Easy Fried Chicken

We took a classic approach of triple coating the chicken, using arrowroot, eggs and almond flour. This allows the coating to cling nicely to the chicken and creates an incredibly crunchy exterior!

Easy Fried Chicken

THE RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1-4 lb. chicken cut to 10 pieces
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups almond flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 cups avocado oil, for frying method
  • Avocado oil spray, for baking and air frying
To Make Hot Fried Chicken
  • 4 tablespoons cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup hot avocado oil, from frying


Directions:

  1. Begin by setting up your dredging station for the chicken with three shallow bowls. In one bowl place the arrowroot flour. In the second whisk 3 eggs to combine. In the third bowl whisk together the sifted almond flour and spices until combined.
  2. Dredge all chicken pieces in arrowroot, then eggs, and finally in the almond flour mixture, taking care to coat the chicken really well. Place chicken on a plate and let sit while the oil is getting hot.
Deep Frying
  1. Heat avocado oil over medium to medium-high heat in a heavy bottomed tall dutch oven or similar pot. Heat oil until it reaches 325º. We recommend you use an instant read thermometer or candy thermometer to check the oil temperature.
  2. Place 3-4 pieces of chicken in the pot at a time to fry, being careful not to overcrowd so that the oil temperature stays consistent. Fry, flipping once around 10 minutes, until the chicken reaches at least 165º, about 15-20 minutes depending on the specific cut of chicken.
  3. Place chicken on a plate lined with paper towel to drain the excess oil and season with salt.
  4. Before placing more chicken in the pot, check the temperature to make sure it is 325º. Adjust the heat setting to maintain the temperature and when ready add more chicken.
  5. Fry until no chicken remains. Serve immediately.
  6. If making the Hot Chicken let the frying oil cool 5-10 minutes. In a small bowl whisk spices together. Add one cup of avocado frying oil to the bowl and whisk to combine. Brush hot mixture on to both sides of the chicken and serve immediately.
Air Frying
  1. Pre-heat air fryer to 390ºF. 
  2. Spray the air fryer basket with avocado oil spray and place 2-3 pieces of chicken in the basket. Spray the chicken as well. 
  3. Cook at 390ºF for 12 minutes and then flip the chicken, spraying with additional avocado oil. Cook for an additional 8 minutes.
  4. Continue with remaining chicken until it has all cooked through.
  5. Check the temperature of the chicken to make sure it has reached 165, especially larger pieces like the breast.
Baking
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF and place an oven safe wire rack on rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Place chicken on wire rack, with plenty of space in between and spray liberally with avocado oil spray. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Flip the chicken and spray with additional avocado oil and continue to bake until all chicken is cooked through, 15-20 minutes more. Check to make sure an internal temperature of the meat (close to the bone) reaches at least 165ºF.
