INGREDIENTS IN KETO STIR FRY
Bone Broth - I use beef broth for this recipe, but chicken broth would work if that's what you have on hand.
Coconut Aminos - Similar to soy sauce, but with less carbs.
Xanthan Gum - This helps to thicken the sauce.
Chicken Breast - Slice your chicken thinly before cooking so that it cooks up quickly.
Garlic - Fresh minced garlic gives flavor to the sauce.
Onion Powder - All of the flavor of onion, but without the carbs.
Ginger Powder - Fresh ginger could be used, but I find that powdered ginger is easier to keep in my pantry.
Black Pepper - For a slight bit of heat.
Sesame Oil - This oil adds a warm, nutty flavor to the dish.
Broccoli - Cut your broccoli into bit size florets.
Bell Pepper - I use yellow peppers because I love the color, but red or orange would work here as well.
Green Onion - For mild onion flavor.
Cauliflower Rice or Miracle Noodles - Low carb options to serve with your stir fry.
Red Pepper Flakes - a beautiful garnish that adds a bit of heat.
Sesame Seeds - Garnish this dish with nutty, crunchy seeds.

TIPS FOR MAKING EASY KETO STIR FRY
A stir fry is really a simple dish to put together, but there can be a large number of ingredients.
The biggest trick I have for making this as simple as possible is to prep all of your ingredients ahead of time and have them ready to go before you start cooking.
Because a stir fry cooks so quickly in the pan, you won't have time to measure out spices or chop things up while you're cooking, so making sure that everything is measured, chopped, and waiting will make the actual stir frying process much more enjoyable.
CAN I MAKE BEEF OR SHRIMP KETO STIR FRY?
This recipe was created for a keto chicken stir fry, but the method can absolutely be adapted to use other meats or vegetables.
Beef, pork, or shrimp can be substituted for the chicken in this recipe. Cook the meat first until it's done and then remove it from the pan. Add it back in at the end to warm through.
OTHER LOW CARB VEGETABLES FOR STIR FRY
Broccoli and peppers are classic stir fry veggies, but you can use other vegetables in your keto stir fry. Keep in mind that some vegetables have more carbs than others, so that will change the nutritional values.
- Mushrooms, sliced
- Green Beans
- Bok Choy
- Spinach - added at the end of cooking.
- Carrots - in small amounts.
