Ingredients and Variations
Stir fry chicken and vegetables are so versatile, it’s like a new recipe every time!
CHICKEN – Ground chicken absorbs the flavors of garlic, ginger, and aminos, but ground beef and shrimp will also get the job done.
VEGETABLES – Cauliflower and cabbage are low-carb favorites, but other veggies like mushrooms, zucchini, spinach, and broccoli add nutrition, color, and flavor!
SAUCE – The sauce practically makes itself! Sesame oil has a light and slightly nutty flavor and the amino acids add that authentic Asian ‘umami’ flavor. Soy sauce is a good substitute for the amino acids, and for a spicy kick, sprinkle in some red pepper flakes or a drizzle of sriracha.
