Gluten Free Chicken Strips | Real Food RN

When I was a kid it was always a treat to go out to eat! Every time I would order the same thing: chicken strips and fries. I can still smell the greasy deliciousness. Now if I were to order that, oh boy would my stomach ache! All that GMO oil and gluten-filled breading. Now my kids are getting older and wise to these kinds of treats. I am not one to deprive them of some good old fashioned kid favorites so I came up with a healthy recipe of my own that does not have gluten and is made with healthy fats. My kids love them, and so does my husband. Now, gluten free chicken strips have become part of our regular meal rotation!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14oz) package chicken breasts, sliced into thick strips
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 3/4 cup rice flour  — where to find
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup coconut oil for frying — here is the kind we use

Directions: 

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add coconut oil to skillet
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and water together
  • In another medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper and mix well
  • Dip chicken in eggs to coat
  • Roll in flour, making sure to cover the entire piece of chicken
  • Place in hot coconut oil

  • Work fast to get them all in the pan so they cook evenly at once
  • Flip when one side is golden brown

  • Cook each side about 5-7 minutes
  • Drain on a paper towel covered plate to soak up excess oil
