    Fried chicken tenders are a classic for summer, but that crispy breading isn’t so Keto-friendly. Not to worry! We’ve got the perfect zero carb alternative that will make you think you’ve gone to Keto fast food heaven! These tenders are an easy family-friendly option that is sure to delight Keto’ers and non-Keto’ers alike!


    1. Pour avocado oil into a medium sized saucepan and place on stove over high heat
    2. While oil is heating up, crack eggs into a medium sized bowl and whip together
    3. Combine whey protein powder, salt, and pepper in a medium sized bowl
    4. Use a thermometer to measure oil temperature: ideal temperature is 350℉ - 365℉ (If you don’t have a thermometer, let oil heat for at least 5 minutes on high)
    5. Once oil is ready, dip a raw chicken tender into egg and submerge fully. Then dip chicken tender into protein powder mixture until well coated
    6. Gently add coated chicken into hot oil
    7. Repeat with remaining tenders (you may need to cook chicken in two batches to avoid overcrowding your saucepan)
    8. Flip chicken tenders over once golden brown on the first side, about 2-3 minutes (adjust heat if chicken is browning too quickly or not quickly enough)
    9. Continue frying chicken until both slides are golden brown and internal temperature is 165℉
    10. Remove chicken tenders from oil with tongs and place on a paper towel lined plate
    11. Sprinkle with additional salt, and any other seasoning you desire
