Keto Spicy Cashew Chicken Stir Fry

****** UPDATED 4/24 – NEW RECIPE ********

I LOVE cashew chicken variations.  ESPECIALLY when it is spicy.  

I updated this recipe tonight and removed the shirataki noodles and changed the stir-fry sauce.  Oh and a few new veggies.  

I had the choice of creating a NEW recipe or updating a slightly older one and I opted to update the older one for a new and improved version.   Not many people are fans of shirataki noodles anyway.

Shirataki noodles BE GONE!

The Sauce

This lovely homemade keto spicy stir fry sauce really packs a punch.  Yet, it is subtle all at the same time.

The sauce features coconut aminos, sriracha, and a touch of erythritol for a hint of sweetness.  And that is just a few of the ingredients.

Be sure to check out the rest.  But just look at this pretty sauce.

Veggies are not optional on keto.  In fact, you can read my thoughts on this in my Are Veggies Optional article.

Carbs should come from veggies first.  You should never hear yourself say “I don’t enough carbs left for veggies”. 

Fiber is important too and veggies are a great source of fiber.
