Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
