Full Recipe:


  • 2 lbs chicken pieces (drumsticks, thighs, wings, etc.)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
For the Coating:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
For Frying:
  • Cooking oil (enough for deep frying)


  1. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl, season with salt and black pepper, and pour buttermilk over them. Ensure the chicken is fully coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight for optimal flavor.
  2. Prepare the Coating:
    • In a shallow dish, combine almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the coating mixture.
  3. Coat the Chicken:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and place a wire rack on a baking sheet.
    • Remove each piece of chicken from the buttermilk, letting any excess liquid drip off.
    • Roll the chicken in the coating mixture, ensuring an even and thorough coating.
  4. Heat Cooking Oil:
    • In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat cooking oil to 350°F (180°C).
  5. Fry the Chicken:
    • Carefully place the coated chicken pieces into the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown and cooked through. This typically takes about 12-15 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken pieces.
  6. Drain and Finish in the Oven:
    • Once the chicken is fried, transfer it to the wire rack on the baking sheet to drain any excess oil. Finish cooking the chicken in the preheated oven for an additional 10-15 minutes to ensure it’s fully cooked and crispy.
  7. Serve:
    • Serve the Keto KFC Style Secret Chicken hot, with your favorite keto-friendly dipping sauces if desired.
