Looking through these chicken recipes you may have a few questions. Especially being new to keto some lines are blurred. I am going to help the best I can with your questions on if chicken is keto.

Are chicken wings keto?

Yes they are. Above you may see the pickled brined chicken wings. They are very keto friendly! I even have a barbecue keto wing recipe that’s a great alternative if you’d like to save money on Buffalo Wild Wings.

What chicken is best for keto?

Keto is a high fat diet. As you may know chicken doesn’t contain much fat. Dark meat is fattier than white meat which would make the dark meat a better option for keto.

Dark meat:

  • Chicken thighs
  • Chicken legs

White meat:

  • Chicken breast
  • Chicken wings

Can you eat fried chicken on keto?

Yes and no! Believe it or not chicken can be fried without flour. The flour gives it far more of a crunch but isn’t needed. To add, if frying chicken while on the keto diet using animal fat to fry is best. Animal fat is lard, duck fat or even beef tallow. Here are some options for breading chicken on keto:

  • Nothing
  • Pork rinds
  • Almond flour
  • Protein powder

These will vary in taste of course. I have found pork rinds to give the best crunch!

Are chicken fajitas keto?

Here you have classic steak fajitas but chicken can be subbed as well. The key to fajitas on keto is which bell peppers you choose and using cauliflower rice. Cilantro cauliflower rice is a great option or skip the rice all together. There are some great tortilla options for keto as well.
