Keto Chicken Stir Fry Ingredients
The best part about this easy recipe is you can customize it with the low-carb vegetables you enjoy. Since I want the most nutrition out of this meal, I add as many fresh vegetables as I can. My choices typically include broccoli florets, zucchini, shitake mushrooms, and green onions. If you don’t like any of these veggies, just swap them out!
Add different vegetables to make this keto stir fry recipe all your own. Other great options include sliced bell peppers, green beans, onions, water chestnuts, bok choy, and snap peas. While I enjoy this recipe on its own, this would also be delicious over a bed of cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles. The options are endless when it comes to a delicious low-carb stir-fry recipe.
The basic ingredients you need for the stir-fry sauce include coconut aminos (which is a great replacement for soy sauce), ground ginger, minced garlic, and black pepper. If you like your keto stir fry sauce a little thicker, arrowroot powder mixed with water is a great way to thicken it up.
Let’s not forget the star of this keto chicken stir-fry – the chicken! It’s up to you whether you go with chicken breasts or boneless chicken thighs. Both work great in this recipe. I do recommend going with the highest quality chicken you can find since conventional meats are filled with toxins … the very thing you’re trying to avoid on a keto diet.
If you struggle to find organic chicken at local grocery stores, check out Butcher Box. They deliver organic, grass-fed meats right to your door each month. We began ordering through them last year when meat was scarce. Between the quality of their meat, combined with the convenience of delivery, we never turned back!
How to Make Coconut Chicken Stir Fry
The first step is to mix together the sauce. Combine the coconut aminos, ginger, garlic and pepper into a small bowl and set aside.
While the oil melts, slice the chicken into cubes. Then add the cubed chicken in a single layer into the hot oil and cook until the chicken is lightly browned. This takes approximately 3-5 minutes per side.
As the chicken browns, slice the vegetables. I keep sliced veggies in green containers to use in various keto meals throughout the week – but you have time to chop while the chicken cooks if you didn’t meal prep ahead of time.
Once the chicken is browned on both sides, add the veggies on top of the chicken. Pour the sauce over the chicken and veggies. Allow the meal to cook over medium heat until the veggies soften and stir on occasion.
If the sauce isn’t thick enough for your taste, mix together equal parts arrowroot powder and water in a small bowl. Remove the stir fry from the heat and stir in the arrowroot mixture. Finally, if you want to add a little more fat and flavor to your meal, you can also stir in a little olive oil once you remove it from the heat.
