Asian Chicken and Stir fry Cabbage


My husband and I have a love affair with Asian and Mexican food. I am forever looking for new ways to incorporate these foods into our menus. I invented this dish out of a desire for a low carb and gluten free Asian inspired meal. A healthy meal to start off the new year right. I hope your family will enjoy this meal as much as well do. 

Asian Chicken and Stir Fry Cabbage

You will need:
1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breast, boiled and shredded
1 head of green or purple cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup frozen green beans
1 clove of garlic, minced
Gluten free soy sauce
Sriracha sauce (I prefer Texas Pete's Cha!)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp ginger
1 Tbsp dry chives
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tbsp coconut oil

















Directions:


-->In a large wok, heat the coconut oil on med-hi. Add the chicken, onions, green beans, and spices. 



















--> Once the chicken is cooked through, add Gluten free soy sauce and Cha!. Then place shredded cabbage on top. 



















--> Let the cabbage steam for 5-10 minutes, stirring once or twice. You may add more soy sauce and Cha! per your personal tastes. 



















--> Serve hot. If you are not living the low carb lifestyle, you can serve this over rice or Asian noodles.




















--> Happy Eating!
