Low Carb Breaded Chicken Recipe

So many of us are focused on what we’re eating right now and for me personally one of my challenges has been to lower carbs in my diet. I LOVE carbs but my body doesn’t so I’ve been trying out new low carb recipes to recreate some of our favourites. Today I’m sharing one that’s a hit with our family, this Low Carb Breaded Chicken Recipe which uses almond flour instead of the usual.

I hope you all enjoy this…the Psyllium husk powder is optional totally optional, and it can be found at any health food store. In case you didn’t know, it’s a fiber that’s ground to a fine powder and helps bulk up certain things. So, the chicken is breaded with Almond flour and will work perfectly fine without the psyllium powder… I just find the powder sticks to the chicken skin a bit more and makes the breading a bit more “thick” like traditional breaded chicken.
