Spicy Chicken Sandwich (Keto Friendly)

December 28, 2020



Spicy chicken sandwich with a keto bun, keto chicken tenders, iceberg lettuce, pickles, and Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce. Sandwich next to a bottle of Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce.

There's something irresistible about a five-napkin sandwich—its layers require two hands to grasp; its homemade, imperfect look gives it nostalgic appeal (didn't we all adore chicken tenders as kids?); and it coats your fingers in tangy, spicy, sticky sauce designed for licking or, if you're being polite, smearing any dribbles on napkins. Our spicy chicken sandwich is, surprisingly, keto friendly, thanks to a keto bun, pork rind-coated chicken tenders, and a mix of our Keto Certified Buffalo Sauce and Mayo with Avocado Oil. It's a keto version of a Nashville hot chicken sandwich, but one that can be made easily anytime at home. If you don't have or don't want to use keto-friendly bread, this savory, crunchy, sour, spicy sandwich can be made into a wrap—collards or romaine provide a sturdy enough leaf to contain the heft.

Spicy Chicken Sandwich (Keto Friendly) Recipe

Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • In a food processor, pulse pork rinds until they are the consistency of bread crumbs. You can also place pork rinds into a plastic baggie, seal it, and pound it into small bits using a rolling pin.  
  • Pour crumbs into a tray or a large plate. In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or ghee. When melted, pour butter into a tray or large plate.
  • Coat chicken tenders in butter, and then coat in crumb mixture. Press as much coating onto each breast as possible. Bake chicken for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked (to be safe, insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast. The internal temperature should be 160º when fully cooked.).
  • Dilute mayo with water; stir and set aside.
  • Assemble the keto spicy chicken sandwiches. Split the buns apart. Tear each large piece of iceberg lettuce into 2 smaller pieces, and place 1 piece on top of each bun bottom. Layer 2 chicken tenders on top of each piece of lettuce, drizzle on some buffalo sauce, add 2 more chicken tenders on top, and drizzle with more buffalo sauce. Add 2 pickles then 1 more piece of lettuce. Spoon on mayo, another 2 pickles, then the tops of the buns to close the sandwich.
