Traditional Asian sweet sauces are often high in carbs because of the sugar content. So this recipe comes with a surprise ingredient: diet ginger ale! It adds flavor, liquid and sweetness – all without a single carbohydrate.
Prepare the sauce first. Mix together ground ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and tomato paste. Add the ginger ale and stir well to mix. Sprinkle over some xanthan gum (a low carb thickener) and stir well so that no clumps have formed. Set aside.
Deseed the peppers and cut into strips. I like to use a mixture of red, orange and yellow – but use whichever you prefer. I’m not much of a fan of green pepper! Cut red onion and chicken breast into slices.
Heat some vegetable oil in a large saute pan and add the red onion. Saute for a few minutes until they have started to soften. Add the chicken and saute until the chicken is just cooked through.
Add the peppers, saute for a few minutes, then add the sauce. Keep cooking until the sauce starts to thicken.
Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with chopped green onions.
