Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for ready to use.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of peanut oil/ canola oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat.  When the oil is hot (but not smoking) add the green onions and stir-fry for 30 seconds, until softened.  Add the garlic and red chili flakes and stir-fry for 10 more seconds.

Set aside  Return the chicken mixture to the pan with the vegetables and gently fold in the cooked marinade.  Remove from heat and stir in HALF of the basil.
  6. Divide the stir-fry between two bowls, garnish with the remaining basil and enjoy!

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
