KETO LOW CARB SWEET CHILI CHICKEN. To fry the chicken, this Sweet Chili Chicken recipe uses egg white protein powder and the Chili Sauce is completely Sugar Free/Gluten Free.
THAI SWEET CHILI SAUCE
A low carb sweet chili sauce that could be thickened up without having to use cornstarch, sugar or honey, I was wondering how I could make. Its stickiness and sweetness is the greatest aspect of a Thai sweet chili sauce. To get that perfect consistency, you have to use so much sugar.
I used orange marmalade for this recipe because there aren’t many products that are similar to honey in the low carb world.
Find a sugar-free version though, you really have to make sure! You really have to look at the label carefully! Make sure your marmalade is only sweetened with the orange fruit because most brands will include either sucralose, maltodextrin or asparatame.
So that it would end up spicier and more red in color, I altered the Thai sweet chili sauce recipe! It became even more sticky and red because the sauce was cooked down in the frying pan!
