Let’s get started
Easy Keto Chicken and Waffles
For the Waffles: – 2 cups almond flour, blanched – 1 tsp baking powder – 1/2 tsp salt – 1 tablespoon erythritol – 1 teaspoon vanilla – 1 cup heavy whipping cream (or buttermilk) – 4 tbsp butter melted – 4 large eggs
For the chicken: – 2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into tender pieces – 3/4 cup almond flour, blanched – 1 teaspoon onion powder – 1 large egg – 1 tbsp paprika – 1 tsp garlic powder – Salt and pepper to taste For Topping: – Sugar Free Syrup
For the waffles: Preheat the waffle maker on high heat. Whisk together baking powder, flour, and salt in a bowl and whisk eggs, cream, and other ingredients on the other bowl.
Add the wet mixture into the dry and stir until combined. Lightly grease the waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup of batter and cook for 5 minutes or until steam coming from waffle maker stops or slows down a bit.
Open the waffle maker and remove waffle and repeat the same process for the remaining batter, regreasing the iron in between. Done!
For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 425 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a shallow bowl, combine the almond flour with the seasonings and beat the eggs into another bowl.
Toss the chicken pieces into the almond seasoning mixture, then dip it into the egg mixture and single layer them on the baking sheet. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until chicken is crispy and cooked through, flipping once halfway through. Serve the waffles topped with chicken and drizzle with your favorite sugar-free syrup.
You can pretty much use any chicken piece, from boneless to bone-in, but here I am using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into tenders.
Yes, you heard it right! You can make waffles without waffle maker, we will be using a grill pan, here’s how to make them: – 1 batch of waffle batter – Butter
Serve the waffles with the fried chicken tenders and top with your favorite sugar-free maple syrup or some mustard. You can also make this a keto chicken and bacon waffles if you add slices of bacon and sandwich with another waffle.
