trying to lose some weight, and we are eating a lot of boneless chicken breasts.
I'm also losing weight, and need to be on a no sodium diet. I am hypothryoid with edema symptoms. So...
For stir fry, I use teflon fry pan, and a few squirts of pure extra vigin olive oil I keep handy in a squirt bottle.
I use fresh ingredients, not frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts which have salt solution injected, basted, that seems imposible to get rid of. I slide the chicken breast against the grain in about 1/4" slices.
I keep fresh garlic and ginger handy, as well as dry mustard, crushed red pepper and cayenne. The garlic, ginger, pepper help elevate metabolism a bit.
It would probably taste better with the sesame oil, but I only eat in asian restaurants, don't have experience growing up in asian family. :-) But I don't use any processed carbs in my cooking/diet. So corn starch is out. Salt free...so I pass on the soy sauce.
I use long grain basmattie rice...the lowest glycemic index rice.
I keep washed organic salad greens handy.
I slice fresh mushrooms, or hydrate ****aki.
Fresh unsalted almonds.
I vary the spices. Sometimes garlic & ginger; other times ginger mustard. Sometimes I make rice, and have salad on side.
Other times I serve up the chicken on the greens.
I alternate with broiled salmon fillet.
