Instructions
  1. Heat coconut oil over medium high heat. Cut chicken breasts into bite size chunks and add to pan. Sear until golden brown and cooked completely. Add thin sliced bell pepper and sauté. Add coconut aminos, cashew cream, and garlic powder to pan and mix well. Add a pinch of salt. Turn heat to medium/medium low and reduce sauce until a loose syrup consistency is reached (just a few minutes). Bring a sauce pan with 1-2 cups of water to a boil. Add green beans and steam with the lid on until the green beans are cooked, but not soggy. Salt green beans to taste. Serve chicken and sauce on top of green beans and garnish with sesame seeds, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
Recipe Notes

*The Cashew Cream was the left overs from straining my cashew coffee creamer. I made cashew milk with soaked cashews and water. I strained the fine cashew bits, but saved them for sauces and soups. It was the perfect addition to this creamy sauce!

My husband says this is the best Whole 30 meal we’ve had this entire time! Later in the week we made this same sauce but put it over thin sliced steak and broccoli. Oh my gosh! It was perfect! But.. I can end every sentence with an exclamation point, but it all means nothing unless you try this. Please, try it and let me know if you like it as much as I do.

Are you doing the Whole 30? What are some of your favorite recipes?
