Are you on a low carb or keto diet? Do you miss chicken fingers? Look no further! This Low Carb Chicken Fingers recipe is easy to make, quick, delicious, PACKED with protein, and great for meal prep! The best part? You only need a few ingredients to make them!
To start this one take out 2 bowls. You’ll need a bowl for your dry ingredients and a bowl for your wet ingredients. They don’t need to be big, just big enough to fit your chicken into.
In the bowl for your dry ingredients you’ll want to add 1 cup of almond flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, and for a kick 1 1/2 teaspoons of optional chili powder.
Mix those ingredients together good.
In the bowl for your wet ingredients, beat together 2 large whole eggs and 2 large egg whites.
Put both of your bowls off to the side and take out 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breast. Trim the fat off of your chicken and cut them to your preferred chicken finger size.
You could also make chicken nuggets, dinosaurs, or any other shape you/your kids want!
You can also easily change the flavor up by using different seasoning blends, herbs, sauces, and so on. Here are some of my favorites:
Low Carb Chicken Fingers
- Italian seasoning
- Lemon pepper
Coat a baking pan or dish with some non-stick cooking spray and get ready to bread your chicken.
To bread your low carb chicken fingers all you have to do is dunk each piece into your wet ingredient mix then into your dry ingredient mix. Make sure you let the excess wet mix drip off before moving to your dry mix.
Repeat your breading process until all of your chicken fingers are coated. If you don’t use all of your mix, evenly distribute any mix left across the top of your chicken fingers. Alternatively, you could also make more fingers!
Put your low carb chicken fingers in the oven on 375F/190C for 20-25 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
