Cut thawed chicken into desired length strips, pat dry with paper towel.

Place coconut flour in a flat dish wide enough for dipping.

Put eggs in a another flat dish and whisk

Put the rest of the dry ingredients in a third flat dish; stir ingredients until mixed

Line up dipping bowls and dip chicken strips first in flour, then in egg, then in coating mixture

Heat 1/4 cup coconut oil in a frying pan. Fry strips on medium heat until done, about 4-5 minutes on each side, adding oil as needed.

Do you happen to know the caloric or fat % for this meal? I would like to make it for my children but want to be sure that it is not horrible for them.

I don't like the smell of frying or the mess it makes. Is there a way to "oven fry" these? Thank you for the wonderful variety of gluten free recipes--I'm going to get going on trying them!

Coconut oil is made up of medium chain fats, which means that your body metabolizes them easily as energy, unlike long chain fats (ie: vegetable oils) which are what your bodies fat stores are cromprised of. Coconut oil has an amazing effect on metabolism, thyroid function and weight loss. I wouldnt be concerned about the calories or fat, if anything it will make your kids healthier.

I made it with organic chicken thighs which I opened up flat. I followed the recipe exactly except for serving it with sweet chili dipping sauce, which I think was necessary to finish off the dish. Hubby said it was delicious, so it's going into my recipe rotation. Thanks!
