Ingredients

For this easy chicken bread recipe, you’ll need:

  • Egg whites and yolks
  • Chicken flour (dehydrated chicken powder)

Chicken flour is essentially powdered dried chicken, and you can either make your own using our homemade chicken flour recipe or purchase it. Additionally, we recommend adding optional ingredients such as xanthan gum to improve the texture and cream of tartar to stabilize the egg whites.

How to Make Chicken Flour Bread

While making this carnivore chicken flour bread is relatively easy, working with egg-leavened batters can be a bit tricky. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Preheat your oven to 320°F (160°C) and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the chicken flour with xanthan gum (if using).
  3. Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, adding cream of tartar or apple cider vinegar if desired.
  4. Mix the egg yolks separately to maintain their foaminess.
  5. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg whites, ensuring a uniform mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes until golden and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  8. Allow the bread to cool before slicing.

Tips for the Best Chicken Bread

To ensure your chicken bread turns out perfectly, keep these tips in mind:

Keep the egg yolk/white proportion

Maintaining the correct ratio of egg yolks to egg whites is crucial for flavor. Adjusting the number of yolks can reduce the “egg taste” and improve the overall result.

Don’t overmix the egg whites

Avoid overmixing the egg whites as they provide the leavening for this bread. Overmixing can cause them to lose their structure, leading to a collapsed loaf.

Follow the mixing order

Mix the egg yolks separately before incorporating the dry ingredients into the beaten egg whites. This ensures the flour is evenly distributed and helps maximize leavening.

Make sure the batter is uniform

Thoroughly combine the egg whites, flour mixture, and egg yolks to create a uniform batter. This ensures an even texture throughout the bread.

Storage and Freezing

Proper storage and freezing techniques can help maintain the freshness of your chicken flour bread:

  • Refrigeration: Keep the bread refrigerated for up to three days in a closed container.
  • Freezing: Wrap the loaf in paper and plastic film or place it in a freezer bag for freezing. Thaw the loaf in the fridge overnight. You can also freeze individual slices by placing parchment paper between them.
  • Thawing and Reheating: Transfer frozen slices to the fridge overnight for thawing, or use the microwave to warm them. Reheating in a toaster or toaster oven will give you toasty, buttery slices.
