Low Carb Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry
Health Highlights
This recipe for chicken and broccoli stir fry is a classic dish of chicken sauteed with fresh broccoli florets and coated in a savory sauce.


1 tsp Vegetable oil
2 cup Broccoli florets
1 cup Cremini (Italian) mushroom (sliced)
2 tsp minced Ginger root
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
1 tbsp Vegetable oil (for chicken)
454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (cut into 1 inch pieces)
1/4 cup Oyster sauce
1/4 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
2 tsp Sesame oil
1 tsp Soy sauce
1 tsp Cornstarch
1 tbsp Water (cold)


  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook for approximately 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover.
  4. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
  5. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add them to the pan in a single layer - you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Add the vegetables back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the vegetables are warmed through.
  7. In a bowl whisk together the oyster sauce, chicken broth, sesame oil, and soy sauce. In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  8. Pour the oyster sauce mixture over the chicken and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds. Add the cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
  9. Serve immediately, with cauliflower rice if desired.
