Quick and easy, Chinese-style chicken broccoli stir-fry that is low-carb, keto and gluten-free friendly. Serve as is, with cauliflower rice, regular rice, noodles or quinoa (nutrition notes for all options provided above). 



2 large chicken breasts, diced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

1 large head of broccoli, cut into half florets

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon diced or minced ginger

2 large cloves garlic, diced or minced

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

2 tablespoons Tamari sauce (or coconut aminos or soy sauce)

2 teaspoons sesame oil


Prepare ingredients.

  • Cut chicken breasts into strips and then cut those into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle lightly with a little salt and pepper (white pepper ideal for Chinese flavours).
  • Cut broccoli into half florets and leave small ones whole. Dice the ginger and garlic and measure out the sauces (mix them in one bowl for ease). 

Pre-cook meat and veggies. 

  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli (cut side down) and cook for 2 minutes covered with a lid. This will help to steam the broccoli while also frying the bottom. Uncover, flip over and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  • Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and cook the chicken for 3 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the second side. Remove to a plate and set aside. 

Finish the stir-fry.

  • Add the butter, ginger and garlic to the skillet on medium-high. Cook for about 1 minute or until it’s starting to turn golden and aromatic. Return the chicken and broccoli and pour in the sauces. Stir fry for about a minute together and serve.
