This nutrient-dense delicious chicken recipe will be loved by all and nobody will know it’s grain-free! This chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I love chicken made Milanese style- which is fried in a pan and and topped with arugula, tomato, and layers of freshly grated parmesan! I like to serve mine with a few a bit of good quality parmesan but feel free to omit if you are totally dairy free!

    Fried Chicken



    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 for 2-3 minutes until hot.
    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.

    Recipe Notes
