Crispy Chicken Sandwich on Protein Sparing Bread
Who wants a zero carb crispy chicken sandwich???
My son saw a fast food commercial about the best crispy chicken sandwich. He said, “Mom, I bet you can make the best crispy chicken sandwich and it would actually be healthy!”
It warmed my heart so much, I jumped into the kitchen to show him how to make the most delicious keto crispy chicken sandwich on my protein sparing bread!
He said it is the best crispy chicken sandwich he ever had! Then laughed and said it was the only crispy chicken sandwich he has ever had!
I feel good feeding my family quality meals like this crispy chicken! Have you seen the ingredients list for “Chicken Breasts” in a fast food crispy chicken sandwich.

OPTIONAL SANDWICH FIXINGS:

- Use a mallet or rolling pin to pound out the chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness.
- Crack the egg into a shallow baking dish and whisk to mix well. Place the Pork King Good pork crumbs and seasoning into another shallow dish.
- Dredge chicken in the eggs and let any excess drip off, then dip both sides of the chicken in the Pork King Good pork crumbs.
- Set the coated chicken into the air fryer (if using an oven or toaster oven, place the chicken on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper). Repeat with remaining chicken breast.
- Place in the air fryer or oven and cook for 10 minutes, flipping after 5; or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside.
- Meanwhile prepare the sandwich fixings. Cut 2 slices of protein sparing bread. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add a tablespoon or 2 of butter or duck fat. Add the slices of bread and fry on one side until golden. Remove and set onto a serving plate.
- Smear mayo or mustard on the inside part of the bread. Place a piece of lettuce on the bread.
- Once the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside, place the chicken on top of the lettuce, add a slice of cheese and bacon if desired and top with the other slice of protein sparing bread.
- Best served fresh!
TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Four years and about 50lbs difference between these photos. I used to hide behind layers of baggy clothes. I excused my poor diet by working out regularly. Guess what? You cannot outrun or out lift a crap diet.
I was overweight and riddled with pain and inflammation caused by my out of control autoimmune diseases.
Today I wear what I want with confidence, I’m off ALL pharmaceuticals, I’ve fired most of my doctors (I don’t need them anymore!) and I get so much more out of my workouts and enjoy every moment of my life!
On December 31st, 2018 I dove into Emmerich keto and haven’t looked back. From a former pizza, tacos, candy, Diet Coke & beer junkie I promise you if I can do this so can you! Maria Wojcik Emmerich & Craig Emmerich saved my life and I’ll spend the rest of it helping others discover this way of living too!” Autumn
We are trying these out tonight. Can’t wait! Thank you for creating this recipe!
What is P:E ratio?
P:E ratio is protein to energy ratio. It is the grams of protein divided by the grams of fat plus grams of carbs minus fiber. 🙂
Would this be an option for a protein sparing modified fasting day?
It could work for a PSMF day, yes. 🙂
Enjoying your Canivore cookbook and loving your recipes! Are the macros for 1 or 2 servings of the chicken sandwich?
Thanks! Macros are always for one serving. 🙂
