Cassava Flour Breaded Buffalo Chicken

Print

Whether you eat this Whole30 Crispy Buffalo Chicken on top of a veggie loaded salad or alongside oven roasted french fries and celery sticks or even by itself dipped into homemade ranch dressing, you cannot go wrong! As soon as I took my first bite, I knew this recipe was going to be a new part of my weekly meal rotation.

As someone that is allergic to gluten, among other food allergies, it has always been important to me to recreate recipes I love but also fall in line with my dietary restrictions. I have always loved breaded chicken of all kinds, and just recently created this Cassava Flour Breaded Buffalo Chicken!

I simply took my original recipe for Cassava Flour Breaded Chicken coated it in buffalo sauce. Dare I say it’s a new favorite?

Here’s the thing, whether you also have food sensitives, try to eat clean foods and ingredients, or if you don’t pay attention to either of the above, I have a strong feeling you’ll love my healthy recipes inspired by the traditional versions I had growing up. Give this one a try and see for yourself! It’s one of those recipes you have to do a double take to remember that it’s healthy.

It’s versatile, too. It is amazing over salad loaded with lots of fresh veggies and equally as amazing when made into chicken fingers with homemade fries or in between lettuce buns as an “unwich.” You can serve it up any way to make everyone at your table happy!

Further Food Commentary:

Chicken breasts are a good source of lean protein. For people who eat meat, consuming chicken is a simple way to meet some of your body's protein needs without also consuming a lot of fat. Depending on the cooking method you choose, chicken breasts are also naturally low in sodium.

Cassava Flour Breaded Buffalo Chicken

  • Prep Time:1 Hour
  • Cook Time:20 Minutes
  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

2 lbs chicken breast

1 egg

½ cup coconut milk

1 cup cassava flour

1 teaspoon paprika

1 tablespoon garlic salt

1 tablespoon onion powder

2 teaspoons avocado oil

4 tablespoons buffalo sauce

Instructions

  1. Whisk egg and milk together in a large bowl. Place all of your chicken into the bowl, ensuring it is all covered. Place the bowl in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat a pan on the stove over medium heat with avocado oil for about five minutes or until warm.
  3. While the pan is heating, mix together cassava flour, paprika, garlic salt and onion powder in a large bowl and place next to the stove.
  4. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and place the bowl next to the cassava flour mixture.
  5. Piece by piece, move chicken from the milk to the flour using a fork and cover completely.
  6. Carefully transfer the chicken to the stove and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side. Tip: if the bottom of your pan is coated in excess flour after cooking a batch, clean out pan and start the oil heating step again to achieve clean, not burnt chicken.
  7. Move the chicken to a drying rack and let cool so that the coating is less likely to fall off.
  8. Once chicken cools a bit, coat with buffalo sauce.
  9. Enjoy!
