Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry

Print recipe

This flavorful keto chicken stir fry is packed full of crisp, tender veggies. There are so many flavors and textures in this dish. Fresh ginger and green onions provide bright, fresh flavors. The red pepper flakes gives a little kick of heat. It’s a delicious way to eat your veggies for the day!

Stir fry is great for a quick and easy dinner on those busy work nights. From start to finish, this dish only takes  25 minutes. Bonus points because it only uses one pan. Less time in the kitchen and less dishes is always a win – win in my book!

Keto Chicken Stir Fry

Start by heating up a tablespoon of coconut oil in a large saute pan or wok. Once hot, add the chicken, ginger, and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes, until chicken is browned. Remove chicken from pan and place onto a large plate.

Now add an additional tablespoon of coconut oil and the sesame oil to the pan. Add the onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms and broccoli. Saute the veggies for about 3 minutes. Continue tossing the veggies so that they are coated in oil.

Next, add the liquid aminos, red pepper flakes, and Brown Swerve. Mix to combine and coat the veggies. Place the chicken back into the pan and toss to thoroughly combine the meat, veggies, and sauce. Simmer for 5-6 minutes. The vegetables should still be crisp but fork tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

If you prefer a thicker sauce with this keto chicken stir fry, add this additional step. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum with a tablespoon of the liquid from the pan. Add the mixture back into the pan and stir, over low heat, for 1-2 more minutes, until the sauce has thickened.

    My husband and I love this recipe, and I echo Dee’s sentiments (above). This was our second time making it, and we cut the Swerve in half and added a bunch of other veggies- soooo good! Thank you, Suzanne!
