As an effort to inspire your meal prep using Trifecta chicken, I created this recipe that takes just a little extra effort to make, and it’s much simpler than what it seems to be. The effort will yield a punch of flavor that will be well worth the work!

 Cornstarch is a sort of stable in Chinese cuisine. It’s thickening agent gives that beautiful glossy look to sauces. Make this sauce and you’ll want to use it with all your Trifecta proteins. Increase or decrease the heat by adding or taking away some of the Sriracha.

Description

When I looked at my pantry, I saw I had all the ingredients for this recipe at hand! Though it may require you to create a quick cornstarch slurry, I can assure you any take-out cravings will be satisfied by this delicious recipe. Best of all? It uses your Trifecta a la carte goodies!

Ingredients

  • 16 ounce Trifecta Chicken, diced bite-size
  • 1.33 cups Trifecta brown rice
  • 1.5 cups Trifecta broccoli

Sriracha Honey Sesame Sauce:

  • ¾ cup water + 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup soy sauce, or tamari, low sodium
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil

Cornstarch slurry:

  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch + 2 tablespoon water, mixed in a bowl

Instructions

  1. Place together all sauce ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and stir constantly for 2-5 minutes, allowing the sauce to slightly reduce. Add cornstarch 1 teaspoon at a time, allowing the cornstarch to react with the heat. Add a total of 3 teaspoons first and then adjust as desired. Sauce will thicken up over time. Cover and keep warm.
  2. Dice chicken into bite-size. Add chicken to pot with sauce and mix to incorporate. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until chicken is warmed and evenly covered. Cover pot and keep warm until needed.
  3. Reheat the rice and broccoli for 3 minutes in two separate microwave-safe bowls. Add an extra 30 seconds to a minute if extra time is needed.
  4. In a bowl, plate the following: ⅓ cup of reheated Trifecta brown rice, followed by 4 ounces of the sesame honey ginger chicken, and ½ cup of the reheated Trifecta broccoli.
  5. Garnish with sesame seeds, picked fresh cilantro, extra Sriracha, and/or chives & scallions. Enjoy!
