Coleslaw mix: I prefer using the pre-shredded coleslaw mix from the supermarket as it saves a lot of time. But to make 3 cups coleslaw mix, you can shred 2½ cups white cabbage and mix it with ½ cup shredded (and peeled) carrot.
Protein - Ground chicken can be substituted with ground pork, beef, sausage, turkey, shrimp, Tofu, etc. If using shrimp, throw the raw shrimp at the end of the cooking process as it cooks quickly, depending on its size.
Meat - If using meat, you might need to drain the grease after cooking meat so the dish is not too wet.
Egg - You can scramble an egg in the pan after cooking all other ingredients for additional protein.
Water - You can add a little water to sauté the cabbage if needed.
Veggies - You can double or substitute vegetables in this recipe. Options are endless, such as: broccoli slaw, peppers, mushrooms, snow peas, lettuce leaves, red cabbage, cauliflower rice, edamame, bean sprouts, cut chives, etc. The recipe can also be spooned into lettuce and served.
Soy sauce substitute - If you are on a strict keto diet, then substitute Soy with coconut aminos.
Grains - If you don't care about a low carb diet, then feel free to add your favourite grains to this recipe if you wish. Quinoa, rice and rice noodles are great options. And for crispiness, you can add a few corn tortillas.
Child friendly meal - If you are planing on serving this recipe to children, then you might want to hold of adding Worcestershire sauce while cooking and add it individually at the table instead.
Low sodium - For low sodium option, you can use low sodium soy sauce.
