Gluten Free Fried Chicken

We took a classic approach of triple coating the chicken, using arrowroot, eggs and almond flour. This allows the coating to cling nicely to the chicken and creates an incredibly crunchy exterior!


  • 1-4 lb. chicken cut to 10 pieces (see note)
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups almond flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 cups avocado oil, for frying method (see note)
  • avocado oil spray, for baking and air frying

To Make Hot Fried Chicken (only with deep fried chicken)

  • 4 tablespoons cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup hot avocado oil, from frying


  1. Begin by setting up your dredging station for the chicken with three shallow bowls. In one bowl place the arrowroot flour. In the second whisk 3 eggs to combine. In the third bowl whisk together the sifted almond flour and spices until combined.
  2. Dredge all chicken pieces in arrowroot, then eggs, and finally in the almond flour mixture, taking care to coat the chicken really well. Place chicken on a plate and let sit while the oil is getting hot.
