  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut in half
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup pork rind crumbs
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

Spice Blend:

  • 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sweetener e.g., Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Spice Blend:

  • Begin by creating your spice blend. Mix cayenne pepper, paprika, chili powder, brown sweetener, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

Preparing the Chicken:

  • Slice each chicken breast in half so that they fit perfectly on your bun.
  • Coat the chicken with half of the spice blend generously. Allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Coating Mixture:

  • In a shallow bowl, combine Greek yogurt, one egg, a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, and a touch of water. Whisk until well blended.

Breadcrumb Substitute:

  • In another shallow bowl, mix almond flour and pork rind crumbs. Season with salt and pepper.

Coating the Chicken:

  • Dip each seasoned chicken piece into the spicy yogurt and egg mixture to ensure it’s well coated.
  • Dredge the coated chicken through the almond flour and pork rind crumb mixture, making sure both sides are evenly coated.

Air Frying:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and place each coated chicken breast inside.
  • Lightly spray the tops of the chicken with cooking spray as well.
  • Air fry for 8-10 minutes on each side until the chicken is cooked through.

Finishing Touch:

  • In a separate bowl, mix the remaining half of the seasoning blend with 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter.
  • Brush this flavorful mixture onto the cooked chicken for an extra burst of deliciousness.

Assembling the Sandwich:

  • Serve your crispy chicken on your favorite low-carb burger bun.
