Keto Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry is a perfect one-pot dish in which chicken chunks are stir-fried with fresh broccoli florets and coated in a glazing savory sauce.
Stir fries are one of the easiest and favorite dishes we make during weeknights. I love anything Chinese and so, I do not miss a chance to make them at home. Stir fries do not take much time to cook (and eat!) and there is only one pan that is going to get dirty. That’s an added bonus if you ask me!
In other news, I know that it has been a while since I have posted anything here. AtoZChallenge took its toll on me and I was exhausted after posting everyday in the month of April. I’m back home with my furball now and guess what? We went on a hike!
Anyway, I’m also back on Keto. A week ago, I had shared a picture of myself on Instagram which made my friends inquire about what the hell was going wrong with me. Yup, I have put on weight like crazy and it is high time I do something about it. I’ve been feeling low – both mentally and physically lethargic, huffing and puffing in a matter of seconds when doing any strenuous task. That made me think (long and hard!). As you know, I had tried Keto lifestyle before and I have never been happier.
How to make Keto Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry
Well, there are no rules when it comes to stir-fries. You can clean out the refrigerator and add veggies of your choice be it carrots, asparagus or mushrooms. However, since the Ketogenic diet doesn’t allow root vegetables like carrots, omit it. I have added a few for the husband as he isn’t really keen on broccoli. Ah!
Broccoli isn’t available in the market close to where I live in. In fact, it is after a couple of years that I found a few broccoli last week. Needless to say, I was over the moon and I knew what exactly I should cook with these.
Keto Chicken and Broccoli Recipe
To get the Asian flavor, I cook stir-fries in sesame oil. To start off, marinate the chicken pieces in a little salt and pepper. Cook in sesame oil in high heat for a couple of minutes until the chicken is browned on the outside. You needn’t wait till it is properly cooked. There is still time for that. Remove and keep aside.
Add ginger, garlic, broccoli (and other veggies if you are using them) and cook until just tender. Add the cooked chicken and give it a toss.
It’s time to prepare the sauce! In a bowl, whisk together half a cup of chicken broth and soy sauce. Do check the macros. Soy sauce isn’t advisable in Keto but you’d be adding only a tablespoon or so. However, if you want to avoid using soy sauce altogether, use coconut aminos instead.
Add this to the pan, cover and cook the chicken and veggies for two to three minutes until the chicken is done.
Garnish with red chili flakes, spring onion greens and serve hot with a bowl of cauliflower rice.
