Tender and moist fried chicken tenders keto recipe is my favorite gluten free and keto recipe for nutritious and tasty keto family friendly meal or keto snack.

This is my children’s favorite food – chicken fingers fried in delicious keto batter with coconut flour and sesame flour. Meat is so tender, moist and tasty. Usually I make huge quantity because my children eat this for lunch, dinner and breakfast next day.

This batter for frying won’t be crispy, it’s very tender and delicious. It’s perfect for children, also as a baby food for for baby led weaning.

Fried veggies in keto batter

My children’s nanny is a real master of this keto batter so she is frying veggies in this batter, like zucchini, celery root and similar. Veggies fried like that are amazing plus this easy keto cheese sauce from the microwave. So good and perfect keto recipe for a working parents!

I like to eat these keto chicken strips with very simple keto dip that I make with mayonnaise and sour cream. Basically, I just mix 2 TBS of sour cream and 1 TBS of mayonnaise, and season it with a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper.

It’s also great if you serve it with leafy green salad, cauliflower mash or broccoli mash.
