Yummy Delicous Sugar Free Sweet and Sour Chicken

WOW I lucked out with this, I happened to have these ingredients on hand and thought I would work out a recipe for sweet and sour chicken. I have avoided this in the past because I hate dumping a bunch of sugar in a sauce, so I decided to substitute Stevia. The results were delicious!

Sweet and Sour Chicken

1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 red bell pepper
1/2 or more medium onion
2 cloves garlic
2 cups orange and yellow baby carrots (if you can find them)
1 cup or more of broccoli (optional)
2 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup Organic Corn Starch (more if you want a thicker sauce)
2-4 tbsp wheat free soy sauce (depending upon taste)
1 tbsp stevia powder (taste the sauce to your sweetness preference, avoid putting too much or it will be bitter, although this recipe can mask that quite a bit.)
1-3 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar (depending upon how sour you want it)
2-4 cups cooked shredded chicken meat (either use leftover chicken or cook a couple of breasts and thighs in a crockpot for several hours, covered with water some onions and carrots and a bit of sea salt)
1-2 cups Jasmine or Basmati Rice (according to how many people are to be served)

Start out by sauteeing the bell pepper, onion, baby carrots and broccoli in the olive oil. Add the garlic and saute a few minutes more until the garlic is slightly browned (it won't take long). Add the chicken stock and sprinkle the agar agar flakes over the top add the wheat free soy sauce and the stevia powder. Taste the sauce then add apple cider vinegar to add zest. If needed add sea salt to your preference. When the sauce is boiling add the shredded chicken. Serve over Jasmine or basmati rice.

Have fun with this, enjoy!
