KFC: Keto ‘Fried’ Chicken

Juicy chicken baked to the perfect crunch! You can have a KFC-style crispy chicken meal while following a keto diet.

To make keto bread crumbs, dry a few slices of our seeded bread in a low oven. Once dry, use a Nutri-Bbullet or food process to smash down the bread into perfect low-carb crumbs – perfect for coating chicken, fish, cheese, vegetables or anything you fancy!

While our crunchy chicken is baked, if you have a deep fat fryer, this recipe would still work perfectly in there.

Time Required
45 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to Gas 9, 240°C, fan 220°C.
  2. For the vegan version - if using extra firm tofu, first pat dry then marinade in vegan bouillon. Overnight is a best, but a few hours or whatever time you have will add favour.
  3. Break the eggs into a bowl and mix whites and yolks. After dipping in the almond flour, add the chicken (or tofu) and garlic to the eggs.
  4. Mix the breadcrumbs in a zip lock back.
  5. Add the egg covered chicken drumsticks or tofu one at a time and shake until covered.
  6. Repeat for extra crunch.
  7. Grease a baking tray and place drumsticks evenly.
  8. Cook for 30-35 mins at the top of the oven – turning halfway through. Check that the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
  9. Season well and serve with lime wedges, slaw, mayonnaise, keto ketchup, salad or celeriac chips.
