Emma + Carla
- 8 chicken thighs
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 2 tbs. tapioca flour
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- salt and pepper
- coconut oil or macadamia oil for pan
- Lay a piece of cling wrap on the bench, place chicken thighs flat, place another piece of cling wrap on top and pound to about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thin. We used the back of a knife, you could use a meat mallet. Set aside.
- In a bowl combine the almond meal, tapioca flour, paprika, oregano and salt and pepper.
- In another bowl whisk the eggs.
- Coat the chicken in the almond meal mixture and then dip into the eggs. Shake off excess and dip back in to the almond meal mix.
- Continue to do this for all chicken pieces.
- In a large fry pan heat a little cooking oil to medium heat.
- Place the chicken thighs into the fry pan and cook for 6 minutes, flip and cook for another 6 minutes or until cooked through. Continue this process with all chicken pieces.
- Use smaller bits of chicken to make chicken nuggets or strips. YUM!
