Coconut Chicken Schnitzel

A great option for those who are gluten-intolerant! We crumbed our chicken breasts in a mixture of coconut flour and desiccated coconut and lightly fried them. What goes well with coconut? Lime, of course, which should be generously squeezed over. A lovely, fresh way to enjoy chicken breasts. We have it pictured here with a simple, green salad, but grilled vegetables may be a better option for winter – which is just around the corner!

Ingredients:

2 TB coconut flour
1 egg, whisked
2 TB coconut flour, additional
2 TB desiccated coconut
2 ATHLEAT chicken breasts, skinless and deboned
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 TB olive oil
lime wedges, to serve
serve with salad or vegetables of your choice

Method:

  1. Prepare three bowls:
    Place two tablespoons of coconut flour into the first bowl.
    Place the whisked egg into the second bowl.
    Place the second-mentioned two tablespoons coconut flour into the third bowl, as well as the two tablespoons desiccated coconut, mixing to combine.
  2. One at a time, place the chicken breast between two sheets of cling film and flatten using a flat side of a meat pallet to approximately 1.5cm thick. Remove and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Place each breast (one at a time) into the first bowl, coating the chicken on both sides in a dusting of the coconut flour. Shake off excess flour. Then, dip the chicken into the egg mixture and allow the excess egg to run off back into the egg bowl. Lastly, lay the chicken in the third bowl, pressing the chicken into the coconut/desiccated coconut mixture on both sides. Do this with both pieces of chicken.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and fry the crumbed chicken fillets on both sides until golden and cooked through. (If you are unsure about whether they are cooked through, you can either check by simply cutting open and looking, or you can pop them into a preheated oven set at 160°C for 8-10 minutes to be double sure.)
  5. Serve with lime wedges which should be generously squeezed over.
