Try this mouth-watering Paleo Sweet and Sour Chicken - a gluten-free alternative to your favorite Chinese restaurant made with real food ingredients.
Preheat your oven to 250°F/120C. In a wok or skillet, warm the coconut oil over medium heat. Combine the tapioca starch, salt, and pepper, then toss the chicken pieces with the starch mixture. With your fingers, dip a starchy chicken piece in the beaten eggs, shake off the excess egg, and then add to the oil. Repeat until you have filled your skillet, being careful not to overcrowd the chicken pieces.
Consider adding chunks of onion, bell pepper, or even pineapple to enhance the flavor of this dish. These ingredients should be added with the starch slurry in step 4.
This dish is equally delicious made with sliced pork loin or shrimp.
