Servings: 4 people
- 3-4 tablespoons refined coconut oil for frying
- 1 lb boneless chicken Sliced into thin strips
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt I love this Himalayan pink salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Add coconut oil to a large pan (I recommend a cast iron pan) and heat on medium low while preparing the chicken.
Add egg to a bowl and whisk.
To a second bowl, add all dry ingredients and mix to ensure they are well-combined.
Drop chicken into egg and coat thoroughly.
Remove chicken from egg and add into the dry coconut flour mixture. Ensure that chicken is fully coated.
Drop breaded chicken into the frying pan piece by piece. Allow to cook until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes on each side. Ensure chicken is cooked to 180F before removing from pan.
Place fried chicken on a paper towel to cool. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before consuming, as the oil is incredibly hot.
