Kevin’s Teriyaki-Style Chicken

Sous-vide chicken is fully-cooked, and so unbelievably tender. The teriyaki sauce is sweet, savory and soy-free. It’s made with coconut aminos, ginger and garlic. Simply drain the sous-vide liquid. Brown the chicken with olive oil in a pan. Add the sauce and cook for a minute.

KETO-FRIENDLY INGREDIENTS

Charred cabbage was the perfect bed for this easy to prepare Teriyaki Chicken. The smokiness from the charred cabbage added a wonderful flavor element. Additionally, the dish was further elevated by the crunchiness from the crispy cabbage. Finishing with a hint of sesame oil and sesame seeds sent this dish over the top!

TIP: Sesame oil is best used as a finishing oil for a ketogenic diet. Using as a cooking oil should be used sparingly, or not at all as the Omega-6 fatty acids contained in sesame oil breaks down under high temperatures, and disintegrates into toxic by-products.

As you cut the cabbage steaks, be sure to keep the core attached. Cut the core after the cabbage is charred.

As an alternative to cabbage considering charring any of the following keto-friendly (above-ground) vegetables:

  • cauliflower
  • zucchini rounds
  • green and/or red peppers
  • asparagus

Root vegetables such as potatoes and sweet potatoes contain more carbohydrates and are not great choices when following a keto-diet.

LIVING KETO

The ketogenic diet is very low in carbs, and high in fats. It’s very similar to the Atkins/low carb diets. Basically, the diet involves the drastic reduction of carbohydrate intake ,while increasing fat intake.

Follow these simple rules:

  • EAT meat, fish eggs, butter, cream, cheese, nuts, seeds, healthy oils, low carb vegetables (mentioned above), avocados
  • AVOID sugary foods, grains, starches, fruit, beans, root vegetables, unhealthy fats, alcohol, low fat, diet products
