Tips and Tricks:

– You can use other types of cheese for this sandwich as well.

– Feel free to add extra seasonings or spices to the almond flour mixture for different flavor profiles.

– If you’d like a crunchier texture, try coating the chicken with crushed pork rinds instead of almond flour.

– For a gluten-free option, use lettuce wraps in place of buns.

– Use keto-approved condiments such as mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce or guacamole.

– If using lettuce wraps, ensure to partially cook the chicken before adding it, as the raw chicken will not cook when wrapped in lettuce.
