Coconut Chicken

If you're not serving this with a flavorful dip, you might wish to add some seasonings to the coating mixture. Here at LCL, we added 1 teaspoon Spike Seasoning. Although the recipe calls for 1/2 cup each almond flour and coconut, I had about 1/4 cup of the mixture left after coating my chicken. The nutrition counts reflect the actual amount used, but you'll need to have the full amount for easy coating.
Coconut Chicken
  • 3 thin boneless chicken breast cutlets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg white, beaten until frothy
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, finely ground, 1 1/4 ounces
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, 2 ounces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup oil, for frying

Mix coconut and almond flour in a shallow bowl. Cut each breast into 2 pieces; season with salt and pepper. Dip in egg white, then in coconut to coat on both sides, pressing gently to coat them well. Sprinkle with a little additional salt, if desired. Chill an hour or so until just before cooking time to allow the coating to set up. Fry in hot oil in skillet until golden brown and chicken is cooked through. Serve with a dipping sauce, if desired.

Makes 3 to 4 Servings
