  • Cooking spray
  • ⅓ cup coconut aminos (or 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari +  2 tablespoons water)
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, divided 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons brown sugar (may substitute honey)
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated or finely minced
  • ¾ teaspoon fresh ginger, grated or finely minced (may substitute ⅛ teaspoon dried ginger)
  • 4 cups thinly sliced or julienned vegetables (such as 1 cup carrots, 1 cup mushrooms, 1 cup snow peas, 1 cup red bell pepper)
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated 
  • 1 ¼ lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast, very thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti noodles (use gluten-free pasta, if needed)

  • Toasted sesame seeds


  1. Place a large pot of water over heat and bring to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the uncooked noodles. Cook according to package directions then drain noodles and set aside. Do not rinse.
  2. While the noodles cook, prepare the sauce by whisking together the coconut aminos, rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger. Set aside.
  3. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add 1 teaspoon sesame oil to the skillet and swirl to coat. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through, stirring frequently. Remove the chicken from the pan to a clean plate. 
  4. To the same skillet add the remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil and swirl to coat. Add the carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, bell pepper, and the white parts of the onions. Stir fry for 3-4 minutes or until just tender. 
  5. Add the cooked chicken and noodles to the pan along with the sauce. Toss to coat. Cook 2-3 minutes or until heated through, tossing occasionally. 
  6. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
