Last night I decided to make Fried Chicken, using the same Low Carb Breading I used to make Fried Squash last week. I was in the mood for salty, crispy fried food – which can be elusive on a low carb diet. 😛
I had boneless chicken strips in the refrigerator, and had been trying to think up a new low carb chicken recipe when I remembered the breading!
I also had a fresh yellow squash and frozen broccoli to work with, so I decided to throw it all together and make a meal.
And what a meal it was! Delicious!! 😀
Low Carb Chicken Recipe: Fried Chicken
Ingredients: Chicken, Heavy Whipping Cream, and Low Carb Breading Mix, Favorite Seasonings
(Note: You can get two mixes for the price of one using the coupon code LCTRAVEL at checkout)
All you have to do is pour a little heavy whipping cream in one bowl, and the low carb breading mix in another. Add your favorite seasoning to the breading mix. Coat your chicken with the cream, then press it into the breading to coat.
Heat oil in a large skillet to about medium (maybe a little under). Test it by putting a pinch of breading into the hot oil to make sure it sizzles. When hot, place breaded chicken into the oil and cook until brown on both sides – and cooked through.
When done, remove from skillet and place on a plate covered with a paper towel (to soak up excess oil). Super easy! With the small chicken tender strips it took less than 15 minutes total from start to done.
For the side dish, I washed and cut a fresh yellow squash, and put it in a pot with about half a bag of frozen broccoli.
Cover it with cold water, bring it to a boil, and let it boil for about 7 minutes. Next, drain the water off (I used a strainer in the sink), and put the vegetables in a small baking dish.
Add salt & butter to taste and cover with shredded cheese. Bake at 400 until bubbly!
This made for an absolutely delicious (super fast) low carb meal! 😀
The low carb breading is great for other low carb chicken recipes as well, including baked breaded chicken over your favorite vegetables – drizzled with Alfredo sauce!
