1. Slice chicken breasts into small fillets or use mini fillets

2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.

3. In a separate bowl whisk the egg.

4. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan.

5. Dip the chicken pieces one by one into the egg & then coat in the dry mixture.

6. Place in the frying pan and cook on a low heat so the chicken doesn’t dry out.

7. Cook until golden on both sides and chicken is cooked through.

8. Served with a salad as per the picture shown, or you could serve with potato or sweet potato wedges for a classic goujons & chips style meal 🙂 #CheatClean
