Instructions:

1. Prepare the Chicken:
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  • In another bowl, mix the almond flour and coconut flour.
  • Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, allowing any excess to drip off, and then coat it with the flour mixture. Ensure the chicken pieces are evenly coated.
2. Fry the Chicken:
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken pieces and cook until they are crispy and golden brown on all sides. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.
3. Make the Sweet and Sour Sauce:
  • In a separate pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, diced onions, and diced bell peppers. Sauté until they become tender.
  • Add apple cider vinegar, low-carb ketchup, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), sweetener, and water to the pan. Stir well.
  • Simmer the sauce for about 5-7 minutes until it thickens and the flavors meld.
4. Combine and Serve:
  • Add the fried chicken pieces to the sweet and sour sauce. Stir to coat the chicken evenly with the sauce.
  • Serve your Keto Sweet and Sour Chicken over cauliflower rice or with steamed broccoli if desired.
