WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE KETO CHICKEN EGG ROLL BOWLS
- Oil: I prefer to use sesame or olive oil, but you could easily swap them for another oil you prefer. Avocado or coconut oil would be excellent choices too.
- Ground Chicken: The texture that the ground chicken gives the easy egg roll in a bowl is out of this world! If you don’t have any ground chicken, you could always finely chop chicken breast or thighs instead. It will taste great either way.
- Green Onion: Adding green onion doesn’t just give the dish flavor; it adds gorgeous color too. You can also use finely chopped onion or shallot instead. It’s a super versatile dish!
- Garlic: Follow your preferences on the amount of garlic. I usually stick to 2-3 large cloves, and it makes this egg roll in a bowl recipe irresistible. But you can add more or less depending on your preferences.
- Ground Ginger: A little bit of ground ginger goes a long way in enhancing the way this low carb dish tastes. It’s so good!
- Coleslaw: You can shred the cabbage yourself or buy a pre-packaged bag. Either way, make sure you have some shredded carrots in there for color and natural sweetness.
- Gluten-Free Soy Sauce: Liquid aminos or coconut aminos are perfect for gluten-free soy sauce. You won’t even miss the regular stuff either!
- Sriracha Sauce: The sriracha is where you get a little bit of heat in this egg roll in a bowl. You can increase the amount of even put in less if you want. I love the little kick that the sriracha gives.

No, you don’t have to use chicken, you can easily substitute it for another low carb protein. Ground beef, ground turkey, and even sausage would all be fantastic choices. They each add their own element of flavor, so go with what you enjoy.
