A basic low carb chicken stir fry without soy sauce. This recipe can be easily adjusted by varying the vegetables and spices.
It’s been such a good year for summer squash. We only planted a few plants, but they are producing more vegetables than we can eat.
I made this low carb chicken stir fry without soy sauce to use up a few of the summer squash from our garden. We planted the Zephyr variety of summer squash which has a yellow stem and a pale green base.
Our zucchini haven’t been doing as well so I didn’t add any into this dish. However, both zucchini and summer squash can be used in this recipe. Just substitute half the squash with zucchini.
This low carb chicken stir fry is seasoned with chicken broth and spices. So there’s no need to add any soy sauce or tamari.
I served the dish with some grated Parmesan cheese on top. I thought it really enhanced the flavor.
