Scale
  • 1 lb. organic boneless, skinless chicken breast or tenders
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon hot sauce, divided
  • 11/4 cup almond flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil

  2. Whisk egg with 1 tablespoon hot sauce.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and cayenne until combined.
