Low Carb Fried Chicken


3 Cups Almond Flour
1.5 pounds chicken tenders
2 cups milk
1 egg
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups oil for frying


You will use a wet/dry batter. For the dry portion, mix the almond flour (also called almond meal), salt, pepper, garlic powder together in a 1 gallon Ziploc bag. For the wet batter, mix milk and beaten egg in a large bowl. Cut tenders in half and place them in milk mixture.
Place 2 to 3 pieces of chicken at a time in the almond flour mixture and shake until covered.
Get oil hot (about a med-high or 8) and fry tenders for about 4 minutes on each side. Check tenders to make sure all pink is cooked out before serving.
Time to flip!
This does not give the same flavor as regular flour does.***you've been warned*** It has a different texture and taste. Try to avoid a clumpy batter (you can see that some of mine clumped pretty bad) so you don't get too much almond meal in one big lump. It can have a stale texture if you do. This is a great way to cut your carbs back and not give up fried chicken! We tossed ours in buffalo sauce for an extra kick and it was fantastic that way!
Buffalo sauce recipe:
4tbs melted butter
2 cups Frank's Red Hot - Wings.
Give them a quick dip or use as a dipping sauce! Yum!
