  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • Cooking oil for frying (avocado oil or coconut oil works great)


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Cut each chicken breast into smaller, evenly sized pieces. This ensures even cooking and maximum crispiness.
  2. Season the Chicken: In a bowl, mix almond flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Coat the Chicken: In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Dip each chicken piece into the beaten eggs, then coat generously with the almond flour mixture. Make sure each piece is thoroughly coated for that extra crunch!
  4. Heat the Oil: In a large skillet, heat the cooking oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). You want enough oil to submerge the chicken pieces halfway.
  5. Fry the Chicken: Carefully place the coated chicken pieces into the hot oil, ensuring not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Drain and Serve: Once the chicken is golden and crispy, remove it from the oil and place it on a wire rack or paper towels to drain any excess oil. Serve hot and enjoy the crunchy goodness!
