GLUTEN free, grain-free, soy-free, chemical-free, dairy-free, NO
trans fat, and NO GUILT!! oops AND Delicious!
Ok, so it’s not really fried, but will definitely give Fried Chicken a run for its money–hmmm, maybe not the best cliche, lol, sorry about that. It’s never been one of my strong points. But that said, this faux fried chicken is super simple, delicious, and cuts out all the grease, grime, gluten, grain, and will definitely make you the star of the show (well, table anyway 🙂
So get those Southern cravings ready because this recipe will quench them and make you wonder what took you so long. 🙂 Do I say that every time I post a recipe, sheesh. But the truth is, this is really delicious and I think you’ll absolutely love it and I hope it rocks your world! No need to crave fried chicken any more, yay. 🙂
And about the chicken, Tiffany and I ate a Raw Diet for 1 1/2 years and loved it. We did miss some of that savory home cooking, so we adjusted it back to a High Raw & Mediterranean Blend. So yes, we do eat chicken and wild salmon. When it comes to chicken though, there are some things to know.
When you’re so busy loving others,
walking in gratitude,
celebrating the good,
somehow all the
worries, fears, and frustrations
seem to float away
Our concern has always been more about eliminating toxins and embracing as many nutrients as we possibly can, so we only eat organic chicken. And we know what it eats, because I have a son who raises chickens with a friend on the side. Most of the chicken feed available now days is genetically modified corn or soy, so chicken can be sold as “natural” even if it has had that type of diet. As far as we’ve been able to find, in the States, I believe it must be truly organic through and through if it is USDA Certified. But I could be wrong…because I still don’t know if that means they raise it on non-gmo grains exclusively, do you know? I’d really love to find that answer if anyone knows it, so we can let everyone in on what it really means.
A little off topic, but you know what’s so weird to me? The chickens Trent raises for us get BIG. And they don’t use any hormones or antibiotics at all. So WHY do you think they use them?? I know what I think, but I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on it!
When you buy a “natural” chicken, it may say it has “no hormones or antibiotics added” umm, does that make you even just a little bit mad? Of course they haven’t “added” any hormones or antibiotics to that dead chicken. Sadly that is all that it means.
So needless to say, we eat meat sparingly, so when we do eat it, we want it to be good. And this is a great recipe that we want you to love, because it is so much better for you than the alternative.

FRIED CHICKEN GONE HEALTHY
Yes, one last thought before we begin, I highly recommend using certified organic ingredients whenever you can, so I’ve searched high and low for the best deals on each of the following certified organic ingredients that we love to use…k, enough abuse, here ya go:
- 2 eggs (optional – read why below)
- 1 full chicken cut into pieces
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 cup certified organic coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon certified organic italian seasoning
- 1 1/2 teaspoons certified organic sea salt
- 1 teaspoon certified organic turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon certified organic fresh peppercorns
- 1/2 teaspoon certified organic garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon certified organic chipotle pepper
I’ve actually found that if I wash the chicken, then cover it and stick it in the fridge for several hours or even overnight, it becomes tacky enough that I don’t need any eggs in this recipe. The flour mix will stick perfectly and it’s not near as messy, but if you prefer the mess, be my guest (actually that would be LOTS of FUN!)
1. Preheat oven to 450 F. or 230 C.
2. Prep the chicken as described above. If you’d rather use eggs, then skip this step.
3. Place all of the flour mixture ingredients together in a bag and shake together.
4. If you didn’t prep the chicken in the fridge, just place 2 eggs in a bowl and dip each piece in the egg mixture) otherwise ignore this step. Sheesh, have I confused you? I am so sorry–it sounds a little complicated, but it really isn’t. I promise!
5. Coat a cookie sheet lightly with avocado oil.
6. Drop Chicken, one piece at a time, into the bag. Shake and coat well.
7. Place chicken on greased cookie sheet and bake for just 20 minutes for the juiciest most delicious chicken ever!
Dig in (before everyone else does!)
