1 leaner – 3 greens – 1 healthy fat – 3 condiments (per serving)
4 servings Ingredients: • ¼ tsp ground black pepper • 1¾ lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced • 2 tsp peeled and minced fresh ginger root • 1 garlic clove, minced • 4 oz. fresh mushrooms (any kind), sliced • 2 tbsp oyster sauce • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeds and membranes removed, sliced • 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced with white and green parts separated • 2 tsp sesame oil, divided • 2 tbsp sesame oil • 2 tbsp soy sauce • 3 cups zucchini “noodles”
1. In a large wok or skillet, heat one teaspoon sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken, season with black pepper, and cook until chicken is done (internal temperature 165⁰F). Remove from wok or skillet and set aside.
