Fried to perfection, TikTok honey butter chicken is a keto-friendly dinner kids will beg for! It is perfect for supper or meal prep.
Is Honey Butter Keto
This recipe is basically the tastiest fried chicken you’ll ever eat, with some tangy honey butter dipping sauce. Normally honey is not keto-friendly.
So, to keep the carbs down, I used sugar-free honey. It’s a sticky sweetener that tastes just like authentic honey.
My favorite kind is Wholesome Yum sugar-free honey. It doesn’t have any funky aftertaste and really does replace honey perfectly.
And remember – whenever you cook or bake keto recipes, always use real butter. It’s full of healthy fats that are good for you.
Honey Butter Chicken
There are a lot of different things I could have called this recipe. I could have called them homemade chicken nuggets or fried chicken bites.
Anytime that you make fried chicken, always use chicken thighs, not chicken breasts. When you fry chicken breasts, they get tougher. Chicken thighs stay juicier, so they are a much better cut to use in bite-sized nuggets.
Keto Honey Chicken
There are just three ingredients in the honey butter sauce – sugar-free honey, butter, and soy sauce. If you want to avoid all carbs, then I suggest using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.
There could be traces of gluten in jarred soy sauce since it is part of the processing.
If you want to make it spicier, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or Sriacha to it. It doesn’t take much, so be careful.
TikTok Honey Butter Chicken
The TikTok honey butter chicken tastes the best when it is fresh out of the oven. Even so, you can still use it in your weekly meal prep.
Just remember that breaded chicken thigh bites will soften the longer they are in the refrigerator. To get the best texture, I suggest eating them within three days.
What To Eat With Chicken
These fried chicken nuggets have both Italian and umami flavors, so you can eat them with almost anything! Start out with Low-Carb Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Cranberries.
The Italian spices, along with the tart cranberries, taste amazing with the chicken.
Add Loaded Cauliflower Mash and some Gluten-Free Italian Breadsticks to go with the breaded and fried chicken thighs. The cauliflower mash is cheesy and filling, and the breadsticks are fun to dip into your low-carb honey butter sauce.
If you or your kids like finger foods, then keto everything bagel bites are perfect! Dip them in the sauce with the fried chicken.
For dessert, make keto berry cobbler. It’s the perfect way to finish of a tasty meal.
