This easy chicken dinner recipe features the famous Yum Yum Sauce that's served at the hibachi restaurants. It's great with chicken, shrimp or steak.

This ketofied sauce isn't my creation — full credit goes to my friend Anna of Keto In Pearls! When I saw Anna's Keto Yum Yum Sauce on Instagram, I knew I had to try it. This chicken slaw seemed like the perfect recipe — quick and easy, delicious and totally effortless!

How To Make Keto Yum Yum Chicken Slaw

To make this easy chicken salad, you'll only need a few ingredients. Once you prepare the Yum Yum Sauce, you'll be pouring it over shredded cabbage, sliced onions, grated carrot and shredded poached chicken breasts.

When I made the Yum Yum Sauce, I kept the ingredients almost unchanged from the original recipe and I only swapped the rice wine vinegar with apple cider vinegar just because I didn't have any. I then tweaked the amounts to make enough sauce for this low-carb chicken salad. You'll need a generous amount to make sure the salad isn't too dry.

Here are a few more tips for the Yum Yum Sauce recipe:

  • The original Yum Yum Sauce recipe uses powdered low-carb sweetener (Erythritol or Swerve) which can either be omitted or it can be substituted with a few drops of stevia.
  • I used ready-made avocado oil mayonnaise. If you can't get ready-made, you can make your own Mayonnaise by using healthy fats such as avocado oil, walnut oil or macadamia oil.
  • I used homemade Fermented Sriracha Sauce but ready-made sriracha will work just fine. Look for sugar-free options.
  • Finally, I used tomato paste in mine. For more flavor you can swap the tomato paste with sugar-free ketchup (here's an easy way to make Sugar-Free Ketchup at home).

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
