Szechuan Province Chicken

Szechuan Province Chicken 

We have been tinkering with some ways to get our old favorites to fit into our paleo world.  We added far east spices with some good ol’ chicken.   



  • 2Tbs of Sesame oil  9F
  • 15oz of chicken breast, cubed  15P
  • 3Tbs Chili garlic sauce  1C (I know, I know… there is some vinegar in this sauce)
  • 2tsp of Ginger
  • 2 bell pepper strips  2C
  • 1 1/3c of chopped onion  2C
  • 4c of Broccoli  2C
  • 2c of sliced carrots  4C
  • 1 1/2c of Water chestnuts  1C
  • 1/2c of Chicken broth  Free
  • 1Tbs of Almond butter  6F
  • 2 1/4c of Cabbage  1C
  • 2 green onions  (negligible so free)
  • 4c of Spinach  1C
  • 3c of bean sprouts  1C


This is going to be a rather large meal, so have your biggest pan ready.

Steam the broccoli and carrots.  When nice and soft set aside.  

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken, chili garlic sauce and ginger and cook for 2 minutes.  Add bell peppers, onions, and chestnuts.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Add the broth and almond butter, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  When the sauce gets thick, add green onions, spinach, and bean sprouts.  Mix and take off heat.

This is 15P, 15C, 15F  (divide as appropriate) and will be a very hearty meal that will keep you full and not hungry in an hour.  享用! (Chinese for, enjoy!)
