recipes are spot-on and so easy and delicious.

    1. Yay!!

  7. Thank you so much for the recipe! I made it last night and it was so delicious. I forget that I have tumeric and it reminded me of how much it elevates whatever it’s in!! 10’s across the board!

    1. Ooh that makes me so happy! So glad you enjoyed it!
