Low Carb Version
Whilst this is a low carb meal, the 26g of carbs (mainly from the Worcester and soy sauces) may mean it’s not an option for everyone. If that’s the case check out my other Low Calorie Chicken Recipes as they’ll be other options with next to no carbs at all.
Lower Fat Version
14g of the 16g of fat come from healthy olive oils so there’s nothing to worry about. If you’re still scared of ALL fats (it’s only trans fats you need to worry about!) then feel free to use a low calorie cooking spray instead. This would make the fat content only 2g and would lower the calorie count down to 288 calories per serving.
Overall, this stir fry is a great low carb option and I regularly eat it on days where I’m restricting carbs but one that anyone would happily eat.
In fact this is one of my girlfriend’s favourite recipes and one that she requests almost every week. Who knows, it could become a staple in your household too!
