Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken and Shredded Brussels Bowls

This stir fry bowl from Skinnytaste One and Done cookbook is made in one pan and is packed with spicy, umami flavors. Spiralized peppers, carrots, and onions with mushrooms and ground chicken make for a flavorful, crunchy meal that comes together quickly in one pan for easy cleanup!

Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken and Shredded Brussels Bowls

Next week, I’ll be going to upstate NY to celebrate my friend Gina’s new cookbook (her third cookbook!),Skinnytaste One and Done. I can’t wait! Writing a cookbook is no joke, and it deserves a celebration! It’s like a baby, haha!

Fun fact, Gina’s blog was the first food blog I ever cooked from. I wanted to make a chili and a quick Google search brought me to Skinnytaste. The rest is history! She’s the best!

Her third cookbook comes out tomorrow and is now my favorite because it’s for those of us who don’t like to cleanup! Everything is made in one pot – a pressure cooker, sheetpan, skillet, casserole dish, air fryer, you name it – as long as it’s one pan, it’s in there! How cool is that?

Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken and Shredded Brussels Bowls

It’s perfect for the busy home cook who wants to put something healthy on the table, but doesn’t want to spend forever in the kitchen and certainly doesn’t want to spend time cleaning up afterwards. There are 140 recipes in this cookbook and 120 photos, which I love.

I love a good stirfry, especially one with brussels sprouts and Asian flavors (how fun and different!), and I used the Inspiralizer to amp up the texture a bit with some spiralized carrots, peppers, and onions!

Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken and Shredded Brussels Bowls

This stir fry saves well, is lean but flavor packed, and is made entirely in a skillet! Sounds good, right? Pre-order her cookbook or pick it up in stores tomorrow! An early congrats to my girl Gina for making another incredible cookbook – and can’t wait to celebrate next week, mama!

Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken and Shredded Brussels Bowls

Brussels sprouts in a stir-fry? Why not! Although you’ll probably never see this dish on a Chinese takeout menu, I love making stir-fries with uncommon ingredients. Shred the sprouts very thinly with a sharp knife or buy them pre-shredded, and make sure your pan is really hot so that they brown a little on the edges—yum! This low-carb dish is so loaded with veggies that you won’t even miss the rice.


  • 1 teaspoon grapeseed or canola oil
  • 1/2 pound 93% ground chicken
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce*
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 small onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cups 7 ounces shredded Brussels sprouts
  • 1 carrot Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 2 ounces sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing Chinese rice wine, mirin, or dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 medium scallion sliced, for garnish
  • * Read the label to be sure this product is gluten-free.


  • In a large nonstick skillet or wok, heat 1/2 teaspoon of the grapeseed oil over high heat. When the pan is hot and almost smoking, add the chicken, 1/2 tablespoon of the soy sauce, and the pepper flakes and brown the chicken, using a wooden spoon to break it into small pieces as it cooks, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  • To the pan, add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon grapeseed oil, the Brussels sprouts, and carrots. Cook, stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper and mushrooms. Pour in the remaining soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet, stir, and reheat for about 30 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat, garnish with the scallion, and divide between 2 bowls.

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
