Paleo sweet and sour chicken aka healthy Chinese food without MSG, high fructose corn syrup, vegetable oils or GMOs!
- 1 large chicken breast, cut into pieces
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 2 tbsp pastured lard or expeller pressed coconut oil – it has no coconut flavor
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 4 tbsp apple sider vinegar (use less for a less sour taste)
- 2 tbsp Ketchup
- 1 tbsp coconut aminos
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced (you can use more or less, I love garlic)
- Heat the oil over medium to medium high heat.
- Dredge the chicken in tapioca flour you don’t need egg, it just needs to be wet. You can dip the chicken in water, the tapioca flour will adhere.
- Add the chicken to the oil and fry on each side until cooked and crispy.
- While the chicken frying, add all the sauce ingredients to a separate pan.
- Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally.
- Let it thicken.
- At the end, add the garlic.
- Once both the chicken and sauce are done toss together.
- Serve over white rice (find out why it’s healthy and a paleo approved safe starch here) or cauliflower rice.
