There’s a few “Paleo Fried” chicken recipes out there. I was ridiculously hungry a few Friday’s ago and had nothing on so I cooked 3 of them and a mixed version which is this one which I found to be the best. Let me know what you think! Its super simple and they are amaze! Clean up with this one is pretty much non existent too, Double win!

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken thighs (Skinless)
  • 100gr almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, as desired

Instructions

  • Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk.
  • In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together (almond flour/meal, paprika, garlic powder, salt/pepper and cayenne pepper if you want a kick!).
  • Dip the chicken thighs in to the bowl of eggs, then in to the “flour” mixture
  • Use a elevated Oven Rack and place them in Pre-heated Oven at 180C
  • Cook for 30-40 Minutes (maybe longer if thighs are big!, be sure to check them)
