Prepping the Chicken
In a large bowl, crack an egg open. Whisk the egg.
Place the chicken over the whisked egg. Mix the chicken well with the egg. Using your hands will make for a better dish.
Pour 1 cup of almond flour, white pepper, salt, and monkfruit sweetener over the chicken. Mix with hands. Again, mix it well so batter sticks to chicken.
Time to make our Sauce!
Medium heat a wok or frying pan. Add about a tablespoon of oil. Throw in the garlic, scallion whites, and dried chili peppers. Let the aromatics infuse with the oil, about 1.5 minutes or when garlic is golden brown.
Pour in 3 tablespoons of Chicken Broth. Add in the orange extract, monkfruit sweetener, ground ginger, apple cider vinegar, coconut amino, and sesame oil. Mix together well. Turn the heat up for it to boil.
As sauce is boiling, pour in 2 tablespoon of almond flour. This will act as a thickening agent. It should thicken in about a minute. Sauce is ready.
Throw the chicken onto the sauce. Switch heat to Med-High. Stir and toss chicken well for about a minute. Your Keto General Tso's Chicken is now ready to eat!
Enjoy! Optional: Add Steamed broccoli for a more complete meal.
