Yummy Low(er)-Carb Dinner

I love chicken chunks. Love them a lot. And my hubby really loves chicken nuggets and fried chicken too. So earlier this week I experimented. I used my Bob's Red Mill baking mix as a breading for chicken and it was delicious!!

2c Bob's Red Mill Low-Carb Baking Mix
1/2c panko bread crumbs
2chicken breasts, cut into 1" chunks
2t onion powder
2t garlic powder
1t chipotle powder
1t curry powder
1/4c cream
1/2c water
  1. whisk together egg, water and cream in one bowl

  2. in another bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients for dredging

  3. heat about 3 inches of oil to 350 degrees in dutch oven (I used a candy thermometer to keep temp constant)

  4. soak some chicken in the egg mixture, then dredge in breading mixture and fry a few at a time. Transfer to newspaper to drain excess oil off.

  5. Chicken pieces are done when they are nice and golden brown on the outside, just 3-4 minutes is all it takes.

These were very yummy! I will definitely be making them again. I served them with butternut squash french fries baked in the oven. Delicious! The chunks run about 10 carbs/serving (approximately) and I don't think Hubby even realized they were low-carb. The baking mix gave the breading a really great texture because not only does it contain different flours, but also oat bran and flax seed meal. (BRM mix contains: Vital Wheat Gluten, Whole Grain Oat Flour, Oat Bran, Oat Fiber, Flaxseed Meal, Whole Grain Rye Flour, Wheat Bran, Whole Grain Soy Flour, Sea Salt, Evaporated Cane Juice)

  1. Don't you LOVE chipotle powder? I use it a lot in my cooking too and think it's fantastic.
