Crispy Chicken Dippers

By theladyiscrazy

Unsweetened, shredded coconut is a great, low-carb alternative for breadcrumbs.

Crispy Chicken Dippers
  • 1.5 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 cup, unsweetened, shredded coconut

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 3 T coconut oil

  1. In a shallow pan, beat egg with a little water. In another shallow pan, combine the coconut, almond flour, and salt.

  2. Melt coconut oil in a skillet.

  3. Dredge the chicken strips through the egg and then the coconut/almond flour mixture. Add the strips to the skillet and brown on both sides. Do not over crowd the pan; you will need to do it in batches.

  4. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
