  • To coat the chicken, do this one piece at a time. You can do this in batches as you will be baking the chicken most likely in tow batches. Dredge each individual piece of chicken, one at a time, in the flour bowl and shake off the loose flour. Then drag that piece of chicken into the egg (allow excess to drip off) and then into the bread crumbs. You may need to pat or press the crumbs into the chicken.
  • Bake the chicken for done- 12-15 minutes. The chicken should reach 165 degrees and be no longer pink. Repeat the process until all of your chicken is done

Recipe Notes

See Post For Details.
As mentioned, you can buy low carb bread crumb alternatives online. Another option would be to make your own low carb bread crumbs using low carb bread by toasting the bread on a low heat (120 for 35-40 minutes) until hard and then grinding them up by hand or in a blender or food processor.
Also, you will also need a flour alternative for this recipe.
You can find low carb flour (not baking mix)choices online. I like to use Carbalose low carbohydrate flourfor my low carb baking.
