When people mention easy, healthy meals, they often name chicken stir-fry. The trouble is that it can seem like a lonely diet meal when served without noodles, but it can be frightfully high in carbohydrates if you serve it over noodles. This recipe uses NutriNoodles Shirataki Noodles to slash carbs and keep it keto-friendly.

NutriNoodles Shirataki Noodles are easy to use and have 0 grams of net carbs. They are already cooked and just need a bit of prep as described in the recipe. If you are the type of person who thinks stir-fry goes better with rice, you are in luck! Just use NutriNoodles Shirataki Rice instead of NutriNoodles Shirataki Noodles! The rice is pre-cooked, just like the noodles, so it is super easy to make the swap. 

This stir fry is versatile so you can alter it according to your needs. You can use chicken, salmon, tilapia, shrimp, or even beef or tofu as your protein. If you prefer, you can swap teriyaki sauce for the mixture of soy sauce, ginger, oyster sauce, and turmeric. Any combination of vegetables works well, and mushrooms, baby bok choy, sliced celery, and water chestnuts are worth considering.
