Keto Chicken Sandwich – Important Tips

Bread – You can buy any store bought low carb keto bread from the grocery store. Or make your own quick homemade bread as directed below:

  • In a mug, add melted butter, beaten egg, baking powder, and salt. Whisk well.
  • Place the mug in the Microwave for about 80-90 seconds until firm and cooked through.
  • Use it immediately or store it in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • When ready to eat, add butter in a pan and toast the bread slices.

Spice – For a little kick, add just a tablespoon of cayenne pepper, for mild, add 2.5-3 tbsp and for a spicy kick, add 3-5 tablespoons of cayenne pepper powder.

Sweetener – Use any brown sugar substitute like Swerve Brown Sugar to get caramel-like flavour or use any other regular erythritol or another sweetener.

Chicken – Use boneless skinless chicken thighs to get that juicy flavor as the chicken breasts will dry up pretty quickly

Pork Rind Crumbs – For crunchy texture, use using pork rind crumbs for the breading. You can omit but it will not be that crisp.
