Pizza Hut Chicken Fingers

Want to get your kids eating keto? Make them my Pizza Hut Chicken Fingers!

I remember growing up, we had Italian Dunkers at school lunch which was basically a bunch of white bread with cheese on it that you dipped into pizza sauce. Basically no protein for our growing bodies!

I wish I could have been served these delicious Pizza Hut Chicken Fingers instead! The spice mix tastes just like Pizza Hut pizza! It is delicious on everything! You must try it!

I understand that life gets busy and sometimes we need to find shortcuts. I once always made my own bone broth, sauces, marinara sauces, but that’s because there weren’t any good store-bought options. Now I find myself making my Pizza Hut Chicken Fingers (as well as my Protein Noodle Lasagna) with Primal Kitchen Marinara Sauces! They are delicious, organic and they do not have any sugar nor vegetable oils in the ingredients!

Primal Kitchen Marinara Sauces are not only filled with top quality ingredients, it is also delicious! I love that I can easily open a jar and use it to make my Pizza Hut Chicken Fingers in an instant!

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 3 inch by 1 inch strips (Click HERE)
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup powdered Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
  • Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray



  • Cut the chicken breasts into chicken finger shapes and set aside.
  • Place the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano in a large shallow bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Place the eggs into another large shallow bowl and beat with a fork.
  • Dip each chicken finger into the egg mixture, then into the Pizza Hut Spice mixture. Use your hands to coat the chicken well.
  • Spray with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray.
  • Place the coated chicken fingers onto the parchment lined basket (or cookie sheet). Place in the air fryer and fry at 375 degree F (or oven) for 20 minutes, flipping 1/2 way through.
  • NOTE: You can also pan-fry the fingers by heating ½ inch of duck fat or ghee in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat to 375°F. Once the oil is hot, fry the nuggets in batches until golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a platter and serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, place on a rimmed baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven for about 3 minutes, until heated through.

“I’m reading your Carnivore book. I’m an adjunct professor of nutrition. Here is what I’m noticing. We are being taught to eat the least nutritious foods and in huge amounts. They are leading the people down the widest and quickest path of destruction possible. If you look at the nutrient content of the foods (thanks to your beautiful charts), how can one not see what is going on? If you look at the nutrient deficiencies and the diseases and did-eases they cause, again, how can one not see?

Anyone following your and Maria’s work can see and know that you nailed it with the Carnivore book. That book is a spotlight pointing out the dark corners. THAT is why I feel you two have been placed under the microscope of silence.

Keep shouting it from the rooftops and I will keep repeating it in my classrooms. Godspeed to you both.” – Beth

    Maria, I’m so very thankful I found you. I purchased your Art of Fat Loss book and it has truly been so educational for me. I’m actually losing weight without feeling like I’m starving (which is what has happened to me in the last couple of years with my constant yo-yo, quick fix dieting) and stopped eating a ton of cheese and nuts. I didn’t realize how confused I was.
    Just a question…as a mother of young sons who wants to continue to establish healthier eating habits for them, which cookbook of yours would you recommend that kids would enjoy?
    Thank you so much for your delicious recipes and YouTube videos! I’m always waiting for the next one!

    Those look delicious! I also love the La Victoria marinara sauce. It has the best taste I’ve found. I get it from Costco. No added sugars.

    I purchased your Protein Sparing Modified Fast ebook. I started trying to find it on my iPad thinking it was downloaded, but I cannot find it. Any suggestions how I can get to it? Darlene A.
