  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 ½ pounds chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp ginger fresh, finely minced
  • 1/3 cup cashews raw
  • ½ tsp garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Bok choy leaves separated
  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds for garnish


  • Start by laying the chicken breast flat on the cutting board. Then, slice the chicken crosswise across the grain into 1/4 inch strips.
  • Cut the peppers into strips by flattening out the pepper so it is a rectangle and slicing long pieces julienne style.
  • Next, cut the green onions on a side angle. Grate the ginger and the ginger.
  • Heat up the wok pan or skillet with high sides to high heat. Then, add the avocado oil.
  • Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is nicely browned on all sides, around 3 minutes.
  • Then, add bell pepper, green onion, ginger, cashews and garlic powder.
  • Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Stir fry the veggies until they become crisp-tender, around 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the bok choy, sesame oil, and tamari or soy sauce.
  • Continue to stir fry until the Bok Choy wilts and the other ingredients are coated, approximately 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to individual serving plates.
  • Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
