The chicken can be breaded in advance – just prepare up to stage 4 (in the recipe card) and store the chicken bites in the fridge until required. Adjust the cooking time as necessary to ensure that they are cooked through.
How to Make Low Carb Paprika Chicken Bites
Mix together almond flour, flaxseed meal, and paprika in a bowl. Add an egg to a different bowl and beat it lightly with a fork.
Cut the chicken breasts into chunks (or strips, whichever you prefer) and add one to the egg mixture, coating it fully.
Dunk each piece of chicken into the paprika “breading” mixture, and turn to coat. Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, foil, or parchment paper.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve with any vegetable side dish, salad, or shirataki rice. Or you could even put the chicken bites in a low carb tortilla!
This recipe will serve two as a main meal, but you could also serve it as an appetizer! Perfect for sharing!
