  1. Before chopping the chicken thighs into small chunks, make sure to thoroughly wash and dry them.
  2. Grind the garlic cloves and all the spices with a blender or a mortar. Flavor the chicken with this spice mix. Crack in the egg and pour the milk into the seasoned chicken pieces. Stir well to marinate well.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a covered container and let it chill in the fridge for around an hour. Flip the chunks occasionally.
  4. Pour the protein powder in a plastic container with a lid. Put the chicken in the container before replacing the lid. Shake well to coat the chicken entirely.
  5. Set a deep fryer to 375 degrees and heat the oil in the fryer. Crispy fry the chicken for 5-7 minutes. Wait till the chunks become golden brown and crispy enough to your liking.
  6. Transfer to a platter with any keto-approved dip of your choice.
