Crispy Keto Fried Chicken - Best Low Carb Recipe | KetoVale

Crispy Keto Fried Chicken KFC™ Style

Missing the Kentucky Fried Chicken? If you’re a KFC™ lover, this low carb fried chicken recipe is exactly perfect for you. We’ve tried a few Keto Fried Chicken recipes before but this one is the best so far. It’s soft and moist inside, crunchy outside, a little spicy and very tasty.

Colonel Sanders used to say “It’s freshly prepared in every restaurant, seasoned with a secret blend of 11 herbs and spices and then hand breaded all day long by a certified cook.”

Some people say that the most important thing is to use the pressure fryer but we think it’s the unique combination of herbs and spices. The secret here is to marinate the meat and keep it cool in the fridge for an hour before you coat and fry it. This is to get all the beautiful flavours from the spices deepen inside the chicken meat.

This recipe is actually not that complicated. Once you marinate the chicken with all the spices and coat with the crumbs, just cook it in a deep fryer. All you have to do is sit back and relax and let the deep fryer do all the work.

For this Keto version, we use unflavoured protein powder for the flour coating and the result is extraordinary. If you are wondering which brands to use, feel free to read our protein powder reviews.

If you don’t want to use protein powder, you can try coconut or almond flour, or even pork rind breadcrumbs. You can combine different spices according to your taste.

Here’s the entire process in one photo.
