Japanese Chicken Stir Fry

Gluten free low carb recipe for japanese chicken stir fry

This satisfying, delicious dinner is made with only real, wholesome veggies and organic chicken breast.

This dish is my family’s new favorite way to enjoy our chicken and veggies! It’s filled with tender, flavorful chicken slices and savory greens all piled high on a fluffy bed of cauliflower rice. The distinct Japanese flavor of mirin takes on a healthy, real food twist as coconut aminos take the place of soy sauce and coconut nectar takes the place of refined white sugar.

My son Andrew, who is 7, says this is the BEST chicken dinner he has ever eaten! And he’s not one to throw around compliments, so mommy is going to put that feather right into her hat 🙂
