I love Asian food. Sadly, when you are on a strict low carb plan like Keto, Asian restaurants are pretty much out of the question since just about everything is loaded with sugar and starches.
With that in mind, I decided to go the stir fry route, which would include vegetables and make a complete meal.
One super easy and under utilized product is the broccoli slaw that you can find bagged in your grocers produce section. It doesn’t taste overtly of broccoli, and it’s pretty low carb for a veggie – 3g net carbs for 3/4 cup.
I’m using it in the stir fry, and also in a slaw that I’m posting later this week. They will both be featured on the Week Three Keto 7 Day Menu Plan.

Because most of your veggies are from this slaw, this dish is incredibly easy to throw together – it literally takes just 15 minutes (or less) from beginning to end. Almost faster than takeout, and certainly healthier for you!
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- ¼ cup gluten free soy sauce (tamari)
- ½ cup water
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar substitute
- ½ tsp xanthan gum
- 2 heaping cups bagged broccoli slaw mix
- ½ cup chopped scallions
- Slice the chicken thighs into thin pieces or strips. In a large saute pan, stir fry the chicken and minced ginger in the sesame oil for 2 - 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce, water, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, sugar substitute, and xanthan gum. Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the slaw and the scallions and toss to coat - simmer for 2 minutes or until al dente. Don't overcook or it will be mushy.
