½teaspoonxanthan gumoptional to thicken the sauce, added slowly
Beat the eggs with the milk in a small bowl. In another bowl combine the Whey Protein Isolate and the salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients except for the xanthan gum. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a 10” or larger cast-iron skillet over medium heat. The oil should be 350° F.
Once the skillet is hot, dip the chicken pieces one by one into the egg mixture then into the Whey mixture. Immediately drop into the oil and fry 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown – fry in batches making sure to not overcrowd the skillet. Once the chicken is fried transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the excess oil.
Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the oil from the pan and place back over medium heat.
Pour in the sauce and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. The sauce should begin to thicken. Sprinkle in optional xanthan gum and whisk continuously to thicken. When the sauce is thick, add the chicken pieces back to the skillet to heat through, about 2 minutes.
Serve with cauliflower rice and top with green onions.
