What kind of chicken should I use with Chicken Teriyaki Stir-fry Recipe?

I am trying to eat low carb. What are some suggestions to modify this recipe?
Serving cauliflower rice with the chicken is a great idea. You can also use xanthan gum instead of cornstarch. Just add it a bit at a time as needed because it thickens fast.
How do I make a slurry?
You just mix 2 parts water and 2 part cornstarch together in a small cup or dish, making sure there are no lumps. Then you add it to your pan of liquid you are trying to thicken. Usually you add 1-1 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch per one cup liquid in your recipe. So if your recipe calls for 2 cups water, for an example, you would use about 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch and about 1/4 cup of water to make your slurry.
