Hey everyone my name is Ashley and today
we are gonna be making keto chicken
nuggets. We’re gonna go ahead and fry
them and also make them and then go
ahead and compare to see which one’s the
best. Let’s get started.
If you plan on frying your chicken nuggets you can go
ahead and use a fryer if you have one
available or you can go ahead and use a
deep pan. Make sure that it is a deep pan
so that we don’t cause any fires. The
amount of oil that you use into your
fryer just depends on what type of
machine you are using so go ahead and
read instructions. For my machine I did
use about two cups of oil. If you plan on
baking you’re gonna go ahead and
pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. In
order for the chicken to be completely
breaded we are gonna go ahead and
prepare an egg wash. The egg wash
consists of one tablespoon of heavy
whipping cream and one large egg. For the
breading we are gonna be using 1 cup of
almond flour. If you don’t have almond
flour you can definitely use coconut
flour or you can also use pork rinds I
am gonna be adding seasoning to my
almond flour the type of seasoning that
you add depends on what you want to put
the seasonings that I am gonna be using
a salt and pepper garlic powder and
onion powder paprika and oregano and now
we’re gonna go ahead and mix our almond
flour with our seasoning for today’s
chicken nuggets I am using an 8 ounce
chicken breast I went ahead and cut my
chicken nuggets into small squares but
you can go ahead and make chicken strips
or a larger chicken nuggets however you
like it’s fine I’m going to go ahead and
add some seasoning to my chicken I’m
gonna be using salt and pepper I’m gonna
go ahead and start preparing my chicken
go ahead and add my chicken into the egg
wash as soon as I’m done with the egg
wash I’m gonna go ahead and put it into
the almond flour
once the chicken is in the almond flour
I’m going to go ahead and close the
Tupperware I’m going to shake the
Tupperware so that all the breading gets
on to the chicken and that’s how your
chicken nugget is going to look like
after you’re done with this you can go
ahead and throw your chicken I get into
the fryer or you can go ahead and place
it on a baking sheet for the baking for
baking we’re gonna go ahead and use our
baking sheet and make a layer of olive
oil
for the other half of the chicken
nuggets I’m going to go ahead and throw
them into the fryer for about six to
eight minutes
so I finished baking and frying my
chicken nuggets and this is the results
on the left side we have the baked
chicken nuggets on the right side we
have our fried chicken nuggets so we’re
gonna go ahead and try our baked chicken
nugget
so the baked chicken nugget tastes like
the breading it tastes like the almond
flour so that’s kind of a a bad thing
about this chicken nugget but it tastes
okay so what I would recommend doing is
throwing it back in the fryer and I have
already prepared that and so that’s how
it looks like it looks like the breading
has been fried way better so next is our
fried chicken nugget we didn’t bake this
chicken nugget we just threw it in the
fryer so let’s go ahead and see how it
tastes
so with the fried chicken I get it
tastes a little bit drying I might have
left it for a little bit too long I left
it for eight minutes but I do like the
breading it’s really really crispy and
that’s what I like about a chicken is
overall I think that I would probably
bake my chicken egg at first only to
retain all that juiciness of the of the
chicken and then I would go ahead and
throw it in the fryer for about three
minutes if you don’t have a fryer you
can definitely use a deep pan so that’s
it guys if you have any questions
