Keto Chick-fil-A Style Fried Chicken Tenders

This recipe was inspired by Megan at The Mermaid with Muscles and included in our Top 10 Keto Snack Recipes of 2018 roundup.

You’re craving the savory crunch of fried chicken.

But you don’t want to fall off your diet gorging at Chick-fil-A (or maybe it’s Sunday…).

What do you do?

Recreate the classic with this healthy recipe!

These Keto Chick-fil-A Style Fried Chicken Tenders swap breading for protein powder (really!) and peanut oil for avocado oil – so you get all of the flavor and none of the guilt.

And the secret to recreating Chick-fil-A’s magic? Marinating for hours in a jar of pickle juice.

You won’t believe how close to the real thing these are.

Just be sure to eat with heaping portions of your favorite dipping sauce. We loved these in good ol’ ranch, but you can try a keto honey mustard or your own copycat Chick-fil-A sauce.
