Sweet and Sour Chicken (Paleo & Low FODMAP)
Sweet and Sour Chicken made healthy with low fodmap, paleo ingredients free of additives and full of flavor.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup (65 grams) arrowroot starch (or cornstarch)
1 large egg beaten
1/4 cup (55 grams) coconut oil
1/2 cup (100 grams) coconut sugar or regular white sugar
1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar*
2 tablespoons coconut aminos (or gluten free soy sauce/tamari)
1/4 cup ketchup - for low fodmap ketchup see the notes
1/4 cup (60 ml) chicken stock
1 red pepper cut into chunks
1 cup pineapple chunks
3 spring onions stalks (green part only for low fodmap)
First prepare the sauce by adding the coconut sugar, vinegar, coconut aminos, chicken stock and ketchup to a medium sauce pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low heat and leave until later.
Add chicken pieces and beaten egg to a large ziplock bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken. Then add the arrowroot starch to the bag, shaking again to lightly coat all the chicken pieces.
Drizzle a large pan or skillet with oil. Add the coated chicken. Fry over medium heat, a couple of minutes on each side until the coating begins to crisp. Add pepper and pineapple chunks. Continue to saute over medium heat until chicken is browned and cooked through.
Add the sauce to chicken and peppers. Cover and reduce the heat down to a simmer and allow the juices to soak into the chicken for a few minutes. Top with sliced green onions. Serve over rice and enjoy!
Recipe Type: Mains
Apple cider vinegar is considered low FODMAP under 2 tablespoons, but if you would prefer another alternative just to be on the safe side you can also use white wine or rice vinegar instead
