What Kind of Chicken Should You Use?

Ground chicken breasts work well, and it’s easy to find in the grocery store. You can even use ground chicken thighs if they’re available. If you don’t have ground chicken available in your grocery store, ask the butcher in the meat department if they can ground a pound of chicken breast for you.

Can You Use a Different Meat?

Yes, you can use ground pork (it has a light flavor that goes well with this dish). That would be my preferred recommendation as an alternative to chicken. Ground turkey could be used too, though it’s a little drier. Another option is finely chopped shrimp.

While you can use ground beef, it does change the flavor of this recipe. It’s got a heavier flavor that doesn’t work as well, in my opinion. I prefer either ground chicken or ground pork. If you can’t find ground pork in the store, ask the butcher in the meat department.

Can You Make This Dish Vegetarian?

Yes, there are a few options. You could use 1 package of firm tofu and cut into small chunks. Cook with the sesame oil for a couple of minutes and then add the rest of the ingredients. Or use more vegetables like shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, and sliced red peppers.

Top Tips

  • You can use ground chicken breasts or ground chicken thighs. You could also use ground pork or ground turkey.
  • Use tofu to make this vegetarian.
  • Feel free to use pre made coleslaw to keep things even simpler!
  • Feel free to use gluten free soy sauce or tamari.
  • Additions like baby corn or diced bell pepper would be great to mix in if you want more veggies.
  • Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
