Zippy Chinese Chicken Stir-Fry

This is a fun dish, whether you’re ringing in a Chinese New Year or just a new you.
Zippy Chinese Chicken Stir Fry
Sesame oil
Sea Salt
2 chicken breasts (may use less to your taste)
Coconut oil (or other oil)
16 ounce Package of frozen stir fry vegetables (I’m using Wal-Mart brand Deluxe Stir Fry today)

Red pepper flakes

In a pan place the chicken breasts. Coat with salt, pepper, and then some sesame oil. Bake the chicken at 375 until the breasts are no longer pink inside (about 20 minutes) and then cut the breasts into long slices.
The main thing you are looking for in a stir fry is a lot of color, texture and flavor, especially to off-set the mildness of the egg drop soup. I am using a Wal-Mart brand of stir fry. (There are a couple baby corn cobs (I just pick those out), and an entire bag is only 15 carbs, even with the corn cobs!)
Heat coconut oil over medium heat until hot. Add stir fry vegetables (careful for splatter) and cook, stirring every so often, until they are no longer frozen and starting to look lively. Add sliced chicken and continue to cook and stir until chicken looks heated through again.

Serve on a platter, either within a ring of riced, fried cauliflower, with a smattering of sesame seeds on top for presentation. Add red pepper flakes for zing! (You might want to add to your plate rather than the whole recipe just in case you have people who aren’t into spicy)

    I know this is an older post but I just noticed that you mentioned taking the baby corn out of the vegetables. I don't know if it's because you don't like them, are allergic, or just that you think they are high carb, but if that's the case, I wanted you to know that baby corn is very low carb! There are only a couple net carbs in a whole can! I use them for a lot of things. I cut them into small pieces for soups & grind them for corn bread sub recipes among other things. I was very pleased when I discovered that they were low carb so I just wanted to pass on the info to you.

  2. Yeah, the carrots have more carbs than the baby corn.
