Coconut Fried Chicken

by kellylavieri on April 11, 2015

 

What you need:

  • 1 pound chicken, cut into thin, 2 inch chunks (I used chicken breasts because that was what I had on hand, but I do prefer the dark stuff)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1-2 eggs (or 1/2 cup egg whites)
  • Oil or grease for frying (use coconut oil)
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Optional: dried dill for the coating

What you gotta do:

  • Heat a few tablespoons of cooking fat of your choice in a cast iron skillet at medium to medium high
  • Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper
  • Beat eggs or pour egg whites into a bowl
  • Mix coconut flour and shredded coconut with optional dill in another bowl
  • Dip chicken in egg wash, then coat in coconut mixture
  • Fry until golden brown and cooked through (this is where the small pieces come in handy, as it takes less time to cook through)
  • Immediately lay on a paper towel to absorb extra, unnecessary oil
