  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • ½ cup cashew nuts (70 g)
  • 1.5 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup broccoli (a handful of florets)
  • ½ cup red bell pepper (about a quarter of a bell pepper)
  • ½ medium zucchini cubed

For the gluten free stir fry sauce :

  • 4 tablespoon tamari sauce (use coconut aminos for paleo diet or if you are soy free)
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon starch (see notes)


  • Cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Add the olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to medium low. Add red bell pepper, zucchini, broccoli florets and cashew nuts.
  • In the meantime, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl. Pour the sauce into the pan. Cook until vegetables are crisp tender, mixing frequently. And voilà!
    Bon appétit !


Starch : If you are on a paleo diet use either arrowroot or tapioca starch. Both are paleo compliant. If you are not on a paleo diet, you can use either corn starch or potato starch. If you can't tolerate any of those starches, you can omit the starch completely. The starch is a thickener for the sauce. It doesn't alter the taste.
