  • 1/4 lb Chicken Thigh Boneless and Skinless
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 oz Unflavored Pork Rinds 1/3 Cup if using Pork Panko
  • 1/3 Cup Psyllium Husk optional substitution for Unflavored Pork Rinds
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying

Optional Brine

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 tbsp Salt


  • 2 tbsp Sugar Free Ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tsp Monkfruit Erythritol Blend


  • 2 Egg
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese Shredded
  • 2 Leaf Green Leaf Lettuce optional


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Add 2 cups of water and 2 tbsp salt into a large mixing bowl. Add chicken to start brine process and brine for 1 hour. Note - you can skip this step if desired.
  • Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Once dried, sprinkle salt & black pepper on both sides and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine Sugar Free Ketchup, worcestershire sauce, Oyster Sauce and Monkfruit Erythritol Blend. Mix well and set aside.
  • Pour Unflavored Pork Rinds into a food processor and pulse until ground into very fine crumbs. You can also use your hands to crush the pork rinds if you don't have a food processor. Note - Skip this step if you are using Psyllium Husk or Pork Panko.
  • Fill 1 mixing bowl with Almond Flour, 1 mixing bowl with beaten eggs, 1 mixing bowl with crushed Unflavored Pork Rinds/Psyllium Husk.
  • In this order, dip and coat each chicken thigh: Almond Flour > eggs > crushed Unflavored Pork Rinds/Psyllium Husk. Once coated, place on holding a plate.
  • Add enough oil to cover about 1/2 inch of frying pan of choice. Place on high heat and heat up until 375F or until oil starts to lightly smoke.
  • Once the oil is ready, reduce heat to medium and carefully add chicken. Cook time will depend on the thickness, but should be for about 3-4 minutes per side (if you have a meat thermometer, serving temp of chicken is 165F). Note - if you used Psyllium Husk, cook on lower heat as it will burn easily.
  • Transfer to a drying rack. If you don't have a drying rack, use a plate with a paper towel to soak up oil.
  • Plug-in Dash Mini Waffle Maker to pre-heat.
  • In a small mixing bowl, beat egg.
  • Place about 1/8 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese on to the Dash Mini Waffle Maker, followed by ~1/2 of the egg mixture (enough to cover the iroand another 1/8 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese on top. Close lid and cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Repeat for as many waffles you are making.
  • Wash and prepare optional green leaf lettuce.
  • To assemble, place chicken katsu on top of chaffle, followed by ~1 tbsp of the sauce from step 4), the green leaf lettuce and another piece of chaffle. Enjoy!
