Ingredients needed for keto pickle chip chicken fingers

To make these keto pickle chip chicken fingers, you will need the following ingredients:

– 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts

– 1 cup of dill pickle juice

– 1 cup of almond flour

– 1 teaspoon of paprika

– 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper

– 2 large eggs

– Cooking oil (such as avocado oil) for frying

Step-by-step instructions on how to make keto pickle chip chicken fingers

1  Start by placing the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pouring the pickle juice over them. Make sure the chicken is fully submerged in the juice. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight for maximum flavor.

2  In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to ensure the spices are evenly distributed.

3  In another bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.

4  Remove the chicken from the pickle juice and pat it dry with paper towels. Cut the chicken into strips, about 1 inch wide.

5  Dip each chicken strip into the beaten eggs, making sure it is fully coated.

6 Next, coat the chicken in the almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating to the chicken.

7 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the chicken strips in the pan, making sure not to overcrowd them.

8 Cook the chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy. You may need to cook the chicken in batches, depending on the size of your skillet.

9 Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

10  Serve the keto pickle chip chicken fingers hot, with your favourite low-carb dipping sauce or alongside a fresh salad for a complete meal.

 Tips for a successful cooking process:

– Make sure to fully submerge the chicken in the pickle juice for maximum flavor. The longer you marinate the chicken, the more pronounced the pickle taste will be.

– Use a thermometer to ensure the cooking oil reaches the proper temperature (around 350°F) before frying the chicken. This will help achieve the perfect crispy texture.

– If you prefer a spicier flavor, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or chili powder to the almond flour mixture.

– Don’t be afraid to get creative with your dipping sauces. Try a spicy mayo, a tangy ranch dressing, or even a homemade low carb barbecue sauce.
