Rub a little mustard on the chicken. No need for egg wash, the mustard will hold the breading and you will not taste any mustard since it cooks off while frying. I prefer pork rinds. An air fryer might work best for this. Keto breading tends to burn and you need the chicken 165 degrees.
If you use a semi stiff peak wash you will get the ultimate keto batter
My southern mom in law & her mother taught me to put chicken in a salty ice water bath for an hour or so before patting dry & cooking 😉
Indigo nilli has the best mix. Hands down
The egg wash is not to get the chicken wet to make the seasoning stick, its to coat the chicken in protein so the breading binds together and to the chicken. The protein powder is doing the same thing here.
How timely, but a day late. I grabbed a 2-piece extra crunchy KFC meal last night. I subbed coleslaw for the potatoes and water as my beverage, but I did eat the biscuit and honey for dessert. I am OMAD. I was craving KFC and indulged. 🤷♀️
I look forward to trying your low-carb version, although I might try baking in the oven but will drizzle the coated chicken with melted butter, both sides. I learned this oven-fried method for razor clams from a local radio host (RIP) and have never looked back!
Clams are much thinner so his recipe used the broiler and both sides crisp up fast. I will see how the chicken does in bake mode but might broil first (or last) to see how it crisps up. The drizzeled butter us the key! 😋
EDIT: 40 years ago, my cousin shared a recipe for oven-baked chicken using Bisquick. It was great and I made it a lot when raising my family!
I haven't cooked with Bisquick since keto and forgot about this so I googled bisquick oven-fried chicken and found it. I will make the posted keto recipe but will follow the instructions for oven-baked. And it only uses 1 T. butter! When you bake it in the butter first, skin side down, it renders enough fat from the skin so when you turn it over, there's fat to crisp up the bottom side.
I always use ground pork rinds. I generally use my air fryer but have fried them. Really love doing thin cut pork chops this way.
Is the alcohol very necessary? What kind of protein powder?
Sounds yummy but I hate too salty of food pork Rinds are so salty to begin with just seems like a lot of salt would it work with less!?
I also like to use Walnut or Pecan Flour when I am Air Frying my Crispy Chicken or Pork.
Quick question:. If carnivore is healthy why do we need electrolytes?
Can you do this in an air fryer ?
Indigo Nili adds egg white protein powder and gelatine to pork panko crumbs and it sticks to anything you are breading.
I mix pork panko and grated Parm and spices to deep fry chicken tenders. I've found it works the best when I make it ahead. I coat it in egg wash and then the pork rinds/Parm mix and let it sit in the fridge a couple hours on a sheet tray. There are never leftovers!
I use pork grinds and protein powder. Dredge chicken in protein powder, then dip in egg wash, then a blend of pork rinds and protein powder and pan fry
OMG!!! You're Hilarious!!! "Mixing the spices is gonna give me Tennis Elbow" 🤣🤣 These recipes all look amazing! Thank you for trying all the different ways to make low carb fried chicken! I'm so excited to try the protein powder recipe – because everytime I have tried to fry chicken my breading falls off. Thank you again. Love and hugs!!! 💕💕
