Delicious Chinese takeout isn't too high up on the list of foods that fit into a low or slow carb lifestyle. Sometimes, though, you just really want to dig into some delicious Asian dishes for their sheer comfort factor. But can you have the best of both worlds and indulge in these foods without derailing your progress? Yes, indeed! This low carb sesame chicken is easy, low carb, and can be served over a bed of cauliflower rice, especially my delicious low carb cauliflower fried rice. Amazing.
One of the best parts of sesame chicken is that thick, sweetened sauce that enrobes the chicken pieces. To lower the carbs, I sweetened my sauce using Swerve, my favorite low carb sweetener (not sponsored!) It works so well in cooking and baking, it's natural, and it doesn't have any weird chemical-y flavors. Now, you are welcome to use your favorite sweetener if you don't have any Swerve, you may just need to taste and adjust the amount used to achieve the desired amount of sweetness.
This is on the table in less than 30 minutes and it's so amazing. You can have your veggies steaming on the side while preparing the chicken and you'll have a full, healthy meal ready to go.
Don't you love finding healthier versions of favorite indulgent dishes? Me too. Enjoy!Print
