INSTRUCTIONS

SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE – USE ONLY 1/4 CUP FOR THE RECIPE

  1. Place the tomato paste, broth, sweetener, vinegar, lime juice, fish sauce, salt, garlic powder and ginger in a medium-zied saucepan over medium heat.  Stir well to combine.  Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened to your liking. Remove from the heat and let cool.  Sift in the guar gum, if using, and whisk until well combined.  Pour the sauce into a jar and refrigerate until ready to use.

CHICKEN

  1. Heat the oil in a 4-inch-deep (or deeper) cast-iron skillet over medium heat at 350 degrees.  The oil should be 1 inch deep, add more if needed.

  2. Bread the chicken: Crack the eggs into a shallow baking dish and beat lightly with a fork.  In another shallow baking dish, combine the powdered Parmesan and pepper.  Dip a chicken nugget into the eggs, then the cheese mixture. Coat well.

  3. When the oil is hot, fry the nuggets in batches for about 5 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

  4. Baste the fried chicken nuggets with the sauce.  Serve over cauliflower  rice and garnish with scallions, if desired
