Variations and Modifications
You can make this recipe with a different vegetable and change of the seasoning to have a nice variety of chicken dishes to choose from. Chicken kale stir fry is one of my go to meal prep dishes because the ingredients are minimal and I can whip it up easily.
Try broccoli in place of kale or throw in some bok choy and coconut aminos or soy sauce!
This dish works well as a meal all by itself but you can add some rice to it when you're wanting something a little more filling. When I am going for something lower carb, I just omit the rice and increase the amounts of chicken and veggies to add more volume to the meal. You can also serve chicken kale stir fry with cauliflower rice to keep things paleo, low carb and Whole30 compliant if that's your dietary preference.
