Completely Keto Kung Pao Chicken
Put the chicken in a bowl and top with the xanthan gum, water and pepper. Mix around to fully coat the chicken and let it for 120 seconds.
Heat the avocado oil in a sauce pan over high flame. Once oil is fully heated start dropping in the chicken cubes to fry for 4-5 minutes. Let the finished cubes sit on paper towels when done.
Remove oil from the pan and add in all the sauce ingredients. Let it cook while mixing until sauce becomes thick which should take about 3 minutes.
Add in the chicken and scallions into the pan then mix around to coat it fully. Top with the peanuts.
