Perfectly Baked Keto Chicken Tenders
We’ve really got this almond flour breading recipe down now. If you want a video tutorial on how to properly execute the breading recipe we have a video of Megha making popcorn chicken. The same techniques and principles apply to these keto chicken tenders. We’re using the same egg wash and breading mixture. As always, play around with different seasoning combinations to make these tenders align with your tastes. Let’s get down to making the keto chicken tenders!
Baked, Not Fried…Goldfish
That’s just the carb monster in my brain talking. He somehow melded with the part of my brain that remembers annoying commercial jingles and wrote that heading. Anyways, we’re going to be baking these rather than frying. Frying is a viable option, but we’ve found that the almond flour will get too browned and boarder on being burned prior to the inside being cooked through. Also, this breading bakes up to be the perfect consistency of a diner chicken tender. No need to add on a bunch of extra calories by frying them. If you’re that eager to stack on some extra calories, load these keto chicken tenders up with blue cheese dressing!
Let’s Talk Sauce
We’ve played around with a buffalo sauce recipe a few different times. We actually made a really good one that we tossed chicken wings in when we catered a birthday party a few months back. If you are truly about that homemade sauce life, I would definitely encourage you to work out a buffalo sauce recipe of your own. For these keto chicken tenders we’re going with a store bought sauce! We’ve tried a few different brands and varieties of store bought buffalo sauces and they are all good. Better yet, just about all of them are low carb and no added sugar. Check the nutrition label to be certain, but every sauce at our local grocery store is 0 added sugar. We do have a phenomenal homemade asian wing sauce recipe that would also go great on these keto chicken tenders, but when you’re in the mood for chicken doused in buffalo sauce nothing else will compare!
Sauce to Order
If you’re not saucing your tenders to order your simply not eating these keto chicken tenders at their fullest of potential. We worked so hard to devise this crispy breading recipe, don’t go wasting the crispiness by saucing the tenders an hour ahead of time. I find the best way to get a complete and total sauce coating is to place a few tenders in a Tupperware container. Pour in a few spoonfuls of sauce. Put the lid on and shake until completely covered.
Not into Buffalo Sauce?
Well we’ve got you covered there too. We’ve created a truly sensational low carb barbecue sauce. I don’t throw this term around lightly, but this is one of my favorite recipes we’ve published to date. It’s better than the sugared up stuff you ate growing up!
