Fast Food Alternatives!
We all know that feeling – when you’re driving home from work or out on the weekend and pull up to the drive-thru window with your exact order already in mind. If you’ve been that person, he or she may still linger inside of you, like it does for us then you want some good alternatives!
If you haven’t check out our first cookbook, Keto Made Easy, you may want to solely for the take-out section. If you have it and want more then you should give the following a try:
- Who doesn’t love a good pizza crust? Our’s is zero carbs!
- Matt’s favorite fast food item is the McGriddle from McDonalds!
- Cashew Chicken. Chinese take-out can be iffy so you’re better off making it at home!
Pork rinds are the perfect breading when you want a delicious, crispy coating on meat and veggies. The best part about using pork rinds are that it’s easy to turn them into crumbs via a food processor or crushing them in a zip top bag, and they are zero carbs! To elevate the pork rind coating you can add grated parmesan or almond flour (like we did in this recipe) that will create a thicker, crispier coating.
Fry Or Bake
If you want to go the traditional route with your chicken fries, frying is the way to go! However, if you want a less messier, less calorie dense option you can bakes these chicken fries.
If you pop them in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes (depending on how thick the fries are) you’ll still have crispy, chicken fries.
Tip: If you decide to bake these chicken fries place them on a cooling rack on the baking sheet so the heat can circulate all around the fries and you get even crispiness.

Easy Homemade Chicken Fries
What You Need:
- Large Skillet
- Trim ends off chicken tenders to square them up. Cut each tender in half, then in half again, creating 4 thin “fries”.
- Add crushed pork rinds, paprika, onion and garlic powders, salt, pepper and almond flour to a large shallow bowl or plate.
- In a bowl add the egg and cream and beat until fully incorporated.
- Place chicken strips one at a time first in the egg mixture and then directly into the flour pork rind mixture. Coat each chicken strip completely, continuing until all are breaded.
- Heat ¼-inch oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken fries and cook until golden on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side, another 2 minutes.
- Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with the remaining chicken, adding
more oil if needed.
- Serve immediately. Best stored in an air tight container in the fridge up to 5 days.
