When Bread is replaced by Fried Chicken
As a younger foodie I was very impressed by ‘size’ and Epic Meal Time kind of dishes. I used to love watching videos of decadence like full hogs being roasted, pigs stuffed with turkeys and other such culinary monstrosities. Somewhere in the clamour of all this food I chanced upon the slightly less monstrous ‘Double Down’. It was apparently something that KFC introduced on their menu, it was a hamburger where fried chicken replaced the regular hamburger bun. I wasn’t even aware of Keto at that time but this was definitely a recipe for a foodgasm. I decided to cook this for a band called The Down Troddence on my show and name it ‘The Double Down Troddence’. You can watch that episode here.
Fast forward to my current Keto shenanigans and it seemed to be the perfect recipe. It was all the sin without any of the guilt. Since I made Keto fried chicken previously i didn’t have to rely on bread crumbs. This recipe was now 100% Keto friendly. So go ahead and indulge yourself. Why? Because you’re worth it.
Where are those macros?
Normally I would take the trouble to calculate the macros but there are so many variables in this recipe and I’m also on vacation. Therefore I have decided to leave them out for the time being. Maybe when I return to regular life I will calculate them or perhaps if one of you folks is kind enough to do it, leave them in a comment. Right of the bat I’m going to tell you that this is going to be a fairly high calorie recipe and it will have a good amount of protein since we’ve used chicken breast meat. Most of the fat is coming from the mayo spread and the bacon. There will also be some from the deep frying but it’s rather hard to calculate how much.
I would say, don’t fret. Just eat this as your cheat meal and be done with it. You can alternatively use pork chops for the burger buns, you could use ground beef for the burger patty and so on. The options are limitless and you can let your imagination run wild.
