Keto Chinese Sesame Chicken Low Carb Recipe | KetoVale

Keto Sesame Chicken

This sesame chicken is a very common dish that can find in Chinese restaurants. To make this recipe low carb and keto friendly, we adjust the ingredients a little bit.

You can use guar gum powder (or xanthan gum) to replace corn starch which is used to thicken the sauce. For soy sauce, you can replace it with coconut aminos.

To make it taste sweet, you can use keto-sweetener such as liquid Stevia. We use Sukrin Gold which is made of erythritol. It’s an alternative to natural brown sugar. It has the texture, aroma, sweetness, and flavour of brown sugar without calories.

The secret of this recipe is in the coating, the sauce and how you fry the chicken.

For the meat to be crispy, you should use a large pan. If you have a small pan, you can divide the chicken into 2 parts and fry them twice, otherwise, if you put too much chicken in at the same time, the meat will release too much water and it will become steamed instead of fried.

You can serve this sesame chicken with steamed green beans. Green beans are okay in moderation for keto. If you don’t want, try broccoli or cauliflower.
