Zero Carb Keto McNuggets

35 minutes


  • 1 pound ground chicken (NOT all white meat unless you want them dry!)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 cup whey protein powder (NOT all white meat unless you want them dry!)
  • 2 quarts oil (NOT all white meat unless you want them dry!)


  • Fill a dutch oven (or a thick, deep pan) with oil and heat on medium high until it reaches 350 degrees (or if you are using an actual Fryer set to 350 and warm up).
  • While oil is heating; mix chicken, egg & seasonings together in a bowl.
  • Scoop about 2 tablespoon of the chicken mixture with your hand and dip into the whey protein powder.
  • Roll around and coat completely.
  • Flatten them down a bit for that iconic nugget shape and place it in the hot oil.
  • Fry until golden brown.
  • Serve with Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, Sugar-Free Ketchup or Mustard!
