Low Carbohydrate Gluten Free Recipe

I've been following a semi low carb diet for three months now and I'm always experimenting in the kitchen creating new dishes. Coconut chicken is made in a similar way that you'd make traditional breaded chicken expect I didn't use any bread crumbs.

Included below is a recipe for a Walnut Spring Mix Cabbage Salad.

Ingredients Needed for This Recipe

  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened )
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 Tbs. of Hosin Sauce
  • 2-3 pounds of boneless chicken breasts defrosted

Making Your Own Almond Flour or Almond Meal

All you need to make your own almond flour is a coffee grinder and the shelled almonds. Place the almonds (blanched or unblanched) into the coffee grinder and pulse a few times.

A Frugal Aluminum Tin Foil Tip

I used to buy the aluminum foil that was non-stick, and then one day I was thinking about it and thought why can't I just use regular tin foil and spray it myself with olive oil or vegetable oil cooking spray. It will save money and probably work just as well. It works great and I no longer buy the non-stick tin foil.

Instructions for Making Coconut Chicken Breasts

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum tin foil and spray the tin foil with olive or vegetable cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl mix together the almond flour and coconut. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl mix and whisk together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, and 2 Tbs. of Hoisin sauce.
  5. If the chicken breasts are really thick slice them diagonally.
  6. Dip the chicken breasts first into the egg mixture and then into the coconut mixture making sure they are well coated.
  7. Place each chicken breast onto the baking sheet.
  8. Pop the chicken breasts into the oven for 40 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let the chicken breasts sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  10. With the chicken I served Thai stir fry vegetables, and a walnut spring mix cabbage salad.

      I love coconut shrimp so I'm sure I would love coconut chicken too. I would have to make it just for me and my oldest daughter, we are the only ones in the family that like coconut. I also love the salad that you show to go with it. Thanks for sharing these recipes. I love new recipes.

I've been trying to minimize our consumption of carbs that have little or no nutrition value, and I love both coconut and almond flour (and pineapple, which I'll probably broil and serve on the side), so this is right up our alley.

      That's great news Susan. I knew a lot of the benefits of almonds which is why I usually eat a handful daily.....but I just wondered if they added or took away a lot of the benefits when they turned it into flour. I normally try to use wheat flour as much as possible anyway. Thank you so much for clearing this up as I may start trying to use almond flour now.

      See? Your hub made a difference in my diet, and for that I thank you.

      Kasman,

      Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E and magnesium, and a good source of protein and fibre. Almond four is ground almonds and you'd get the same benefits as if you were eating whole almonds. Eating almonds regularly can help to reduce cholesterol. In one cup of ground almonds or almond flour vitamins and minerals include; Vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin B6, panthothenic acid, calcium iorn magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, maganese and selenium. Almond flour is a gluten free flour. Overall almond flour is a much healthier choice than white :)

      Hi Susan,

      Your recipes sound great and I loved the tip about saving money by not purchasing the non-stick aluminum foil and just using Pam or a similar spray on the regular aluminum foil. Thanks!

      I would definitely not feel like I'm dieting while eating this dish! We have flirted off and on with low carb cooking, so I look forward to trying this. I like your use of almond flour and coconut for crispiness. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

      Coconut shrimp is one of my all-time favorites, Susan, so I know I will enjoy this coconut chicken recipe. Thanks for this treat and the salad recipe as well. 'Kun jai dee jang.'

      Indian Chef, Basically I cut out rice, potatoes, bread and pasta from my diet. I won't lie as every once in a while I do cheat. If I'm absolutely dying for one of these I'll choose sweet potatoes, a low carb bread, and only brown rice or whole wheat pasta. I started the diet back in the middle of February and to date I've lost 23 pounds.

      This sounds like such a wonderful recipe. And it's really great how it wasn't just the coconut chicken breast recipe that you provided but you also added the recipe for the salad so it's really like having a full meal. Your images are great and the ones of the finished food really make them look tasty and delicious.
