Yields1 Serving
Prep Time15 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time45 mins

 4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast or chicken legs
 kosher salt
 cracked pepper
 2 eggs
 ½ cup almond milk
 2 cups Cup4Cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
 peanut oil

1

Heat enough oil to 350ºF in an electric skillet or fryer to cover the chicken pieces.

2

Cut the chicken breasts in half or strips. I cut mine in half in the pictures, but strips also work well. Generously salt and pepper the chicken. If using legs just salt and pepper them...

3

Mix the eggs and milk beverage in a bowl, and place the flour in a separate bowl.

4

Dip the chicken in the flour, then dip it in the egg mixture and then back in the flour to evenly coat each piece. Place the coated pieces on a sheet pan as you work and while you wait for the oil to come to temperature.

5

Place chicken pieces in the hot oil and cook until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 170 degrees on an instant read thermometer (your best friend while cooking meat). Flipping halfway through. It took about 25 minutes for a half chicken breast. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and place it on a paper towel lined platter. Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

NOTES
6

Chicken legs take about 10 mins to cook with only 3-4 in the pot at a time... Cook separately from the chicken breast. Do them in batches so the heat of the oil stays at 350*... too much chicken in the oil will reduce the heat and make your chicken soggy oily. You want them crispy!
