Primal Kitchen’s Keto Friendly Spicy Chicken Sandwich Just Joined The Spicy Chicken Sandwich Battle

The battle of crunchy friend chicken sandwiches hasn’t finished yet. Which one is your favorite, Chick-fil-A or Popeyes, or KFC? I guess there is no one that you can try if you are on a keto diet. But what you can do is to make a keto friendly chicken sandwich at home with Primal Kitchen’s Mayo with Avocado Oil and Buffalo Sauce.

This recipe’s spicy chicken sandwich is keto friendly, thanks to a keto bun, pork rind-coated chicken tenders, and a mix of our Keto Certified Buffalo Sauce and Mayo with Avocado Oil. It’s a keto version of a Nashville hot chicken sandwich, but one that can be made easily anytime at home. If you don’t have or don’t want to use keto-friendly bread, this savory, crunchy, sour, spicy sandwich can be made into a wrap—collards or romaine provide a sturdy enough leaf to contain the heft.



  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • In a food processor, pulse pork rinds until they are the consistency of bread crumbs. You can also place pork rinds and parmesan into a plastic baggie, seal it, and pound it into small bits using a rolling pin.
  • Pour crumbs into a tray or a large plate. In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or ghee. When melted, pour butter into a tray or large plate.
  • Coat chicken tenders in butter, and then coat in crumb mixture. Press as much coating onto each breast as possible. Bake chicken for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked (to be safe, insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast. The internal temperature should be 160º when fully cooked.).
  • Dilute mayo with water; stir and set aside.
  • Assemble the keto spicy chicken sandwiches. Split the buns apart. Tear each large piece of iceberg lettuce into 2 smaller pieces, and place 1 piece on top of each bun bottom. Layer 2 chicken tenders on top of each piece of lettuce, drizzle on some buffalo sauce, add 2 more chicken tenders on top, and drizzle with more buffalo sauce. Add 2 pickles then 1 more piece of lettuce. Spoon on mayo, another 2 pickles, then the tops of the buns to close the sandwich.

Keto Friendly Zucchini Fries
(make your sandwich meal to a combo!)



  • Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Cut the ends off of each zucchini. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise, and cut each half into quarters. Cut each zucchini quarter into matchsticks (the size and shape of fries).
  • Add 1 cup grated parmesan cheese, dried herbs, garlic powder, almond flour, and salt to a bowl or glass container.
  • In a separate bowl or glass container, whisk together eggs with a fork until they are well combined.
  • Dip each zucchini matchstick in the eggs a few times, then dip into the cheese and flour mixture a few times until well coated. Place the zucchini fries on a parchment-lined baking sheet spaced apart in one layer. Repeat coating process until all matchsticks are coated.
  • Bake zucchini fries for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with Primal Kitchen Rosemary Garlic Vegan Mayo or Primal Kitchen Organic Unsweetened Ketchup.

Now, time to enjoy the best spicy chicken sandwich in the keto world!

Dermatologist Julie Russak Shares Six Skincare Tips to Alleviate the Winter Itch

When the cold weather arrives, so does lowered humidity, making dry and itchy skin an uncomfortable but customary part of the winter season as the body naturally reacts to the abrupt temperature changes. In addition to seasonal changes, drying soaps and detergents can trigger factors such as eczema, psoriasis, and aging creating additional seasonal skin irritation. Julie Russak, M.D., FAAD., Board-Certified Dermatologist and founder of Russak Dermatology Clinic and Russak+ Aesthetic Center provides advice on how to best care for skin in the colder weather.

“Paying careful attention to your own body and taking note of any skin discomfort is one of the first steps to relieve any itching and dryness,” says Dr.  Russak. “Because skin irritation is common during the winter, with cold weather as one of the top culprits for itchy skin, there are many over-the-counter treatments available to help quickly address winter itch at the first sign of discomfort.”

To help soothe itchy and dry skin, try the following tips:

  1. Pay attention to your skin type. It’s important to use skincare products geared specifically for your skin type – whether it’s normal, dry, oily, combination or sensitive skin. Oil-free soap is recommended for acne-prone skin and for dry skin, it is best to avoid witch hazel.
  2. Apply an intensive moisturizer or ointment when stepping out of the shower. Water evaporates off the skin quickly after a shower and can leave skin feeling dry, making it the perfect time to moisturize skin. Powerhouse ingredients like hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, and petrolatum bind water and help retain moisture. Petrolatum is used in products like Aquaphor Healing ointment which can be used to soothe over dry and cracked skin as well as prevent moisture loss.
  3. Use oil-free and fragrance-free soaps, lotions, and creams. Those who frequently hand-wash and bathe use plenty of drying soaps with irritating ingredients which further cause skin discomfort in the winter. Make sure to apply a fragrance-free lotion or hand cream after washing hands to help soothe and subdue dry and patchy skin.
  4. Use a hypoallergenic, fragrance free laundry detergent. Laundry detergent with artificial dyes and skin irritants can trigger skin reactions and cause further irritation to dry skin – especially with all of winter’s extra clothing: layers, scarves, sweaters, hats, and now masks. Try Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin, Free & Clear detergent when washing clothing and face masks—this product is specifically formulated for sensitive skin and dermatologist-tested to help avoid skin irritation and itchiness altogether, and avoid products that advertise “wrinkle free” such as drying sheets.
  5. Advance to a thicker cream or ointment if lotion isn’t hydrating enough. For those who need extra moisture and protection from the dry air, a cream is a great barrier for the skin since it’s thicker, locking in moisture. For a comprehensive winter skin routine, try a light serum on the face followed by a thicker cream or oil.
  6. Avoid extreme temperature changes. A humidifier is great for those who suffer from dry skin and eczema as temperatures fluctuate throughout the seasons. A humidifier can help the indoor spaces maintain a relatively cool environment with a humidity level of 30-40% for the winter months.

“While over the counter options are quick and simple to implement into your lifestyle, make sure to consult your dermatologist before making any extreme changes to skincare and see if these changes are right for your skin conditions,” adds Russak.
