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 wiser 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!

    1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add coconut oil to the skillet.
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and water together.
    3. In another medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper and mix well.
    4. Dip chicken in eggs to coat.
    5. Roll in flour, making sure to cover the entire piece of chicken.
    6. Place in hot coconut oil.
    7. Work fast to get them all in the pan so they cook evenly at once.
    8. Flip when one side is golden brown.
    9. Cook each side for about 5-7 minutes.
    10. Drain on a paper towel-covered plate to soak up excess oil.
    11. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (we love our Bacon and Bone Broth BBQ).

  1. I'm looking forward to trying these. My husband loves chicken tenders/strips and I can't/won't eat them because of the processing and breading. How do you think coconut flour will hold up in this recipe? I currently have that on hand.

    1. I was actually going to try that too. Give it a go and let me know how they turn out. Coconut flour is bit heavier but it should work okay. Yum!

  2. I am going to make these tonight and then bake again with wing sauce on them because that's what my kids want! LOL

  3. I made these tonight, with a few small changes like less oil and I added a bit of coconut flour because we didn't have enough rice flour. also tossed some onions in the breading. they turned out great 🙂

  4. These hit the spot! I didn’t have eggs so I planned on just dipping them in goat milk first. But I got distracted and threw the strips into the rice flour first. No problem…so I then dipped them into the goat milk and then back into the rice flour. Double dip! They were amazing! I could have eaten another batch, they were so so good.
