KETO Chicken Fried Steak?!

Chicken fried steak is known for its thick, crispy breading – basically it’s a big carb bomb!

Enjoy as-is over a side of veggies, slice it and dip in our low-carb spicy mayo, or serve the traditional way with a white gravy (low carb of course!)

It’s all amazing! This unbelievably crispy coating will have you second-guessing whether or not this really could be keto-friendly, but it’s only 5 grams net carbs per steak!

What is Chicken Fried Steak?

If you found this post because you were searching out a low carb chicken fried steak recipe, then you probably already know what it’s all about.

For those who aren’t as familiar with southern cooking, there’s actually no chicken at all in chicken fried steak. It’s called that because the cooking method is similar to making fried chicken.

Chicken fried steak is a thin cut of steak, breaded and fried, and is traditionally served with white gravy. It should be really crispy! That’s why I love this keto chicken fried steak so much — you can actually see just how crispy the coating is!
