Ingredients

Keto Stir Fry Sauce

Chicken Stir Fry

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil * divided
  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken * cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup green beans * trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper * cut into thin strips
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger * minced or grated
  • green onions * sliced thin, optional
  • sesame seeds * optional

Instructions

Keto Stir Fry Sauce

  • Whisk together the stock, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, brown sugar substitute, tomato paste, and sesame oil. Set aside.

Chicken Stir Fry

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the avocado oil in a wok or large, deep skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook until the center of the chicken is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes, then remove to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining avocado oil to the pan along with the broccoli, green beans, and pepper.  Cook until just crisp-tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Stir in the ginger and garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds longer.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and carefully pour in the stir-fry sauce. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until everything is heated through, being careful not to over cook.
  • Garnish with slices of green onion or scallions and sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy as is, or serve over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.
