What Makes A Clean Eating Chicken Stirfry?
- Lean protein – thinly sliced chicken or turkey breast, or chicken or turkey meatballs you’ve made yourself. Even lean beef strips, or tofu.

Making it at home means you’ll know exactly what goes into it, and the beauty of it is that once you done it a few times, you’ll realise that you can multi-task that sauce to work on many different other recipes, not just stirfrys.
perhaps as a drizzling sauce over baked chicken thighs.
Or, as the cooking liquid for chicken or beef in your slow cooker.
