Introduction:

Crispy fried chicken without derailing your keto journey? This recipe is your answer! It uses clever low-carb breading and delivers a satisfying crunch alongside tender, juicy chicken. Here's what you need to know:

The Emergence of Keto Fried Chicken: A Tasty Invention

The origins of keto fried chicken remain a mystery, its creation stems from the increasing popularity of the ketogenic diet over the last two decades. Traditional fried chicken heavily depends on flour-based coating, which is incompatible with a keto lifestyle due to its high carbohydrate content.

Culinary experts knowledgeable in the keto diet and recipe development came up with a solution. They substituted the flour with low-carb alternatives like almond flour, or shredded cheese while preserving the familiar crispy consistency.

Broccoli: The Perfect Keto Partner

Broccoli is not just a side dish; it's a nutritional ally.

Cruciferous Champion: Broccoli is part of the veggie family, known for their potential anti-cancer properties. The cred goes to sulforaphane, a plant compound found in broccoli in plenty.

Fiber Fiesta: Broccoli flaunts a decent amount of fiber, crucial for a healthy digestive system.

Micronutrient Marvel: The vitamin and mineral contents of broccoli shouldn't be underestimated. It's a vitamin C hub, supporting your immune system and aiding in iron absorption. Plus, it gives vitamin K, vital for blood clotting and bone health.

Low-Carb Delight: With about 6 grams of net carbs per cup (cooked), broccoli is an ideal keto veggie. It provides vital nutrients without causing blood sugar spikes or disrupting ketosis.

Weight Loss Advantages:

Decreased Carbohydrates:In contrast to traditional fried chicken, the keto variation provides considerably fewer carbohydrates. This aids in maintaining ketosis, the metabolic condition where the body utilizes fat for energy, potentially resulting in weight loss.

Protein Powerhouse: Chicken serves as a lean protein source, keeping you satiated and reducing cravings throughout the day. This can contribute to caloric restriction, another element promoting weight loss.

Fats: Keto fried chicken frequently uses nourishing fats like avocado oil for frying. These fats enhance satiety and supply enduring energy, potentially reducing overall calorie intake.

Keto fried chicken offers a creative and delectable approach to savoring a familiar dish while on a keto diet. While it may play a role in a weight loss strategy, prioritize a balanced keto approach with a variety of whole foods for optimal outcomes.

Frying Flawlessness:

Use avocado oil frying!! It has a high smoke point and adds subtly nut flavor. Maintain a consistent oil temperature of around 350°F for even cooking.

Pan Crowding Concern:

Fry the chicken in batches to avoid oil temperature dropping and resulting in soggy breading.

Leftovers Luxury:

Store leftover fried chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven at 375°F for a few minutes to regain crispness.

Ingredients:

500 grams Chicken (Thighs/ Boneless/Cubes)

200 grams Broccoli (Florets/Blanched)

2-3 tablespoons Parsley (Chopped)

½ teaspoon Black Pepper Powder

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

2-3 teaspoons Soya Sauce

Salt according to taste

50 grams Butter

Instructions:

1. In a large pan boil water and add broccoli florets and cook for 3-5 minutes until crisp and tender.

2. In a separate pan heat butter then add chicken and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

3. Add garlic powder, black pepper powder, soya sauce, and salt fry for 2-3 minutes to incorporate the spices.

4. Add blanched broccoli florets and mix well and fry for 2-3 minutes over medium-low heat.

5. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Enjoy a delicious keto-friendly twist on classic fried chicken!

    Yum, this sounds delicious! I love veggies - I like cauliflower better than broccoli; or a medley of both. I will have to try this and thanks for sharing!!
