  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (omit on Induction)
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. In tupperware container, add Parmesan cheese, coconut flour, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and baking powder. Place lid on container and shake to combine.

  2. In a bowl, crack one egg, and add heavy cream and water. Beat together.

  3. Remove excess fat off chicken, and slice chicken breast in to 1-inch strips on the bias against the grain of the chicken. Season the chicken with favorite seasoning.

  4. In a large container, add 3/4 cup of cheese-flour mixture. Add a handful of chicken. Shake to coat the chicken. Dunk chicken strips in the egg-cream bath, and shake off excess liquid. Return chicken to large container for second breading. Place chicken on a plate, and repeat for remaining chicken.

  5. Start oil heating to 375 degrees F, preheat oven to 200 degrees F, and place chicken in freezer for 5 to 10 minutes while oil heats.

  6. When oil is hot enough, remove chicken from freezer and place roughly a third of the pieces in the oil. Cook chicken for 5 minutes until done. Place chicken on cooking sheet in preheated oven, and repeat cooking process with remaining chicken.
