Skinless chicken thighs are ideal for this recipe as they’re more juicy than chicken breasts and less likely to dry out during stir frying, though you can substitute chicken breast if preferred. To keep the recipe keto-friendly, we use tamari or coconut aminos instead of soy sauce; honey and toasted sesame oil add sweetness and richness while honey will provide additional sweetness in its place.
Stir fry recipes require quick preparation to achieve maximum flavor, so it is key that all the vegetables and chicken are in the right places prior to beginning to cook. Cut all of your vegetables to similar sizes to ensure even cooking times and pre-measure all spices and seasonings before beginning to prepare the recipe.
Switch up this recipe easily by swapping out the protein with shrimp, steak or even tofu as desired. As for vegetables, feel free to choose any combination from bok choy, green beans, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, mushrooms or zucchini for this dish.

Creamy Ham and Broccoli Soup
This keto ham and broccoli soup recipe makes a satisfying comfort food that’s also surprising healthy. Low in carbs and calories, and rich with high-quality proteins from the ham and veggies. Plus it has a velvety texture – great for those who don’t prefer chunky soups! Easy to prepare in advance; can be stored for four days in your refrigerator.
This ham and broccoli soup relies on its thickening mixture made with butter, flour and onion to achieve its silky, velvety texture – an ideal ingredient for those on a weight-loss journey. Use chicken broth for additional savory notes, while vegetable broth works just as effectively (sometimes known as “no-chicken” broth).
To make a roux, melt butter in a large pot over medium heat and add onions. Saute for approximately five minutes until onions become translucent before stirring in thyme and garlic before gradually adding flour until mixture turns golden brown, about two to three minutes total.
Begin by slowly adding chicken broth and heavy whipping cream, stirring until all the ingredients have been fully mixed together. Increase heat to medium and bring soup to a simmer before turning down to low and adding ham, cheddar cheese and xanthan gum – then stir continuously until cheeses have completely melted into broth and you reach your desired consistency for soup.
