My family and I love panda express for those quick Chinese food cravings, but we also know that most of their menu items are packed carbs.

And what may fly under the radar is how many carbs are actually packed in the sauces they use for most of their dishes.

That’s why I created a black pepper chicken recipe that not only rivals the Panda Express version but is also low carb and keto friendly!

It’s a super easy dish from start to finish and I guarantee that once you make this you will be making it over and over again!
