Paleo Sweet & Sour Chicken with Cauliflower Rice
2 chicken breasts cut into small cubes
1 whole cauliflower, grated or blended until a rice consistency
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. grated ginger
1 cup chicken stock
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup honey/coconut sugar/syrup
4 tbsp. tomato puree
½ tbsp. salt
1 tbsp. black pepper
1 cup arrowroot/corn starch
1-2 tsp. salt
1-2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
A handful of chopped spring onions
A sprinkle of sesame seeds
Fry the onions, garlic and ginger in the oil for a few minutes until soft.
Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for approximately twenty minutes until you have a slightly thick consistency.
In the meantime, in a bowl add and mix in the salt, pepper and garlic powder to the arrowroot powder.
In a separate bowl whisk the eggs until frothy.
Coat the chicken pieces in the egg and then coat them in the flour. Place the coated chicken aside and heat a frying pan.
Add some oil and when hot, add the chicken pieces, a little at a time so that the pieces are equally cooked.
Fry for approximately 10 minutes or until the chicken pieces are cooked through, golden brown and crispy. Turn the heat down if needed to avoid cooking the chicken too quickly.
Continue until all the chicken is fried, before adding to the sauce and cooking everything for a further five minutes.
Whilst the sweet and sour chicken is cooking, take the cauliflower rice and heat in a pan for a few minutes until warm.
Remove before too much liquid is produced and the cauliflower starts to get mushy.
Serve the rice with the sweet and sour chicken and garnish with the chopped spring onions and sesame seeds.
Both the authentic tasting chicken and cauliflower rice combine to make this a really tasty meal that I know you'll love. It's ready in less than thirty minutes, low in fat and of course, gluten-free!
