  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 carrots, sliced at an angle
  • 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 toothpicks ginger essential oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 tsp. curry powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Lemon Honeystix (or substitute with 1 Tbsp. honey and 3–4 drops lemon essential oil)
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil

  2. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, and ginger essential oil.
  3. Add chicken, soy sauce mixture, curry powder, salt, and pepper to the vegetables. Stir to make sure everything is coated and mixed well. Continue to cook until chicken is cooked through.
  4. In a separate bowl or BlenderBottle®, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients.

  6. Pour the sauce mixture into the pan with the soy sauce mixture, and cook over medium-high heat for 2–3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
  7. Pour the chicken and vegetables back into the pan, and evenly coat with the sauce.
