  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: serves 2-4 1x


Healthy, Paleo sesame chicken made with organic chicken thighs and coated in a dairy-free, soy-free sauce.


  • 1.5 - 2 lb organic chicken thighs
  • 2 tsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp tapioca flour
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • chives (for garnish)


  1. Cut chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Drizzle avocado oil on a large skillet and preheat on medium-high heat.
  3. Place the chicken on the skillet and cook on medium-high heat until browned and cooked through (about 15 minutes).
  4. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce.  Combine the coconut aminos, fish sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, garlic and tapioca flour in a small mixing bowl.  Whisk until tapioca flour has fully dissolved.
  5. Once the chicken is done, turn the heat down to medium-low.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and continue cooking on medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens (about 5 minutes).
  6. Turn off the heat and mix in sesame seeds.
  7. Serve immediately and garnish with chopped chives.
