Keto Cashew Chicken

Keto Cashew Chicken
Keto Cashew Chicken

"A low-carb take on Thai cashew chicken, this recipe is as close you can get to the original. Bursting with flavor and ready in less than half an hour, this keto cashew chicken is a great comforting dinner option. Eat it alone or serve it with some cauliflower rice or leafy salad. This is a protein-rich meal with adequate calories and only 5g net carbs per serving. You’ll also get plenty of B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, and selenium from the chicken meat and iron and unsaturated fats from the cashews."

NotesFor even more depth of flavor, consider sautéing the chicken in sesame oil and adding a handful of edamame. This will only give you an additional 1-2g of net carbs but lots of fiber and micronutrients. Make sure to cook the chicken on high heat to get the best texture: tender and crisp.
