Low carb crispy chicken thighs

delicious low carb crispy chicken

Creating KFC for the low carber has been a bit of a challenge. But this comes pretty close!

I generally use ground almonds in place of breadcrumbs for all sorts of things (including the Chicken Goujons) which does a great job.

Delicious low carb crispy chicken almost like KFCSometimes I crave KFC, though, and almonds create quite a dry crumb.

So – hurrah – here is a version which is low carb (1g per chicken thigh) but is higher fat and altogether more crispy and indulgent. 

Coating the chicken thighs with the parmesan spice mixture couldn’t be easier and you can add various spices to suit your taste. A little extra garlic salt or smoked paprika would work well.

My new favourite chicken dinner!
