I’ve created 6 workouts that you can do throughout the holidays to stay fit this season. They are all around 30 minutes and require no equipment. Download the workouts below and keep off the holiday weight!
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
3 medium carrots, cut into chunks
1 small yellow onion, quartered
1 1/2 pounds Foster Farms Organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cool water
1 head Boston lettuce, separated into leaves (or similar broad, tender lettuce)
In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder, hot sauce and fish sauce. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine the carrots and onion. Pulse until finely chopped.
Add the chicken, then pulse several times to begin chopping the chicken. Add the sauce then continue pulsing just until the chicken is well chopped, but not ground. The pieces should be about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch.
In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil.
Add the chicken and cook, stirring often and breaking up any clumps, until cooked through, about 8 minutes. In a small glass, stir together the cornstarch and water, then add to the skillet. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes.
Transfer the chicken to one side of a serving platter. Arrange the lettuce leaves on the other side.
Diners help themselves by spooning the chicken into individual leaves, using the leaves as they would a sandwich wrap.
Cook to a safe internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F. Always use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature. Do not rely solely on suggested cooking times. Cooking appliances vary in temperature, and cooking times are a guide only.
