Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 22 minutes
Total Time: 37 minutes
For the Chicken:
- 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cut into 12 strips
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons butter
For the Keto Breading:
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon EACH garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and black pepper
For the Keto Waffles:
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
For the Chicken:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray or line it with aluminum foil.
- In a shallow bowl, combine the beaten egg and mayonnaise, mixing until fully combined. Set aside.
- In another shallow bowl, combine the Keto Breading ingredients. Dip each sliced chicken tender into the egg mixture, then dredge it in the breading, ensuring it’s well-coated.
- Place each coated tender on the prepared baking sheet and brush it with the melted butter.
- Bake for 15 minutes, carefully turn the tenders using tongs, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
For the Waffles:
- In a small bowl, combine the eggs, shredded cheese, almond flour, and baking powder, mixing thoroughly.
- Preheat a waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions and lightly grease it with cooking oil if needed.
- Spoon the batter into the waffle maker and cook for 2-3 minutes or until steam is no longer coming from the machine.
- For an air fryer version, preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F, place the chicken tenders (without the melted butter), and lightly spray with cooking oil. Cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
