Pesto Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry



When you have homemade pesto you need use up (see my recipe here: Homemade Walnut-Basil Pesto ), why not make up a recipe to use it!

I love that there are so many ways to serve vegetables; feel free to change out the vegetables to use what you have or what you like. If you need a wok, which is the easiest way to cook this dish, check out this link:

1 lb skinless chicken breast, cubed

2 Tblsp. coconut oil

1 lb. broccoli, chopped

1 head of baby bok choy (about 4 cups, sliced)

1 lb. white mushrooms, sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

¾ cup. basil pesto (see my recipe here:   )


Heat the coconut oil in a wok over medium heat and add the chicken. Cook until tender when you try to cut it in half, about 7-10 minutes. Add the vegetables, pesto, and add salt and pepper to taste; add a little more coconut oil, if needed. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
