Keto Kong Pao Chicken with Zucchini Noodles

Zoodles, a surprisingly tasty alternative to noodles, is particularly useful if you’re on a keto diet. That’s zoodles, or zucchini sliced into noodles. Here, it’s paired with a devilishly spiced kong pao chicken recipe, or a Chinese-style chicken dish that’s stir-fried using Chinese vinegar, chilies, broth and brown sugar swerve for a hint of sweetness.

  2. Cook in Wok

    • In a small wok, with your choice of oil (I recommend using ghee, coconut oil, or high heat olive oil), saute the minced garlic and sliced ginger until golden and fragrant.
    • Add in the dry chili, 1 tbsp of vinegar, 4 tbsp of chicken broth, and 1 tbsp more of the Keto Teriyaki Sauce. 
    • You may want to add some Brown Sugar Swerve at this point if you prefer your food to taste a little sweeter. 
    • Add the chicken thigh and nuts and cook until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and the sauce thickens.
