Low Carb Keto Ginger Chicken Stir-fry Recipe


Low Carb Keto Ginger Chicken Recipe

Lately I have been tempted by my husband's stir-fry obsession.  Many times, we go to food courts around town to grab a delicious and cheap meal.  We love the variety that food courts offer and have some decent options here in Hawaii.  My husband gravitates towards Chinese and Japanese stir-frys, which are unfortunately never keto.  Sugary sauces, fried meats, and vegetable oils seem to be the trend with these restaurants.  I decided I can no longer take it anymore, and came up with this amazing low carb keto ginger chicken stir-fry recipe.  Now when I crave stir-fry, I can have my fix, guilt-free!
