Chinese food has been a weakness for me since I first tasted it. Fried rice, sweet and sour chicken, general tso’s, chow mein. Everything I can’t have on a ketogenic diet. If you’re missing the fried rice, don’t fret – you can make an accompanying Cauliflower Fried Rice!
Through the years I have built up a resistance to Chinese food, eventually not getting cravings for it and not even thinking about it. The other day I was surfing the internet and saw a picture of some delicious looking sweet and sour chicken. All of those memories of Chinese food flooded back to my mind, making me crave anything that even resembled a piece of orange chicken.
After that, I saught out to re-create one of my all time favorites: Sweet and Sour Chicken. But to make it low carb? Well that’s a challenge, isn’t it. The judgement? It was a winner! Family and friends enjoyed it and between 4 people, 5 1/2 pounds of chicken was eaten in 1 sitting.
