Keto Kung Pao Chicken * Low Carb * Gluten Free * Dairy Free * Feingold friendly

My kids love Chinese food.  Since one of my kids eats dairy free and chinese food tends to be dairy free, it has become a staple in our home.  I have been working on a low carb, clean version. Every time I make it, it is a hit with the whole family so I think it’s time to share the recipe with you.  I love it because it is really easy to make too.

This would be good wrapped in bibb lettuce, but I usually pile it up on top of a bed of riced cauliflower.  I didn’t even tell my kids, that the rice was really caulifower and no one even noticed.  I prep the riced cauliflower by spreading it out on a cookie sheet and cooking in the oven at about 200 for about an hour.  This helps dry it out a little so it can take on the juices and flavors of the sauce.  If you have a Trader Joes, they sell the riced cauliflower in the produce section.  If not, you can take a head of raw cauliflower and grate it with a cheese grater.

My husband and I like it with a little kick so I usually serve the kids plates, and then add the chili sauce to the skillet and give it a good toss before serving my husband and myself.  Everyone is happy and I didn’t have to make 5 different meals! Gotta love that.

(Note: You’ll want to avoid the chili sauce for those on Feingold Stage 1)
