Rest Day Recipe
1 lb chicken breast
1/4 large red cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 tbsp avocado oil
3 tbsp pear or apple juice
4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce, divided
1-2 tbsp gochujang
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil, divided
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tbsp giner, minced
Kimchi - pickled red onions are a delicious and easy substitute for kimchi!
Heat up a large pan to med-high heat. As that’s heating up, in a small bowl combine pear juice, 3 tbsp soy sauce, gochujang, 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and brown sugar. Set aside.
Add avocado oil to the pan, then cabbage, carrots, 1 tbsp soy sauce and half tbsp of sesame oil. Heat until softened, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
To the same pan add chicken (add more oil if pan is dry) spreading evenly and allow to cook until bottoms have browned, about 2 minutes. Cook for another 2-5 minutes until chicken is nearly cooked through. Add garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Slowly stir in sauce and simmer on low until sauce has thickened, about 3-5 min. Serve on warm tortillas with cabbage mixture, kimchi, cilantro, and lime juice. If you want additional heat, add some sriracha on top!
