Sweet and Spicy Jalepeno Chicken Stir Fry

Sweet and Spicy Jalepeno Chicken Stir Fry

Paleo Thai Sweet and Spicy Jalepeno Chicken Stir Fry – you can serve it over rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, or even gluten-free pasta. Or just plate it as it is. It tastes A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and I am sure you will be making this dish over and over again, because it is Easy, Delicious and Healthy. Even my husband said that this dish is the bomb. I promise you, this will be the BEST Thai Jalepeno Chicken Stir Fry you’ve ever had.

This Thai Sweet and Spicy Jalepeno Chicken Stir Fry is also Paleo and gluten free. Most stir fry recipes usually call for soy sauce which is not Paleo. Also, soy sauce should be avoided if you have any hormonal imbalances or PCOS. In stead of soy sauce, I use fish sauce which is a classic and authentic Thai ingredient.

I am glad I added jalepeno peppers, even though usually I don’t add any to stir frys. They are really the star of the sauce and they make all the difference in this dish. So if you are thinking of skipping the jalepeno peppers, don’t do it. It will still turn out great, but it won’t be the same. Since the peppers cook for several minutes in the skillet, the dish is not very hot or spicy. It has a nice mild kick that combines wonderfully with the sweetness of the orange marmalade, honey, coconut sugar and the garlic.

    We haven’t had a stir fry in a while, but my kids love them, so I think we’ll add this one to the menu! It looks delicious! Pinning and sharing!

      Hope you give it a try, it’s delicious! Thanks for stopping by and sharing, Michelle! 🙂

  • Adam

    This looks great, I love the interesting flavors you bring here. I really want to try that coconut sugar and I guess I’m not the only one who uses fruit jam to replace sugar.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Adam! Yes, i love using fruit jam instead of sugar, much better and more flavorful. I try to avoid sugar all together, but if I need some, i use coconut sugar since it’s not highly processed like white sugar.

    Sweet and spicy? Jalapenos? I’M ON BOARD FOR THIS STIR FRY TRAIN! I’ll perhaps make a vegan version of it but the recipe is nonetheless VERY tempting in its seasoning. Amazing stuff Neil!
