Are you not willing to spend several hours in the kitchen to prepare a tasty lunch for your family? Worry no more because today, I’m going to share an easy and simple keto fried chicken recipe.
To make the breading, I use almond flour and parmesan cheese so, you can rest assured that it’s a low carb fried chicken recipe. Once fried, the breading becomes golden brown and crispy and the meat becomes tender and juicy.
Keto Fried Chicken Recipe

- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 2/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

- Add 1 to 2 inches of oil in a container and heat over medium-high flame. Heat the oil to 176°C and adjust the flame during frying to maintain the temperature.
- In a medium bowl, add heavy cream and eggs, beat until well-combined. Take another bowl and mix almond flour, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, cheese, and salt, mix to combine and set aside.
