  • 1/4 cup divided friendly fat to cook in such as butter, pastured lard or tallow, avocado oil, or coconut oil
  • 2-3 cups leftover cooked chicken cubed (use leftovers from your whole crockpotted chicken, whole roasted chicken, or whole Instant Pot chicken, !)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 head cabbage sliced thin
  • 3-4 cups sugar peas sliced broccoli works well too
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • 2-3 inch piece of ginger peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 large carrots sliced with a julienne peeler or just sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos this replaces soy sauce - it tastes just like it without soy! You can find it at most health food stores however I find it is cheaper through Amazon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/3 cup bone broth or water
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Extra sliced green onion and/or chopped nuts for garish if you wish
  • 3 cups cooked long grain white rice for serving


  • Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a large skillet and add the cubed chicken along with the sea salt and pepper. Cook the chicken over medium/high heat for a few minutes to brown and crisp up the outside and then set the chicken aside to add later.
  • Melt another 3-4 tablespoons of butter in the skillet and add in the cabbage, sugar peas, green onions, ginger, and garlic along with a big pinch of sea salt and cook 5 minutes over medium/medium-high heat stirring occasionally.
  • Add the cooked chicken, carrots, coconut aminos, turmeric and bone broth, stir to combine and low simmer over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Serve over white rice and garnish with green onions and chopped nuts.
