Keto Buffalo Chicken Tenders | Peace Love and Low Carb

Keto Buffalo Chicken Tenders

  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


These Keto Buffalo Chicken Tenders are made with tender, juicy chicken, breaded and fried until crispy, then tossed in buffalo sauce. They are excellent served with my Keto Ranch Dressing or Creamy Chive Blue Cheese


  • 1 batch Nut Free Keto Breading
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into tender-size pieces
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce (I use this brand)
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)


  1. Combine the pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and onion powder and mix until well incorporated. Pour the mixture into a thin layer on a large plate.
  2. Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl and fork whisk. Dip the chicken tenders in the egg wash, and then dredge them in the breading mixture. Make sure both sides are thoroughly coated in the breading mixture.
  3. Heat 1 to 2 inches of oil is a high-sided skillet. I like to use avocado oil for this. Once the oil is hot and begins to bubble slightly, drop the breaded chicken tenders into the oil. Fry until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3 minutes each side. Be careful not to flip them too much or else the breading will fall off.
  4. Remove the chicken tenders from the oil and place them on paper towels to absorb the excess grease.
  5. In a small sauce pan, heat the buffalo wing sauce and the butter over medium heat. Cook until the butter is melted and mixed into the sauce. Transfer the sauce to a large mixing bowl. Toss the tenders in the sauce until thoroughly coated.
