Ingredients

  • 500 grams Chicken thighs boneless
  • 1 tsp Garlic chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger chopped
  • 50 grams Spring onion
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp Rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • Oil/ Lard for deep frying
  • 1 tbsp Chicken fat
  • ¼ cup Chicken stock
  • 4 Red chilies dried
  • Stevia or preferred sweetener to taste

Instructions

  • Cut chicken into small bite-size pieces and then add chicken into a mixing bowl. Now season with salt and pepper and marinate with soya sauce, vinegar, sesame oil baking powder, and egg.
  • Now individually coat each chicken piece into psyllium husk and then heat oil into the pan and then deep fry chicken pieces into batches.
  • Fry chicken for 3-4 minutes until it's nice and golden brown and soft and well cooked from inside.
  • After chicken pieces are cooked well from inside, take them out into a plate with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  • In a frying pan heat up the chicken fat or any healthy fat(keto-approved) and as it melts, add chopped spring onions, garlic, ginger and fry until they turn golden brown.
  • Now add rice wine vinegar, soya sauce, and stevia. Cook until they start to reduce into a sauce and then add dried red chilies, chicken stock, or any stock you like and reduce it to a thick sauce.
  • And as the sauce is formed add deep-fried chicken pieces and coat each piece with this beautiful and shiny sauce and glaze it to give the chicken a sweet and sour taste as well as shiny finish.
  • Take it into a bowl and sprinkle some freshly chopped spring onions and sesame seeds and it is ready to be served.

Notes

Do not put the flame on high, when you are deep frying the chicken because the chicken will start to burn and chicken pieces will not be cooked dwell from inside.
you can use oil, fat, and stock of your choice as everyone has its own taste and preference.
