Keto Orange Chicken

I like chinese food every now and then! I used to make homemade sweet n sour chicken a lot!! Pineapple and rice flour are not keto……so……I found a way to make Orange chicken without the food coloring, without rice starch and amazingly without orange juice!

I recommend getting everything prepped up ahead of time so it will go quickly!

Premix the batter ingredients. Precut the chicken. And you can even get the sauce ingredients together EXCEPT for the glucommannon if you wish!

Here is the baking mix recipe! Visit here to see suggestions on ingredients to make it!

Now you can top cauliflower rice or stir fried cabbage with it. I chose cabbage!

Put cabbage or rice in bowl. Put chicken on top then spoon on sauce. I sprinkled mine with 2 pinches of sesame seeds.
