This Keto Fried Chicken almond flour recipe will make the perfect Keto fried drumsticks, Keto fried chicken breast or low carb chicken tenders. Originally the recipe was intended to be pan-fried chicken tenders, but I discovered it’s also an easy Keto air fryer recipe too.

Usually Fried chicken is not Keto approved. One this Chicken strip has 22g Carbs. Yikes! However, this Low Carb Fried Chicken Recipe is totally Keto Diet friendly.

Each Keto Fried Chicken Tender is 193 Calories, 9g of fat and 26.8g of protein. The only thing you need to be cautious about is the protein, remember Keto is moderate protein, so I’d only eat one or two of these tenders per meal.


You’ll Need:

Keto Fried Chicken Tenders:

  • 8 Chicken Tenders
  • 24oz Jar of Dill Pickles (you only need the juice)
  • 3/4 Cup Now Foods Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 Cups pork panko (Bread Crumb Substitute)
  • Nutiva Organic Coconut Oilfor frying

Low Carb Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce:

  • 1/2 Cup Mayo
  • 2 tsp Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbs Honey Trees Sugar-Free Honey
  • 1 tbs Organicville BBQ sauce


Instructions:

Pan Fried Keto Chicken Tenders:

  1. Put chicken tenders and pickle juice in a large zip lock bag and marinate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, mix almond flour, salt, and pepper
  3. Create an assembly line of three bowls, one with almond flour mixture, the second with the eggs and the third with the pork panko
  4. Dredge the Chicken in the almond flour mixture, then in the egg and finally in the pork panko until well coated
  5. Now, fill a saute pan about 2 inches with coconut oil and put on medium-high heat. If available use a thermometer and bring oil to 350 F
  6. Once the oil is hot place tenders in the oil and cook about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Air Fryer Fried Keto Chicken Tenders:

  1. Put chicken tenders and pickle juice in a large zip lock bag and marinate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, mix almond flour, salt, and pepper
  3. Create an assembly line of three bowls, one with almond flour mixture, the second with the eggs and the third with the pork panko
  4. Dredge the Chicken in the almond flour mixture, then in the egg and finally in the pork panko until well coated
  5. Set the air fryer to 375 F and cook the chicken for about 15 minutes.

Low Carb Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until fully combined.


NOTES:

  • Honey Trees Sugar-Free Honey, an ingredient in the Chick-Fil-A Sauce is sweetened with similar ingredients as Splenda, I try to eat as natural as possible so I only use small amounts in recipes every now and then
  • PRO TIP: To prevent a disaster, Be sure that you use one hand for dipping in the wet ingredients and the other hand for dry ingredients.
  • I have tried making these fried Chicken tenders by grinding up pork rinds myself, and the recipe didn’t turn out the same. The pork rinds are too moist so that they won't stick to the chicken as well, and the breading won’t be as crispy.
