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.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Diet: Gluten Free



  • Crisp compliant bacon
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Sliced avocado
  • Crispy shallots
  • Marinated Onions MAGIC ELIXIR (TM)
  • Arugula or salad greens
  • Cauliflower Rice – see below
  • Carrot coins sautéed and caramelized in clarified butter

For the Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup compliant broth (I like chicken, but use your broth of choice)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Rice the cauliflower. Over medium high heat, heat the coconut oil in a saucepan. Add cauliflower to the pan and cook for 10 seconds, stirring continuously. While continuing to stir, add broth and stir to combine. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove cover, sprinkle with salt and pepper, stir, and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the broth is gone.

Assemble all ingredients in the bowl.



Tip for creamy scrambled eggs: crack eggs into blender, add a shell or so of water, and blend on high until smooth. Cook on lowest heat with clarified butter, stirring eggs constantly, until nice and creamy.

  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.

  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!
