Now what’s the next takeout/restaurant favorite you want me to ketofy?! ———— Crispy Sesame Chicken Makes 4 Servings 1 Serving: 262 Calories, 17g Fat, 2g Carbs, 24g Protein Start to table time: 15-20 mins 1 large egg 1⁄2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp coconut flour 1 pinch each salt and pepper 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs 2 Tbsp olive oil Sauce 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 Tbsp water 1 Tbsp sesame oil 3 Tbsp brown Swerve or plain erythritol 1 Tbsp white vinegar 1 tsp ground ginger 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 Tbsp sesame seeds 1⁄4- 1⁄2 tsp xanthan gum (depends on how thick you want the sauce) Directions: 1. Start with the sauce. In a small bowl stir together the soy sauce, water, sesame oil, brown Swerve, vinegar, ginger, minced garlic, xanthan gum, and sesame seeds. Set the sauce aside. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, baking powder, and coconut flour, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Trim any excess fat from the chicken thighs, then cut them into small 1 inch pieces. Toss the chicken in the egg mixture. 3. Add the oil to a large skillet and heat it over medium heat. Once the skillet and oil is hot add the batter coated chicken and spread it out into a single layer over the surface of the skillet. 4. Allow the chicken pieces to cook, undisturbed, until golden brown on the bottom. Then, carefully flip the chicken, breaking up the pieces into smaller clumps as you flip. Continue to cook the chicken until golden brown on the other side. 5. Once the chicken is cooked through and golden brown on all sides(about 5-8 mins), pour the sauce over top. Toss the chicken to coat in the sauce. As the sauce comes up to a simmer, it will begin to thicken. Continue to gently stir the chicken in the sauce until it has thickened, then turn off the heat.
