Cashews in large amounts are not specifically low carb. But in moderation, as with many foods, they can certainly be enjoyed on a low carb eating plan!
And just think of all the fiber and low carb goodness the bok choy adds! Check out our Low Carb Vegetables list if you are even questioning what vegetables you can enjoy while eating low carb.

You have a couple options here on how you can enjoy this recipe once it is made.
- Plain – Enjoy by itself. Easy, simple and nice when you are in a rush.
- Spoon – Spoon into lettuce wraps for Chicken Stir Fry Lettuce Wraps
- With a side – Enjoy with a side of cauliflower ‘rice’ like our recipe here.
My personal favorite is spooning into a lettuce wrap and enjoying with an extra splash of coconut aminos.
Reheating and Meal-preps.Â This recipe re-heats wonderfully so if you are looking for a good meal-prep for lunches or dinner this is it. This bok choy chicken stir fry is actually extremely easy to reheat and tastes amazing the next day. This has become a steady for weeknight meals in our family for this reason.

HOW MANY NET CARBS FOR OUR Bok Choy Chicken Stir Fry
7 Net Carbs when splitting the filling into 4 servings.Â
One serving is enough to fill at least 3-4 wraps. For me it is a filling and a satisfying dinner. If you pair that with a side of cauliflower rice then I think you would be extra full.
So however you divide the servings just keep in mind the info we are providing is for 1/4th of what the recipe makes.
