  • 1/2 tablespoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 45 milliliters unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (protein isolate)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili oil


  • Mince the garlic cloves.
  • Cut the chicken thighs into bite size pieces.
  • I prefer to eat the skin, but if you don't like the skin feel free to take it off ????
  • In a bowl combine the chicken with all the spices and the almond milk.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Add the two eggs to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat the lard (or any frying oil you'll be using) between 140-150C/285-300F.
  • When the oil is hot, dip each chicken piece, one by one, into the protein powder making sure all the sides are perfectly coated.
  • Once coated, add the chicken pieces to your hot oil and fry 2-3 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • The inner temperature of each chicken bites should register at 65C/150F+ when the chicken is cooked through.
  • Add the fried chicken on a wire rack or some paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  • Eat as is or with some spicy ranch dressing!
  • Spicy Ranch Dressing Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl together and serve with the fried chicken ????
  • Recipe Notes The chicken can be reheated the next day, but taste better and is crispier the same day ???? The ranch dressing can also be made as a salad dressing.
  • This recipe does not work in an air fryer.
  • The whey protein isolate needs to activate inside the hot oil in order to crisp up and get flaky.
