- 1/2 cup Arrowroot Powder
- 1/2 cup Cassava Flour
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

- 1/4 cup Ghee
- 5 whole Dates (Medjool), pureed
- 3 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 3 Tbsp Coconut Aminos
- 3/4 cup Avocado Oil, for cooking so amount varies
- 2 tsp Sesame Seeds, garnish
Combine in a large bowI, arrowroot, cassava, garlic powder and water.
Whisk till combined, you want it thick.
Add chicken to mixture, stir to coat.
Pour oil in a pan so it's a bit more than coated.
Fry chicken without moving till golden.
Flip and cook other side.
Move to a plate lined with paper towels.
Meanwhile, combine in a saucepan, ghee, pureed dates, Dijon and coconut aminos.
Cook on low till sauce is bubbly, it will be thick.
