Keto Sweet & Sour Chicken

Keto Sweet & Sour Chicken

The key component of sweet and sour chicken is in the sauce, and that is what this recipe is all about. Especially for us on the Keto diet who should stay away from soy and sugar. This is soy-free and sugar-free, and tastes like the real deal!

Then, to give the chicken that “breaded” texture, just add some Parmesan cheese over the freshly cooked chicken and you’ve got the desired texture.
