  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1.5 lbs chicken breasts*
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • cup blanched almond flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 2 lemons 1 for juicing, one for garnish
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup capers
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Beat the egg in another shallow dish. Place side by side near the stove. Heat 2 tbsp of your oil over medium high heat in a large cast iron skillet. Meanwhile, dip your butterflied/sliced chicken breasts first in the egg, then dredge them in the flour mixture.
  • Add to the chicken to the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your chicken breasts. (I did two chicken pieces at a time, removed them, then added 2 more tbsp of olive for the 2nd batch of chicken). Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add ghee to the empty hot pan and scrape up any brown bits as it melts. Add in chicken broth, capers, the juice from one lemon, and the arrowroot powder/water mixture. Bring to a boil and reduce heat - let it simmer for about 3-5 mins. Add chicken back to the pan and keep on low until you're ready to serve. Enjoy!


*I cut two large chicken breasts in half to form 4 thinner breasts, and pounded them until they were of even thickness.
