Recipe type: Main Dish
  • 2 pounds chicken breast, trimmed and cubed
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced thinly
  • 2 carrot, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 8 mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1 small (about the size of a softball) head cabbage, quartered, cored and sliced thinly
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced in half down the middle, then sliced thinly
  • ⅓ small cauliflower, chopped
  • virgin coconut oil
  1. Trim and cube chicken.
  2. Saute chicken in 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. While the chicken is cooking on medium heat, slice the celery and carrots.
  5. Be sure to keep stirring the chicken so it doesn't stick or burn.
  6. When the chicken is done, remove from the skillet.
  7. Add 2 tablespoons coconut oil, allow to heat momentarily and add the celery and carrots.
  8. Add more coconut oil if needed or desired.
  9. Keep a close eye on the vegetables, stirring every couple of minutes, and slice the cabbage thinly.
  10. When the carrots and celery have turned bright and are no longer crisp (but still firm), remove from skillet.
  11. Cook the cabbage in four separate batches, each time adding 1 or more tablespoons of coconut oil to the skillet first, heat momentarily, then add the vegetable and stir.
  12. The mushrooms will absorb a lot of oil, so add some water to the skillet once you get them in the pan.
  13. When all the vegetables are done and removed from the skillet, mix them together.
  14. You can add the chicken and mix, or if you want to give each person their own portion of chicken you can add to the top of the vegetables (like a garnish).
