Meat – Chicken breasts are healthy, affordable, and a popular choice in low-carb recipes. Save time and buy pre-cut frozen chicken strips or beef strips. Try using beef, shrimp, or even tofu for a vegetarian ginger stir fry.

Vegetables – Choose any selection of broccoli, cabbage, onions, colorful bell peppers, and carrots! Save time and toss in a frozen bag of mixed veggies like peas, green beans, and peppers.

Sauce – Make a sauce with chicken broth, soy sauce, and fish sauce, or use a jar of ready-made teriyaki sauce. Add some red pepper flakes for a pop of heat and color.
