So one if the things I love is good old fashion Fried Chicken and when I started my keto journey I figured it was out. Well a friend shared with me a recipe and I thought this is going to suck but I made a batch and well, I can have Fried Chicken and it’s GOOD.
Here is the recipe, keep in mind you can change it up. I like mine spicy so I add a little cayenne pepper, try new things and don’t be intimidated.
Ingredients: serves 4
Spice & Herb Mix:
2 teaspoons Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon dried Basil
1/3 teaspoon dried Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Celery Salt
1/2 teaspoon Mustard Powder
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon White Pepper
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
1 1/2 cup Unflavored Protein powder, (I use Isopure Protein Powder)
2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
4 large chicken breasts or 8 thighs, cut into pieces (If using Chicken Breast I half the to cook better)
2 cups coconut oil (for frying)
Combine all the spices into a bowl, mix well and divide into two large bowls. In one bowl, add the almond milk and egg, mix well until combined. Add the chicken and leave to marinate over night or for a few hours.
To the other spice mix add the protein powder and mix well. Take the chicken out and dip into the protein spice mix until the chicken is coated well. For a better crunch you can double dip or repeat the last step.
For deep frying bring the coconut oil up to a medium heat and fry the chicken for 8-9 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. For Air frying place in the air fryer and drizzle some coconut oil over the top, air fry for 8-9 minutes at 180/350 degrees turning once. Let is cook down a little before that first bit & enjoy… Try it and leave comment on what you think about it.
