A simple stir fry of chicken with chillies, garlic, shallots and fresh basil is all that’s in this incredible dish. It’s normally served with rice and a friend egg. On Keto though we’ll serve it with cauliflower rice or lettuce cups. It’s an incredibly flavourful dish and will definitely spice up your Keto meals. Enjoy!
