Oh, okay, so I could probably use my mixer with a dough hook. Thanks!

I used some low carb bread crumbs from some buns (see above) that I made a couple of weeks ago. The buns didn't rise well -- dead yeast -- so they just dried out on the counter from neglect. I ran them through the blender and let them sit on the counter a couple of days, and lo and behold they were perfect! Just pure laziness...

This is beautiful and I was thinking it would be my Easter cake until I saw it was a mix. Boo hoo. Looks yummy though.

I'm working on an actual cake mix, but first I'm nailing down quick breads. I expect this to be a major process, but I am really excited about it.

One of the things I always want in my fried chicken is a crunchy outer coating like KFC always had, and the baking powder certainly helps provide that.

Ingredients

2 pounds chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup coconut flour (omit on Induction)
3 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup water

Instructions

In tupperware container, add Parmesan cheese, coconut flour, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and baking powder. Place lid on container and shake to combine.
In a bowl, crack one egg, and add heavy cream and water. Beat together.
Remove excess fat off chicken, and slice chicken breast in to 1-inch strips on the bias against the grain of the chicken. Season the chicken with favorite seasoning.
In a large container, add 3/4 cup of cheese-flour mixture. Add a handful of chicken. Shake to coat the chicken. Dunk chicken strips in the egg-cream bath, and shake off excess liquid. Return chicken to large container for second breading. Place chicken on a plate, and repeat for remaining chicken.
Start oil heating to 375F, preheat oven to 200F, and place chicken in freezer for 5-10 minutes while oil heats.
When oil is hot enough, remove chicken from freezer and place roughly a third of the pieces in the oil. Cook chicken for 5 minutes until done. Place chicken on cooking sheet in preheated oven, and repeat cooking process with remaining chicken.

You need to add this to the next cookbook. Your recipes are so good, thanks for sharing! I assume the oven is just for keeping them warm (just asking because I have a warming drawer under my oven).

Gracious, Kent, those are beautiful! I was wondering what to do for dinner tonight, and that looks like it!

I am going to fry half of them and try drizzling the other half with some melted butter or oil and baking them, just to see if that works. Then I'll compare the results. Trying to cut down on the calories a bit these days...

Yes the oven is only to keep them warm while you finish the others. The resting time also helps crunchiness too as any clinging oil will drop off. (My pan had holes in its bottom.)

Yeah, chicken nuggets. The baking powder is a great tip. I'm making these next time.

Great pizza made with Kevinpa's final flour blend. This is a big slice for 4.5 carbs (counting the veggies) and 174 calories!

I just made a little foil pan about the length and width of 3 hot dog buns and put the foil pan in an 8x8 baking pan. Worked out great and made wonderful soft hot dog buns!

I have all the ingredients sitting out on my counter, on my to-do list to put together Kevin's mix. THEN on to baking, can't wait. These pictures look wonderful. And I LIKE that your recipe does not make a lot at a time. Thanks! I'll let you know how mine turn out once I get it all together.

yes, I was trying to get the number of buns down to just a few. My breadmaker just won't handle less than 2/3 c water and a cup and a half of flour, though. I usually make 4 big hamburger buns with that amount, but the hot dog buns needed to be a little bigger, I thought. Glad I only made three, because they were a perfect size!
