Keto Asian Chicken Stir Fry

Asian Chicken Stir Fry

When I started cooking keto Asian chicken stir fry was one of the nostalgic meals that I wanted to recreate. Thanks to some help from my friend and professional chef Nick,  you can now whip up some amazing keto-friendly chicken stir fry without spiking your glucose.

The secret to this recipe is using chicken thighs instead of chicken breast meat. because they are more tender and flavorful.  This recipes also heats up well as planned-overs because the meat doesn’t dry out as much when you reheat it. Chicken thigh meat usually costs less than boneless chicken breast so it will save you some money on your grocery bill too!
