Keto Chicken Recipe

You Won't Believe This Yummy Chicken Recipe Is Keto-Friendly — but It Is!

Skip the carbs, and bite into this crispy, keto-approved "fried" chicken, via PaleoHacks.

Chicken doesn't have to be boring when you're keto. In this low carb recipe, chicken cutlets get coated in a spicy almond flour mixture and baked for a Southern-style crunch that's as good as fried!

Tangy dill, spicy cayenne and smoky paprika add a little spice to the almond flour coating, and a little nutritional yeast brings a hint of cheesy flavor.

Start by pounding chicken breasts to ½-inch thickness using a mallet or heavy pan. Dunk the chicken cutlets in the egg mixture and shake off the excess before dredging in the almond flour seasoning. Place the chicken breasts onto a cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet. This method creates an even airflow, so you get a crunchy fried texture on both sides. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve your Keto Southern chicken with a fresh Paleo salad for a hearty, delicious meal.
