This recipe was created because I decided to remake my low carb sweet and sour sauce with different thickening agent options.

And then of course, I had lots of sauce! So I used some for my new sweet and sour wings recipe and then most of the rest went into this chicken dish. This recipe is actually slightly unusual for me because it includes green peppers – I'm not usually a fan but it felt right with the other ingredients and worked out really well.

How to Make Keto Sweet and Sour Chicken

I highly recommend making the sauce in advance – it keeps so well in the fridge! But of course you could make it at the same time as cooking the chicken if you preferred.

Dice some chicken breast or tenderloins.

Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat, and add the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes, turning the pieces occasionally. Add a chopped bell pepper – I used half red and half green, but you could use the same color.

Continue cooking until the peppers are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Add the sauce – I like about ¾ cup but you might like more or less than that. Stir to mix the sauce into the chicken and peppers, and warm through.Keto Sweet and Sour Chicken - a sugar free Chinese recipe with homemade sauce
