TigerNut flour has become a staple in my kitchen. It's made from Organic Gemini's TigerNuts, which are actually tubers, so they aren't really nuts at all, making it a great substitute for almond flour, which makes paleo breading easy. It's an ancient food thats full of fiber, and has a very slightly sweet, nutty flavor. I figured the taste and texture would lend itself wonderfully to breading some chicken for a homestyle favorite: fried chicken.
For this simple recipe, you'll need:
2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Organic Gemini's TigerNut Flour
1/2 tsp Real Salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp ghee (I use Tin Star Foods or Pure Indian!)
First, chop chicken into bite size pieces, and pat dry.
Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl, then toss in chicken to lightly coat, and set them aside in another bowl.
Next, whisk an egg in a separate bowl, and handful at a time, dip the chicken bites into the egg to coat. After coating a handful, dip it back into the flour mix, then set out on a sheet of parchment paper on a baking pan.
When you have finished coating all your chicken, bake for 22 minutes at 450, flipping once through cooking, until chicken is cooked through.
Remove from heat and if desired, pan fry finish to give them an extra crisp for a few minutes over med-high heat in some ghee. I like to sprinkle a little extra salt during this part.
Let cool slightly, and serve.
