Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

Spicy mayonnaise

  1. Add the ingredients to a small bowl, and stir to combine.

Chicken stir-fry with broccoli

  1. Heat the olive oil in a wok or large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir-fry for a few minutes, until the chicken turns golden brown.
  2. Add the broccoli and tamari soy sauce. Stir together for a couple of minutes until the broccoli is crisp, yet tender. Spoon into individual bowls, and serve with the spicy mayonnaise on the side.

Can I freeze and reheat this dish?

While stir-fries freeze just fine, mayo typically does not. That said, if you freeze this dish, we’d suggest using up the leftover sauce with another meal — and making a fresh batch when you go to reheat the stir-fry.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Made this with a few edits and it was fantastic! All leftovers consumed immediately by my kids. I only had frozen chicken breasts, so used those instead of thighs, added more broccoli, subbed coconut aminos for the tamari (husband can’t do soy) and added a couple green onions and some grated ginger and sesame oil. I am sure this increased the carbs some, but still very reasonable. Skipped the mayo. Will definitely make again, very quick dish, very satisfying.

    Yay!! It must be good if kids go back for more :)

    I should say though, the “kids” are 20 and 22, not like little kids...

    I made this tonight and I was very pleased. I added 1/2 tsp of organic minced garlic and about 1tsp of freshly grated ginger root. I was happy to have found the Tamari soy sauce at Publix. I used the low sodium version . Tamari had a better flavor than regular soy sauce. I probably used about 1/4 cup because I didn't think 2tsp would do it. It was delicious. No leftovers! Also I used Siracha for the spicy mayonnaise. The recipe did not specify what type of hot sauce to use. What do y'all suggest? Thank you.

    You can simply use your favorite hot sauce. Just be sure it has clean ingredients!
    Many people like popular brands such as Tabasco or Cholula.

    The spicy mayo sauce is divine! I used 1/2 cup of mayonnaise instead of 3/4 cup though. The sauce came out spicy and salty! Red Hot, Hot Sauce by Frank's works great with this. I normally eat rice with chicken and broccoli to fill me up. Substituting mayo instead of rice really did the trick in filling me up!

    What is the serving size please?

    For the serving size, you will divide your finished dish into the number of servings you have the recipe set. You can do this by portioning it out or by doing a visual estimation. You can also set the recipe for 1 serving to see a single serving is 1/2 lb of chicken and 2.5 ounces of broccoli.

    I am going to try this recipe today for dinner. Should I let the skin on the chicken tighs or better take it away? I think on the recipe video the thighs have no skin. Thanks!!

    Hi, Maria! That would be personal preference. It works well either way!

    My family really enjoyed this. I used frozen chicken breasts and put the sauce mix (using Braggs) on it and did it in the oven from frozen, so not a stir fry. Steamed broccoli and spicy mayo (with Sriracha) on the side. I would never have come up with this on my own and would have had rice in the "olden days". Loved it! Thank you!

    Awesome! I am so glad you enjoyed this one. Remember, that spicy mayo goes well with a lot of things :)

    Hi! This is an amateur question... does the Tamari sauce come within its ingredientes with sugar? I really do think so. Or maybe you know about a brand that is sugar free? Thank you for the receipt. Looks delicious, I am going to try it for lunch today.

    Tamari will have carbohydrates but should not have added sugar.
