How to Make Teriyaki Chicken
Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add in the olive oil, then the chunks of chicken, salt and pepper.
Sauté for a few minutes, making sure to sear all sides.
Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add in the onions and red bell pepper, sauté a few minutes until soft. Add in the garlic and ginger and sauté for about 15 seconds, then pour in the chicken broth.
Add in the broccoli and cook for a few minute until almost cooked through.
Add in the chicken and teriyaki sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve with a garnish of the scallions, toasted sliced almonds and (optional) sesame seeds.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days or freeze.
Can I Make This Keto Chicken Stir Fry in Advance?
Absolutely! In fact, it's even better the next day because the chicken and veggies have time to soak in and meld with the flavors in the sauce.
You can also freeze it! Place leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for a few months. To thaw, just let it sit in the fridge overnight, then throw it back in the skillet over low heat until warmed through.

The homemade sauce used in this recipe gets it sweetness and stickiness from a sugar substitute and this wonderful sugar-free honey that taste just like regular honey. This keeps the calories and carbs low making it an idea meal if your focus is weight loss.
Tips for the Best Keto Stir Fry
- Because everything cooks rather quickly, you’ll want to dice your chicken and slice your veggies before you begin, so it will be ready to add at the right time.
- To ensure all of the chicken is cooked properly, you’ll want to cut it into evenly sized. The same goes for the vegetables as well.
- Want to add ever more veggies? Try adding some diced zucchini, fresh green beans, mushrooms or a few thinly sliced carrots.
- You don’t want your chicken to steam, so make sure you start off with a hot skillet. Then you’ll be able to brown the chunks of chicken and give them nice color.
- Want more protein? After the chicken and veggies have cooked, add some raw shrimp and cook until tender! The combination of chicken and shrimp tastes amazing with the teriyaki sauce.
What is the Difference Between Stir Fry Sauce and Teriyaki Sauce?
Both sauces have mostly the same ingredients. Some teriyaki sauces can be a little thicker and little sweeter, but for the most part both sauces are made with rice wine vinegar, soy sauce or aminos, some sort of sweetener and a combination of Asian seasonings.
