Chinese Ketchup Chicken – Keto, Sugar Free, Low carb

 Chinese Ketchup Chicken – Keto, Sugar Free, Low carb

Who does not love Chinese food? I mean the American style Chinese food that is basically a sweet and salty sugar bomb. I do keto to heal my autoimmune (RA) so sugar is a no no unless I want joint pain. I was sent a few bottles of sauces from Alterna Sweets. last week. I decided to try my hand at a sweet and salty chicken recipe using their sweet and spicy ketchup. Alterna Sweets sweeten their sauces with Erythritol instead of sugar.  My daughter and I ate this for lunch and let me tell you, it is kid approved as well.

When I make low carb Chinese food these day’s I do not add a breading. In America most Chinese food is battered and fried. I do not even miss the batter anymore. I have found that it is lighter and tastes just as good without the breading.

This recipe goes great with my Cauliflower Fried Rice.

  1. I just found the brand Primal Kitchen. They have a spicy ketchup without any artificial sweeteners. I wonder if it would be a good ketchup to use in this recipe?
