Grain-Free Breaded Chicken


This recipe is delicious and easy. The breading can be used for fish and pork chops as well. You could even use it to bread vegetables if you want to experiment with vegetarian options. You’ll simply adjust cooking time according to what you are preparing! Enjoy.

  • 2 organic chicken breasts with or without tenders
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup almond meal, hazelnut meal or I use this grain-free baking flour
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon real salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lightly beat the egg in a shallow dish and set aside.
  3. Make grain-free “breading” in another shallow dish by mixing almond meal or grain-free flour, parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper.
  4. Remove the tenders from the breasts if they are still attached.
  5. Heat a large oven-safe sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  6. Add the butter and oil and bring to a shimmer.
  7. Run each tender and breast through the egg to coat it thoroughly.
  8. Cover tenders and breasts in dry mixture, turning each over and covering them entirely with the breading mixture.
  9. Add the chicken breasts to the pan. Then add tenders to the pan.
  10. Cook each piece without turning until beginning to brown, about 4-5 minutes.
  11. Turn each piece and cook until equally brown on the other side, about 4-5 minutes more.
  12. Keep breasts and tenders in the sauté pan and place in the oven. Remove tenders after about 15 minutes, or until their internal temperature is 165F. Remove breasts after about 30 minutes, or until their internal temperature is 165F.
  13. Let sit for about 5 minutes and serve with a vegetable. Enjoy!
