Keto Sweet ‘N’ Spicy Chicken – A Savory Low Carb Treat

Are you looking for a delicious keto-friendly meal? Look no further than Keto Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Chicken! This tasty dish packs all the flavor of traditional fried chicken, but is low in carbs – perfect for any dieter.

This recipe features crispy chicken pieces marinated in a sweet and spicy sauce. It’s easy to make, takes less than 30 minutes, and is sure to satisfy all your cravings.

The key to making this dish is to coat the chicken with the marinade. To do this, mix together brown sugar, white wine vinegar, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and ground cumin. Whisk in some melted butter and season with salt and pepper.

Rub the chicken pieces with the marinade. Make sure to coat the chicken thoroughly. The longer the chicken marinates, the more flavor it will absorb. For best results, let it marinate for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to cook, heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add some bacon fat or ghee and let it get hot. Place the chicken pieces in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy.

While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. To do this, whisk together ¼ cup of chili sauce, ¼ cup of ketchup, 1 tablespoon of sriracha, and some low-carb maple syrup in a small bowl. Taste and adjust until you achieve the flavor you’re looking for.

When the chicken is done cooking, spoon the sauce over the pieces and let them simmer for a few minutes, until the sauce thickens. Serve with your favorite keto-friendly sides and enjoy!
