Oven Baked Keto Southern Fried Chicken

Step 1Combine almond milk, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper and 1 teaspoon of dried oregano in a bowl. (Note: The amount of salt sounds like a lot but remember, this is only in the brine. You won't actually be consuming this much salt. You can use half if you prefer.)

Step 2Submerge chicken pieces and leave to brine for a minimum of 90 minutes and a maximum of overnight.

Step 3Once brining is complete, add remaining ingredients, except cooking oil, into a food processor and pulse until combined into fine crumbs.

Step 4Preheat oven to 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional). Shake crumbed coating out onto a tray. One at a time, remove chicken pieces from brine solution and roll in coating until evenly coated.

Step 5Place coated pieces on a lined baking tray. Once all pieces are coated, bake for approx. 45 minutes depending on the size of your pieces. Mid-way through the baking time, remove from oven and spray with olive oil cooking spray.

Step 6Serve with Keto French Fries!
