Chinese Sweet and Sour Chicken Base
Sweet and sour chicken is a great paleo diet dish. When the chicken is well battered and fried, you will enjoy every slice.

One thing you must appreciate when it comes to chicken is the white meat which is better by far than the red meat. That is because red meat has more saturated fat and cholesterol as compared to white meat, for instance chicken. That gives you more reason to enjoy this sweet and sour delicacy.
If you are on a paleo or gluten-free diet, then this dish will serve you right. It can be a bit tricky finding the right Chinese takeout that is on the Paleo diet. That makes this dish quite precious. The primary ingredient of this dish is chicken nuggets.
You can serve the sweet and sour chicken with either salad or rice. The secret to a good crispy coating is adding a bit of tapioca flour that will give it that original paleo friendly coating. You might find some versions of this dish containing vinegar as a substitute of plum sauce. All in all, the sweet and sour chicken will warm its way into your heart.
