Total time
Serves: 4
  • 4 c. shredded organic Napa cabbage, sliced
  • 2 tsp. organic toasted sesame oil
  • 1 ½ c. organic chicken broth
  • 2 -8oz. breasts pasture-raised chicken
  • 2 Tbsp. organic avocado oil
  • ½ medium organic onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves organic garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. organic arrowroot
  • ¼ c. organic almonds, slivered
  • 4 stalks organic celery, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. organic tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  1. First, poach chicken. Place chicken breasts in a single layer in the bottom of a safe, heavy-bottomed pot. Cover chicken with spring or filtered water. Bring to a boil, then quickly reduce heat to low so that the water is barely at a simmer. Partly cover and gently simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat completely, and allow chicken to remain in hot water for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add onion, cabbage, celery and garlic and cook until cabbage is wilted, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add broth, soy sauce and sesame oil and simmer for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in arrowroot, increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
  6. Dice chicken and stir in.
  7. Reduce heat and simmer until heated through, about 4 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle with almonds before serving.
