Almond-Flour Fried Chicken
This recipe is a hit with my crowd. I use this recipe on all kinds of chicken pieces (breasts, drumsticks, etc.) as well as frequently making “chicken nuggets” out of this recipe. I never cook for one meal and neither should you. Always calculate making enough for leftovers. Double or triple this.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (preferably free-range) or any chicken parts
3 eggs, beaten
¼ cup of Almond milk
1 cup of Almond-flour
1 t. of garlic powder
1 t. of onion powder
1 t. of paprika
Seasoning salt and pepper to taste.
Olive oil to cook in.
(Actually, I use more garlic, onion, and paprika than this so adjust it to your family’s preference.)
Mix the eggs with the almond milk. Separately, mix the almond-flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper (I often use a Ziploc bag for this). Dip the chicken in the egg mixture and then dip and coat with the dry ingredients mixture. Cook on the stove in olive oil. Fry the chicken about 7 to 10 minutes on each side, or until it’s ready. This is satisfying comfort food!

I am almost finished reading Skinny School and it has truly changed my life!!! I have never read anything more motivating and encouraging as it relates to the constant struggle I have had with my weight. Thank you so much! I am so sorry that I am almost finished with Jackie’s story but now excited about writing my own. 🙂 I have tried several of your recipes (quiche, meatballs, chicken) and they are delicious but would love to know what you think the carb/sugar count is for them. I am tracking everything that goes in but sometime have a hard time guessing like this chicken recipe. May God continue to bless you! You are truly making a difference in lives of women (I shared this book with at least 4 of my friends and we are all in Skinny School!!).
Deb, What a wonderful comment. I truly enjoyed reading it. I do not know the exact carb/sugar count of those recipes. I probably need to get a nutritionist to measure that. I know they are all low sugar-low carb, but I don’t have exact numbers. Sorry. Julie
Hey, I love to eat chicken. Can’t wait to try these! Sounds Yummy!
Thank you so much for sharing.
I made this but instead of frying in oil, I baked them. So delicious!!!!
If you go to MyFitnessPal you can create a recipe. It will break down nutritional information for you. I just finished reading Wife School, which I absolutely loved. I have just started reading Skinny School. I am looking forward to what God can do for me in this area.
Made this on Tues.. it was truly excellent and I was ecstatic about not feeling guilty eating fried chicken. Thanks for the recipe.
