Best Keto Fried Chicken

This Best Keto Fried Chicken recipe is truly the best- A moist and juicy on the inside yet crispy and crunchy on the outside, no one will know it’s low carb- Keto Fried Chicken is even better than KFC!

It would have to be fried chicken, if I had to choose one food that I always have a second stomach for. I would always choose Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), growing up, whenever it was my turn to pick dinner.


  • 4 lbs skin-on chicken breast pieces, thigh, and Chicken drumstick.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

  1. Dry the chicken by patting and season with pepper and salt. Take a bowl and whisk together the cream and eggs. Take another bowl and, whisk together the onion powder, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, almond flour, and keto bread crumbs.
  2. In the cream/egg, dip each piece of chicken, then in the breadcrumb mixture, until coated.
