Spicy Pepper Chicken Stir Fry

Spicy Pepper Chicken Stir Fry


  1. 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch slices
  2. 2 tbsp coconut oil
  3. 1 tsp cumin seeds
  4. 1/2 each green, red, and orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
  5. 1 tsp garam masala
  6. 2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  7. Salt, to taste
  8. Scallions, for garnish

For the Marinade:

  1. 1/2 cup coconut cream
  2. 1 clove garlic, minced
  3. 1 tsp ginger, minced
  4. 1 tbsp freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 tsp salt
  6. 1/4 tsp turmeric


  1. Place all of the marinade ingredients into a Ziploc bag. Add the chicken, close the bag, and shake to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 6 hours.
  2. In a wok or large sauté pan, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the marinated chicken and let cook for 5 minutes. Stir the chicken until it begins to brown, and then add the peppers, garam masala, and freshly ground pepper. Sprinkle with salt. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly, or until the bell pepper is cooked to desired doneness. Serve hot.
