Tips To Working This Mexican Chicken Stir Fry Into Your Specialty Diet:


-Take Shape For Life Diet Mexican Chicken Stir Fry.

To make this recipe adaptable for a take shape for life plan as your lean & green meal, make sure you watch the spices in coordination with your condiments allowance for the day. The olive oil takes up your 1 healthy fat allowance, and the spices will use up your 3 condiment servings. I have noted that the chili powder is optional as it would take you over your condiment servings for the day.

The photo in the dish represents a lean and green meal serving size- I picked out chicken and weighed it out to 6 ounces, and measured out 3 1/2 cup servings of the vegetables. Since cooking the chicken with the broccoli and peppers makes it more flavorful, without adding additional calories.

-Keto Chicken and Vegetables Mexican Stir Fry Dinner.

To make this recipe great for a keto diet, try it with some shredded sharp cheddar or jack cheese melted over the top, and you could also mix in up to 1/2 cup of heavy cream for a rich and fattening meal that is totally addictively creamy! Adding in avocado or sour cream are a great way to get the right macros, too.

Depending on your macros for the day, you might cut the onion from the dish and slightly reduce garlic, since they are higher in carbs. I prefer them in for flavor – but it depends where you are for the day’s macros.

-Vegan Chicken and Vegetables Mexican Stir Fry


To make this delicious Mexican Chicken Stir Fry suitable for a vegan diet, there are a couple of swaps you can make.

-Swap Quorn chicken tenders or other meat alternative for cubed chicken meat. This will reduce chicken cook time, and change when you add to the stir fry – add just after onions so it can brown with onions.

-Swap portobello mushrooms or cauliflower steaks for chicken.

Both are packed with flavor and



-Family Friendly (non low carb) Mexican Chicken and Rice Skillet


Finally, you can make this a truly family-pleasing dinner by adding in some spanish rice for a flavor the whole family loves!

Simply add the rice right after vegetables and chicken have browned, tossing the rice in the olive oil to “toast” it slightly.

Add in water (the amount listed on the rice you choose) as well as any seasoning packets in the rice + 1 can of diced tomatoes (again, as called for on the brand of Spanish or yellow rice you buy.)

Cover and let cook fully until rice is tender and chicken has reached 165 internal temperature.
