Low Carb Crispy Keto Fried Chicken (Similar to KFC Style)

Missing the Kentucky Fried Chicken? If you’re a KFC™ lover, this low carb fried chicken recipe is perfect for you.


Ingredients:


  • 6 chicken thighs boneless
  • 1 large egg
  • 30 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/3 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp powdered mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric optional
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp chili red flakes optional
  • salt to taste

Coating and Frying

  • 50 g unflavored whey protein isolate powder (you can also use almond flour for coating)
  • coconut oil (or your choice of oil for deep frying)

Instructions:



  1. Before chopping the chicken thighs into small chunks, make sure to thoroughly wash and dry them.
  2. Grind the garlic cloves and all the spices with a blender or a mortar. Flavor the chicken with this spice mix. Crack in the egg and pour the milk into the seasoned chicken pieces. Stir well to marinate well.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a covered container and let it chill in the fridge for around an hour. Flip the chunks occasionally.
  4. Pour the protein powder in a plastic container with a lid. Put the chicken in the container before replacing the lid. Shake well to coat the chicken entirely.
  5. Set a deep fryer to 375 degrees and heat the oil in the fryer. Crispy fry the chicken for 5-7 minutes. Wait till the chunks become golden brown and crispy enough to your liking.
  6. Transfer to a platter with any keto-approved dip of your choice.
