I love me some good chicken strips! I had this coconut flour in my cupboard, and decided to give it a try. I'm going to be completely honest here...I made cookies with coconut flour and they were vile. I am grateful to have found a use for my coconut flour, other than baking.
The thing I love most about these babies is the light coconut flavor you get from the flour. I also love the crispiness of them. These are a great "throw together" meal when you just don't have any imagination for dinner. Who doesn't love an easy meal?!
Coconut flour chicken strips
2 Chicken breasts, thawed and cut into strips
1/2 cup Coconut flour
1 Egg, beaten
Plate for flour
Bowl for egg
1/2 cup Oil for frying (I used olive)
Salt and pepper
Instructions: Slice thawed chicken breasts into strips. Season with salt and pepper (optional-onion powder) **This next part will determine how much breading you want.....I am content with less breading so I do mine this way: Dip sliced chicken breast in beaten egg, next, roll breast in flour, then place in skillet with 1/2 C oil. Cook on medium/high heat until cooked thoroughly. Mine cooked for 7 minutes on one side, and then 7 minutes on the other side. If you prefer more breading follow these steps: Roll strips of breast in flour, then dunk in egg, then roll in flour again. Place in 1/2 C heated oil. Cook on medium/high heat until thoroughly cooked. Mine typically cook for 7 minutes per side. You will want to flip them after you get a nice browning on one side.
Once strips are cooked, place on a plate that has been covered with a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. Serve immediately. **Note. The longer these strips sit, the softer the breading gets. They are best when eaten immediately. We like to dip ours in fry sauce. To make fry sauce: mix mayonnaise and ketchup (equal parts) in a bowl. Add a touch of vinegar to really kick it up a notch.
Yields 6-7 chicken strips
Step by Step:
Slice thawed chicken breasts into strips. Season with salt and pepper (optional-onion powder)
Pour flour out on plate. Have the beaten egg in a bowl next to the plate, ready to go.
Dip sliced chicken breast in beaten egg, next, roll breast in flour
Make sure the breast is evenly coated
then place in skillet with 1/2 C oil. Cook on medium/high heat until cooked thoroughly
I split this strip open to make sure they were properly cooked. --Once strips are cooked, place on a plate that has been covered with a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. Serve immediately.
