Today Mr. Rogue asked me for some old fashioned fried chicken, I guess he had a hankering for some comfort food.
I starting digging through my flour subs to see what I could come up with and I think I hit the jackpot with this recipe.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
- 1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 eggs (optional)
- 1/2 cup xanthan gum
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- peanut oil for frying
- Add flours & xanthan gum to a large plastic bag. Season the mixture with paprika, salt and pepper to taste (paprika helps to brown the chicken). In a separate bowl, mix the almond milk and eggs together with a fork.
- Dip chicken pieces in almond milk and egg then, a few at a time, put them in the bag with the flour, seal the bag and shake to coat well.
- Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
- Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
- You can also fry in a deep fryer if you have one, I did mine in my fry daddy...two legs at a time.
- Drain the fried chicken on paper towels and nom!
