Homemade Low Carb Popcorn Chicken Recipe

Crispy, crunchy, juicy, I am willing to bet these will quickly become a family favorite, especially when you serve them with my famous Dump Ranch (recipe included)! Livin’ that low carb life? Use coconut or almond flour! And as always, feel free to switch up your Seasonings to change the flavor profile. I LOVE making these with the Ragin Cajun or the Rustic Italian.

Tiny Little Chef Seasonings Used

What You Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. extra light olive oil this is KEY
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 2 T. white vinegar
  • 1 c. full fat coconut CREAM Thai brand is best...make sure it's the cream
  • 1 handful of chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 1/2 T. TLC Original House Seasoning

How to Make It

  • To a container add all ingredients except the cilantro or parsley and use a handheld immersion blender to emulsify the ingredients. You may also use a good quality traditional blender. Blend well until totally emulsified and then stir in the chopped herbs.
  • TIP: When using an immersion blender use the container that came with it and add the egg, then oil, the coconut cream, then vinegar, lemon juice, and seasonings. Stick the immersion blender at the bottom of the container, turn on, and do not move it until a lot of bubbles start to form on the top. Once this has happened you may move the blender around to make sure everything is well combined.
