Keto Cauli Chicken Chaffle


All board!  The next stop on this chaffle train express is our newly created Keto Cauli Chicken Chaffle!  I know, it’s a lame opening but I bet you can’t say that 3 times really fast without your tongue getting lost somewhere in your mouth!

Anyway getting back to the recipe, it seems that chaffles are the new low-carb/keto craze and since we’re a website focused on low-carb/keto Asian inspired recipes, we thought we’d create a chaffle recipe based on just that.

So this all started with the idea of making our Japanese Beef Garlic Fried Rice into a chaffle and after a couple of test batches…let’s just say it was vetoed pretty quickly.  Way too salty and no depth of flavors.

From there, we started to take away ingredients to balance out the flavors and adjusted ingredient ratios.  After about 2 hours of testing and multiple test batches, out came this chaffle brimming of chicken umami flavors.  The flavors are nothing too overpowering, making it an ideal choice for a quick and light lunch!

When we started LCA, if you ever told us that we would be making a chicken cauliflower waffle, I probably would’ve laughed!  But here we’re doing just that and you know what, it came out pretty good!  Like Mr. Gump once said, ‘…you never know what you’re gonna get”!

This chaffle will run ~2g net carbs per waffle, so ~6g net carbs for the entire serving.  3 waffles is filling enough for me, but mileage may vary depending on the individual. 

For this dish, the special ingredients you would need are Soy Sauce and White Pepper, which you can get on Amazon or at a local supermarket.  You will also need a waffle maker.  We use the Dash Mini Waffle Maker because it makes the perfect size waffles, but any waffle maker will do.   You also can use precooked chicken if you want but will alter the taste.

Note – If you are preparing multiple servings, we would recommend using 2 Dash Mini Waffle Maker simultaneously to reduce the cooking time.

Now if you’re ready, let’s rock!

      Hey Natalie! I actually didn’t know those were called Foo Young Esque! Good to know that they work well as a Chaffle and might have to look into myself!
