Crispy Keto Fried Chicken
My Crispy Keto Fried Chicken is so delicious that even the non-Keto folks will be begging for more!
- 1.5 lb chicken tenderloins
- ½ cup pork rind crumbs
- ¼ cup whey protein isolate, plain
- 2 tbsp hot sauce
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp parsley
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- salt and pepper to taste
Breading the chicken
Preheat oven to 420º F.
In a bowl, combine pork rind crumbs, whey protein, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, chili powder, paprika, salt and black pepper. This is our breading mixture.
Using a fork, shake off any excess marinade and then drop the chicken directly into the breading mixture. Move it around to coat. I do this one-by-one to ensure each one is covered entirely.
Position the chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the chicken until internal temperature hits 165º F and the outside is golden brown. For tenderloins, this is around 15 minutes. For other cuts, your time will likely be longer.
