Oven Baked Crispy Keto Chicken Tenders With Parmesan Mayonnaise

Oven Baked Crispy Keto Chicken Tenders With Parmesan Mayonnaise

Mmmmm Crispy Keto 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 have paired these Crispy Keto 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. You could also just have these as is, as they have plenty of flavour going on anyway.


If you wanted an additional side dish, my Keto Capsicum, Feta and Chorizo salad or Keto Warm Broccoli Salad would go a treat with these keto crispy chicken tenders.
