Keto Chik-Fil-A Tenders & Copycat Sauce

Let’s get one thing straight. We all know that Chick-Fil-A is not low-carb. Maybe the grilled chicken on a salad, but the chick fil A sauce is a bust. When I’m craving Chick-Fil-A (and that happens a lot) I just keep this recipe handy and make my own low-carb copycat recipe. You can’t tell a difference.

How To Make Keto Chick-Fil-A Tenders

I made these  Keto Chik-Fil-A Tenders in the air fryer. They come out crispy and perfect! You’ll never guess all of the ingredients I used though.

Ingredients

Here’s what I used in my Keto Chik-Fil-A chicken tenders. It might be surprising, but if you put these all together it really does make the best tenders in the world.

Chicken breast
Pickle Juice
Heavy Whipping Cream
Pork Rinds
Eggs

Directions

First, whisk ¼ cup of the heavy whipping cream and all of the pickle juice together.

Then, coat the chicken tenders in this wet mixture.

Put the container covered into the fridge to marinate for at least an hour, turning the tenders halfway through.

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.

Place the egg and the other ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream into a shallow bowl, and whisk to combine well.

Remove the chicken tenders from the pickle juice mixture, and dip them into the egg and heavy whipping cream mixture.

Add the pork rind crumbs as well as salt and pepper to taste in an even layer on a plate.

Remove the chicken tenders from the pickle juice mixture, and dip them into the egg and heavy whipping cream mixture.

Coat the outside of the tenders in the pork rind crumbs.

Place the pork-rind-crusted chicken strips into the air fryer and bake them for 15-20 minutes until crispy. That’s it! These taste amazing with the copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce.

How To Make Keto Chick-Fil-A Sauce

Since there’s no cooking required, this is a super simple recipe. I like to make a big batch and keep it in my refrigerator. I use it on my keto burgers too.

Here’s what’s in my Keto copycat sauce.

Mayonaise
Mustard
Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce
Sugar-Free Honey
Lemon Juice

What is Sugar-Free Honey?

It isn’t real honey. I like using a sugar-free honey substitute because it has the same texture and taste of honey without the carbs. It’s made with honey flavoring and xylitol, which is sugar alcohol without the calories.

Place all of the ingredients for the sauce into a small bowl, and whisk to combine well.

Put the sauce into the fridge in a covered container to chill for one hour before serving.
