Keto Sweet and Sour Chicken

Delicious crispy chicken with a low carb sweet and sour sauce.

This low carb sweet and sour chicken is the perfect crispy chicken alternative to the Chinese takeout you know and love. Most homemade sweet and sour chicken recipes are just plain chicken tossed in sauce, but that doesn’t really help curb the craving for delivery food. That’s why we’ve made a keto friendly crispy chicken that is covered in sugar free sweet and sour sauce. You crisp the chicken first by covering it with an almond flour and coconut flour mix and then frying in avocado oil. Then, simply finish up the dish in the oven with the sauce and you’ve got yourself an authentic homemade sweet and sour chicken dinner to serve.

You can make keto crispy chicken without having to deep fry the chicken. In fact, all this low carb sweet and sour chicken needs is to be browned first in a skillet. No need for buying a deep fryer or a dutch oven. Since this sugar free sweet and sour chicken is not deep fried, it’s healthier for you than the takeout option. It’s a great Panda Express keto copycat recipe that you can easily make as a weeknight dinner.

How to make sweet and sour chicken keto friendly.

If you’ve ever felt bloated after eating takeout sweet and sour chicken, but you love the taste of the dish, this recipe is for you. Using a keto mix of almond and coconut flour, you can make a low carb breading for crispy chicken that is totally keto friendly. Then, you brown the chicken in avocado oil before finishing up in the oven.

As for the sauce, we use our sugar free maple syrup to sweeten the sweet and sour sauce along with keto friendly ketchup. Most sweet and sour chicken is made with lots of extra sugar from the maple syrup and ketchup, so changing up these ingredients will help you create a keto friendly sauce perfect for replicating your favorite Chinese takeout.

 

How to make keto chicken crispy without deep frying.

If you don’t have a deep fryer or a dutch oven to deep fry chicken, don’t worry. You don’t need to deep fry chicken to make it crispy. In this recipe, the chicken is dredged in a keto friendly mixture of almond flour and coconut flour before being fried in a large skillet to brown. You won’t be cooking the chicken completely in the skillet. Instead, you can finish up crispy chicken in the oven to cook completely.

How to thicken sugar free sweet and sour sauce.

We suggest adding the keto sweet and sour sauce while the chicken bakes in the oven, but you can also toss the chicken in the sauce later if you prefer. Just make sure to thicken the sauce on the stovetop by simmering for a couple minutes while whisking.

 

What can I serve with low carb sweet and sour chicken?

You can serve sugar free sweet and sour chicken with chopped bell peppers and cauliflower rice. Bell peppers are keto friendly because they are low in carbs. Cauliflower rice is a great low carb alternative to grain rice.

 

How to store homemade sweet and sour chicken.

Store your keto sweet and sour chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. We suggest reheating in the microwave.
