Almond Flour Breaded Chicken

Almond Flour Breaded Chicken

Serves: 3 (great for a dinner for two and leftovers for lunch!)


  • 1 pound (16 ounces) of boneless, skinless chicken breasts – sliced thin
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup (84 grams) almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1  teaspoon of lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • drizzle of garlic infused olive oil
  • 3 lemon wedges
Flip carefully to keep the breading from falling off!


  1. In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour, parsley, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and optional cayenne pepper.
  2. In a shallow bowl or container, whisk the egg completely. I like to use a shallow rectangular Tupperware container. Transfer the almond flour to a large plate or second shallow container.
  3. Heat a large frying pan on the stovetop over medium heat and add the olive oil to the pan.
  4. Place a piece of chicken in the egg wash and flip the chicken so it is coated with egg on both sides. Transfer the chicken to the container with the flour mixture and flip the chicken so the flour sticks to each side. Carefully place the chicken in the pan and repeat the coating process with the remaining chicken.
  5. Cook chicken for about 6-8 minutes on both sides. Be sure that the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
  6. Serve with a drizzle of garlic infused olive oil and a lemon wedge on the side for added flavor. Enjoy with your choice of side!
