Keto-Friendly “FRIED” Chicken

Letting Go of Fried Food

Fried food was definitely one of those things I had to get rid of. To be frank, it was not as hard as I thought it would be to remove fried food from my diet. Instead of frying my food, I opt for other options such as steaming, baking or just cooking in olive oil. It is very important to maintain a low carb daily intake when incorporating a keto plan into your lifestyle. A keto diet is a very popular diet in relation to losing weight because it turns your body into a fat burning machine.

If you have never heard of the keto diet or know very little about it, you owe it to your self to read up on it. You can find so many great keto-friendly recipes all over the web or in books. But today, I am here to share one of my favorite keto-friendly recipes with you all. This recipe is one of my favorite “non” fried, fried chicken recipes. If you decide to try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Ingredients:

  • 5 boneless Chicken Breast (dried)
  • 1 bag Pork Rinds (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Pepper (divided)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 F

1 – In a large bowl, mix your pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon pepper, Italian seasoning and paprika together.

2 – In a separate bowl, mix your eggs and 1 teaspoon pepper together.


***You are going to use both bowls to dip your chicken in.***

3 – Take each piece of chicken breast, one at a time, and dip each one into your egg and pepper bowl, ensuring your entire chicken breast is coated. You then want to dip the coated chicken breast into your pork rind and season bowl. Again, ensuring the entire chicken breast is coated.

4 – Once you have coated all of your chicken breast with both mixtures, transfer all your chicken to a baking sheet and bake the chicken for 30 – 35 minutes or until the internal temperature of your chicken reach 175 F.
