LCA’s Top 5 Chicken Recipe

Top Asian Chicken Recipes - Yakitori Chicken

Keto Japanese Chicken Skewers – Yakitori

Net Carbs ~3 per serving

Yakitori, which translates to ‘grilled chicken’, is a classic Japanese chicken bbq dish that is often served as a street food and at festivals.  The chicken is juicy and infused with semi sweet soy sauce and the flavors of charred BBQ.  This is a great recipe for the grill during the warmer summer months!

Top Asian Chicken Recipes - Ozoni Chicken

Keto Japanese Chicken Soup – Ozoni

Net Carbs ~2 per serving

Ozoni is the classic soup served on New Years Day in Japanese culture.   It is light, delicate and glistening with chicken oils adding great nutritional benefits.  The idea behind this soup is to start the New Year off with a good hearty and healthy meal to get your body ready for the rest of the year!  But of course, it doesn’t have to be New Year’s to enjoy this classic dish!

Top Asian Chicken Recipes - Garlic Chicken Fried Rice

Garlic Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

Net Carbs ~5 per serving

Fried rice is one of the most iconic Asian dishes in the world!  Most Asian cultures have their ‘version’ of fried rice.  From the Chinese classic, Korean kimchi fried rice, to Thai pineapple fried rice, the list really does go on.  LCA’s version is somewhat a mix of everything as we based it off Benihana’s awesome Garlic Chicken Fried Rice.  It is garlicky, peppery, chicken-y and most importantly, low-carb/keto!

Top Asian Chicken Recipes - Chicken Teriyaki

Teriyaki Chicken

Net Carbs ~2 per serving

Given how teriyaki is pretty much a household term, we felt it deserved a spot in the top 5.  Teriyaki does go with many meats, but it is hard to find a better pairing then the sauce drizzled over a nice juicy seared chicken!  Our version tastes just like classic teriyaki but with a fraction of the carbs!  Definitely a good one if you are a fan of teriyaki!

Top Asian Chicken Recipes - Seasme Chicken Stir Fry

Sesame Chicken Stir Fry

Net Carbs ~2 per serving

Rounding out the TOP 5 Asian chicken recipes is our Sesame Chicken Stir Fry.  This recipe is based more on Chinese stir fry, but a LCA fusion nonetheless.  It is simple and fast to make, yet packs some serious flavors along with the juicy chicken meat!  So next time you are short on time, stir fry this one up!


And with that concludes our TOP 5 Low Carb / Keto Asian Chicken Recipes!!  Hope you found something you like and get them cooking in your kitchen soon!

  1. So how do you make the cauliflower rice itself? I’ve seen your ‘ways to prepare cauliflower rice” but there’s no explanation as to how to actually prepare the cauliflower rice. Sort of assumes we already have it made.

    Your recipes look awesome !

      Hey Art! It’s best to just buy the cauliflower rice. We use the frozen ones, but you can use fresh pre-made if you prefer. If you really want, you can make fresh cauliflower rice with a food processor, but we don’t think it’s worth it as it takes time and hard to get the right consistency. Thanks and welcome to LCA!
