Ingredients for Your Ketogenic Southern Fried Chicken Thighs

  • 2 pounds of Chicken Thigh
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Celery Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Dried Oregano
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoons of Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup of Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan, finely grated

Instructions For Making Your Ketogenic Southern Fried Chicken Thighs:

  1. Cut each chicken thigh fillet into 3 evenly sized pieces and place into a mixing bowl.
  2. Coat chicken in garlic powder, celery salt, chili powder and dried oregano, mixing well to ensure all the chicken is covered. Leave to marinate for half an hour.
  3. Meanwhile whisk the eggs and cream together.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and powdered parmesan, then pour onto a tray ready to bread the chicken.
  5. Turn the deep fryer to 180 degrees Celsius and allow to heat up.
  6. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mix and the roll in the almond meal and parmesan mix. Set aside on a tray until ready to fry.
  7. Place chicken in the fryer basket, remembering not to over-crowd the fryer. I have a small fryer and put 6-8 pieces of chicken in my basket, this will prevent the peanut oil temperature from dropping too quickly and allow the chicken pieces to be totally surrounded by the oil and not stick to each other.
  8. Fry the chicken for 5-7 minutes until it is a dark golden brown. If you are unsure whether the chicken is cooked remove one of the pieces and cut through the thickest area to check.
  9. Once cooked through the chicken is ready to eat. I serve my fried chicken with Buttery Cauliflower Mash.
