This keto chicken stir-fry recipe will quickly be a staple in your weekly meals. It is ready to serve in 20 minutes, easy to prepare and will please even your non-keto partner. The thing I love about this stir-fry is you can pair with cauliflower rice for you and serve it with rice for any non-keto family members. This keto chicken stir-fry recipe is also very easy to make a double batch and you will have some for leftovers the next day. It reheats well and tastes great the next day.

Keto Chicken Stir-Fry
Stir-frys are such a fresh and tasty dinner option and are a very popular weeknight meal option in Australian families. When you are trying to reduce carbs and sugar in your diet, stir-frys tend to go by the wayside as you can no longer use those sugary marinades or the usual rice and noodle accompaniments.
This keto chicken stir-fry recipe is the perfect low carb option that still provides that fresh and tasty dinner option. I have no doubt this will be a winner with all the family, especially with the sweet chilli sauce.
In this keto chicken stir-fry recipe, we used chicken thighs, as it is a succulent cut that lends perfectly to marinating and then quick cooking. If you prefer chicken breast you could also use that instead. We also love to use seafood in our stir-frys and prawns would work perfectly in this stir-fry recipe also.
Here are some good low carb vegetables that are well suited to stir-frys –
- Chinese cabbage
- Bok choy
- Chinese broccoli
- Choy sum
- Bean shoots
Sugar-Free Sweet Chilli Sauce
In this keto chicken stir-fry, we used the Good Sauce sweet chilli sauce which is a great keto-friendly sauce option as it is sweetened with monk fruit. The combination of vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic and ginger combined with the sweetness from the monk fruit makes for a delicious sauce.
The Undivided Food Co, who makes the Good Sauce sweet chilli sauce, is committed to making products using quality ingredients with no nasties. Their ‘Good Fat’ mayonnaises are all made with olive oil instead of the junky vegetable oils found in other major brand mayonnaise options. They even have a new range of salad dressings, all using olive oil as the base, which I am very keen to try.
