Gluten Free Chicken Milanese

Gluten Free Chicken Milanese

This Gluten Free Chicken Milanese is my healthy spin on a classic Italian dish. It’s made with paleo breaded chicken and a lemon dressed arugula and tomato salad. It’s the perfect grain-free, healthy, and delicious Summer meal!

Ingredients

Scale

Paleo Breaded Chicken:

  • 1 pound chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • Pinch freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil, for frying

Salad:

  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Big pinch fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper, more to taste
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese, optional

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine flours, salt, and ground black pepper.
  2. In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together eggs.
  3. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper. Using a meat pounder, gently pound chicken until it is 1/4 inch thick. Place on a cutting board, and slice chicken breasts in half.
  4. Dip sliced chicken breasts into the egg, then dredge in flour mixture, dip back into the egg mixture, and into the flour one more time. Dipping the chicken in the egg and flour mixtures twice helps create an extra thick and crispy crust. Repeat until all chicken is coated.
  5. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot and shimmering.
  6. Place chicken in the skillet and let fry for 5-8 minutes on each side. Cook until chicken is crispy and golden-brown, but juicy in the center.
  7. Toss arugula and tomatoes with oil, lemon, salt, and pepper. Add-in parmesan if using.
  8. Place a bed of arugula on a plate and add chicken. Top with a handful of tomatoes and arugula. Serve warm with a few wedges of lemon.

Notes

  • Cooking time will vary based on thickness of chicken. Make sure to keep an on eye on them to avoid overcooking. Make sure to add more oil if needed during the cooking process.
