Paleo Crumbed Chicken

My little man is getting to a stage where he is being super fussy with food so
I’ve been testing out some different recipes lately and this one has been a real winner with the kids. With gluten being an issue in this house I love this alternate version of an old favourite.

You will need:

  • 500gm skinless chicken (either breast or thigh) you can either cut into strips or leave whole
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil

Side Note:

You will need your oven at the end of this recipe and as I usually serve with baked veggies I prepare the veggies first and pop them in the oven at 180 then while they are cooking I prepare the chicken. However please note if you are not serving with baked veggies turn on the oven to 180* to preheat.


In a bowl add your tapioca flour

In a second bowl crack the 2 eggs and whisk lightly with a fork until yolk and white are combined

In a third bowl add your almond flour, and coconut flour and salt and pepper and stir together

Now that you have your 3 coating bowls ready, coat your chicken pieces in each bowl starting with the tapioca flour, then the egg, then the final almond/coconut flour mix.

Once all your chicken pieces are coated heat the coconut oil in a fry pan and fry all the pieces until coating is browned.

To ensure the chicken is cooked through without burning the coating transfer all chicken pieces into a baking dish lined with baking paper and cook for an additional 15min. Note: I usually take the chicken out and check it is thoroughly cooked by slicing into one of the thickest pieces and checking. If it needs more time I just pop them back in the oven for a little longer.

You can use this simple recipe for so many different dishes – parmigiana, crumbed chicken dippers, schnitzel to name a few. I hope it’s a winner in your home too!
