Spicy Chicken & Broccoli in Chili Garlic Sauce (Low Carb)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sooz Cooks

Always on the quest to find good low carb meals, this is one that we all love. Adjust the amount of the Chili Garlic Sauce you use depending on how spicy you like this dish. You can always add more at the table but you can't take it out!! :-) If we are able to have Dreamfield's pasta, I serve this over their spaghetti noodles and it is delicious (add 5 grams of digestible carbs for Dreamfield's). OR it is great just like it is for super low carb!

I definitely felt like it needed extra chil garlic sauce, and I did add a cornstarch slurry to thicken this up. It was pretty darn good! Also did top it with extra soy and chili garlic sauce when serving. Thanks for sharing, will definitely make this again!
