Easy Asian Sesame Chicken

Calories 200 kcal


  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup wheat-free tamari
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 / 4 cup organic tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • Lettuce cups – I like romaine or radicchio for color
  • For garnish: chopped scallions & sesame seeds


  1. Place the chicken, full breasts, into a crock pot. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cook on LOW 3-4 hours. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken right in the crock pot. Let heat through and serve in lettuce cups with chopped scallions and sesame seeds for garnish.

Modifications for:

  1. Elimination Diet – use Coconut Aminos vs wheat free tamari
  2. Anti-Candida Diet – use Coconut Aminos vs wheat free tamari + apple Cider vinegar vs rice wine vinegar
  3. Ketogenic Diet – ok as is, however will want to serve with added fats (avocado, shredded organic cheese)

I truly believe we need not fall victim to our family’s genetics. Rather, we have the choice and power to direct the destiny of our health and weight, based on the way we eat, move and live our life. I’m here to help you navigate that journey.

Seeing and hearing the results from my clients is what brings me to work every day. There’s nothing better than a client telling me they no longer suffer from the symptoms that plagued them for years and that their healthy journey was so easy and enjoyable.
