From my Instagram today: Keto Fried Chicken


Keto Fried Chicken

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 c King Arthur Keto Flour
1/2 c Isopure Unflavored Whey Protein Powder
1 t salt
1/2 t fresh black pepper
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 T paprika
2 eggs
1/4 c heavy cream
1/4 c water
Oil for frying

Preheat the oil in your frying vessel of choice (I use a cast iron skillet).  Rinse and pat dry the chicken.  Sprinkle with some of the dry keto flour and whey protein powder.  In a bowl, mix the egg, cream and water.  Place the chicken in the bowl of the wet mixture.  In a Ziploc baggy, place the keto flour, whey protein powder, and seasonings.  Lift the chicken, place into the Ziploc.  Do 2-3 at a time.  Zip closed and shake to cover the chicken.  When the oil is hot enough to sizzle with a drop of water (about 350 ish is good) place the chicken in the hot oil.  Fry 2-3 at a time, allowing space between them. 

Fry slowly until golden brown, flipping once half way, and then continuing to flip if needed to get a nice dark, even color. It should take around 12-15 minutes.  Drain on a rack over paper towels.
