2 lb. Blackwing Organic Chicken Breasts
4 c King Arthur All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Mix
1 Tbsp. Sea Salt
1 Tsp. Simply Organic Poultry Seasoning
4 Farmhouse Organic Gluten Free Eggs
1 pint Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Large cutting board
2 mixing bowls
1 large frying pan
Platter for serving
Pour the coconut oil into the frying pan and begin warming it at medium heat while you prepare the chicken fingers. Since coconut oil contains good fats that stand up well to the long, high heat of frying, you don’t necessarily have to worry about your health just because it’s fried.
In a large mixing bowl, stir the baking mix, poultry seasoning, and salt together so that the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout the flour. In the other mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs until the yolk and white are combined.
Rinse off the chicken breasts and cut them lengthwise into 1 to 2 inch thick strips, then drop them into the egg mixture. Once the chicken is covered in egg, toss each piece around in the mixing bowl of flour, turning it to cover all sides evenly. Now you can lay the chicken strips in the hot pan of oil. Carefully please; don’t burn yourself. You will know the oil is ready if you place a pea sized amount of the breading from the chicken fingers in the oil and it immediately starts sizzling.
Fry the chicken strips on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on both sides, turning them over when the breading starts to change colors. The chicken is done when the breading is crispy and golden brown on all sides and has fried for at least 8 to 10 minutes.
Drain the chicken strips on a platter covered in paper towels, then serve and enjoy when they are cool enough to pick up with your fingers without burning yourself. This recipe makes enough for a family of 4 to have about 3 strips each. You can always double the recipe if you need more food for a big family gathering or potluck.
