Sweet Sriracha Chicken Stir Fry

5 Bowls376 cals

Spice up your low carb chicken meal prep with this Sweet Sriracha Chicken Stir Fry! Easy to make in minutes, high in protein, and packed with all the right flavors.

Start this one by taking out 2 1/2 pounds of chicken breast, trimming the fat off of them, and cutting them into 1-1 1/2” pieces. Keep in mind that if you cut them bigger or smaller the recipe may take more or less time to cook. Ideally you want to make sure your chicken cooks to at least 165F/74C.

Add your chicken into a large bowl followed by 2 tablespoons of a reduced sodium soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

Give those ingredients a quick mix and let everything sit for around 10 minutes.

Stovetop Stir Fry

Take out a large stovetop pan, turn your burner on high heat, and add 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil into your pan. If you don’t have a good stovetop pan, here’s a link to the one we’ve been using forever and recommend!

Once your pan heats up, add your chicken in and keep it moving on high heat for 2-3 minutes.

Turn your burner down to low-medium heat and mix in 2 bags (2 pounds) of frozen stir fry vegetables.

Fresh Stir Fry Vegetables

  • 2 Cups Chopped Broccoli
  • 1 1/2 Cups Chopped Carrots
  • 2 Cups Chopped Sugar Snap Peas
  • 1 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 Cup Chopped Red Peppers
  • 1/2 Cup Water Chestnuts
  • 1 Cup Chopped Mushrooms

Turn your burner back up to high heat and let everything cook for 3-4 minutes while occasionally mixing everything around.

Turn your burner back down to low-medium heat and add in the rest of your ingredients starting with 1 more tablespoon of reduced sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 10 teaspoons of chili sauce.

Mix all of those sweet Sriracha chicken stir fry ingredients together, cover your pan, and let it cook on low-medium heat for around 5 minutes.

Remove your pan from the heat, portion it out, and eat it as is or with:

  • Quinoa, rice, potatoes, or noodles
  • A wrap or burrito
  • Low carb cauliflower rice

    I made this for my husband and myself for dinner tonight and saved the leftovers for our lunches tomorrow. It was easy and delicious. Perfect amount of sweet and spicy. Thank you. We are both looking to lose weight and tone and I’m very glad to have discovered your website.

    This looks delicious… I love Sriracha…. and this is certainly using it in a different flavor context. awesome!!

    Hey Derek. Great recipe. Really easy and just the right amount of spice. But I have a question. How did you get 64.4g protein per serving? I’m using Myfitnesspal and found 8oz of chicken to be around 44g protein. Since the only real protein source is the chicken where is the other 20g from?


    • Derek Howes on July 19, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Hi Joe! It would depend on the type of chicken breast you are using (more or so the brand). Some chicken breast is higher in fat, water injected (sketchy), and a few other various things! Thanks for the comment
