This is one of my favourite keto recipes. I am a huge fan of Southern Fried Chicken, so when I first went on the ketogenic diet I had to find a substitute, and boy did I find one! This recipe is so good I now prefer it to traditional fired chicken. Great food for the weekends, and is amazing served with our Keto Blue Cheese Dip.
Slice up your chicken into strips, about 5-6 pieces per breast. Lay your chicken strips out on a plate.
Mix together all your dry ingredients, except for the almond flour. Make sure they are mixed well.
Using half of the spice mix you want to coat the chicken evenly. You can do this by sprinkling it from a height of about two feet above the plate. Turn over the chicken and coat the other side.
Hold back half of your spice mix for the next step.
Combine your remaining spices with your almond flour in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk your egg well.
Now it's time to make your tenders! Take a the chicken one piece at a time, and dunk it into the egg, and then dunk it straight into the almond flour mixture. You will want to roll it around in the flour to make sure it is evenly coated. I'd recommend using a tongs or other utensil for this, as the mixture can get pretty sticky and messy on your fingers.
Place the coated chicken on a greased baking tray as you go.
When you have all your chicken coated, you will pop the baking tray into the oven at about 350 degrees F (180C) for 22 mins, turning halfway though.
There you have it! A delicious alternative to southern fried chicken, and it is amazing with our Keto Blue Cheese Dip. Let us know what you think in the comments.
