Mmmmm Keto Oven Baked Chicken – what could be better?
These flavoursome little crispy keto chicken wedges are perfect for kids or fussy eaters, because who doesn’t love some crumbed chicken?
Using a few spices and almond flour, they are baked in the oven for maximum juiciness but could also be fried in oil until super crunchy and crispy! I like to oven bake them because I hate messing up my kitchen with oil.
I have paired these Keto oven baked Chicken Tenders with a parmesan mayonnaise.
As always, if you are using a store bought mayonnaise, it’s important to check the ingredients to make sure they don’t sneak any nasties in that could add to your carb count.
These tasty little Keto Oven Baked Chicken Tenders stay really nice and moist if cooked until JUST done, so keep on eye on them. Look at that moist, flakey chicken.
You could also just have these as is, as they have plenty of flavour going on anyway but everyone loves dipping chicken in sauces, am I right?
Paprika is the hero spice here. I usually use plain paprika, but have also used sweet and smokey paprika for these keto oven baked chicken tenders to add some extra flavour, and they were REALLY yum.
If you wanted an additional side dish, Check out either of these two gems:
Both of these would go a treat with these keto oven baked chicken tenders.
I like them just with a straight green salad mix drizzled in olive oil, and tossed with a few cherry tomatoes and some avocado.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of KFC. Now these are NOT KFC, but they are tender chicken that is finger licking good, so it’s kind of the same thing, right?
I found this handy article about ordering KFC on a low carb diet – it is American based but I do wonder if we could get away with the same. We all know that fast food is NOT good for us, but sometimes, if it’s the different between a huge bowl of potato chips or a low carb KFC option, you have to go with the lesser of two evils, right?
