  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup gluten free hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp tamari soy sauce (gluten free)
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 8oz can water chestnuts, drained and diced
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  1. Add olive oil, sesame oil and chicken to a large skillet and cook over medium/high heat until chicken is cooked through. Break up the chicken with a wooden spoon as it is cooking.
