KFC (Keto Fried Chicken)

KETO FRIED CHICKEN

 

MAJOR KEY 

Use grated, not shredded. If all you have is shredded, put it in a food processor and blend it until smooth.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • oil for frying

Egg Wash:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

"Breading":

  • 2/3 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2/3 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons Tastic Spice

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl, add eggs and heavy cream, beating until well-mixed. In another bowl, stir together all breading ingredients until well-mixed. Set aside.
  • Cut each chicken thigh into 3 evenly sized pieces. If moist, pat them dry with paper towels.
  • Coat each piece first in the breading, then in the egg wash, and then in the breading again, coating all sides. Shake off excess and carefully lower into the hot oil. Fry until deep brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes, and drain on paper towels.
  • Repeat with the other chicken pieces. You may want to work in batches to avoid overcrowding in the pot -- I usually have 6 chicken pieces frying simultaneously in a 8-inch wide pot.
  • Serve immediately while hot and crispy.

OPTIONAL: Chop up some fresh parsley to garnish, sprinkle a finish salt on top or drizzle on a compound butter. Flavor overload! 

*Tastic Spice is available HERE
