Why This Recipe Works

  • It’s a wonderful low-carb keto option for taco shells
  • There are only 5-ingredients in the shell
  • You can shop at Whole Foods Market 365 for the fresh ingredients
  • Keto Fried Chicken Taco shells are one of Mr. Bejelly’s guilty pleasures

I knew the moment I met Mr. Bejelly he would be an amazing father and the moment I saw him cradle the Little right after he was born, I knew my instincts were right.

The transition from man to father happens in an instant.  There are no fireworks, no parades or grand speeches required for such a life-changing event and every day I am grateful to know our children are being raised by him.   

I was not sure what to make such an amazing man and if I should breakout my portable gas wok burner make his favorite stir fry. But I decided to do something extra special.

Of course, I had to run to one of my most favorite stores EVER – Whole Foods Market 365 to make these Keto Taco Shells.

What you need to make this Recipe:

To make these beauties you need to set up three plates (or bowls).  The first plate has crushed pork rinds.  The second, a large bowl, holds the eggs and water combined.  And finally, the third plate is for the coconut flour.  Set aside.  

Take the Pollo Asada chicken breasts and slice into 1/2″ thick pieces. You should get 3 “taco shells” from each breast.  With a mallet, pound each breast to 1/2″ thickness if your “shell” is too thick. 

Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the coconut oil and melt. 

Take each “Chicken taco shell” and first coat on both sides with coconut flour, then egg wash, then the pork rinds. 

Place the chicken taco shell in the hot coconut oil and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side until golden brown, remove from the pan and place on a paper towel. Repeat.  

One tip:

Take your time slicing the chicken breasts. Seriously, it’s not a task you want to do fast or you’ll have super thick slices.

    Am I misunderstanding Keto that 5 Grams of Carbs is 25% of the daily allowance, not 2%?

    • May 22, 2018 at 2:01 pm

      5 grams represents 2% of the % Daily Value which always equals 100. If you subtract the fiber, the net carbs is 2 net carbs per chicken taco shell.
