My family’s favorite “breaded” Paleo Chicken Cutlets that are super easy, quick, and just as good as the original.  Whole30 compliant and kid friendly – you can put these on you “go-to” dinner list!

I’ll begin today’s post with a true-chicken-cutlet-story from my childhood.  Or adolescence?  I can’t remember anymore.  Anyhow, my mom – who worked full time++ while I was growing up (and still does, actually) – set a goal at some point to cook dinner once per week.

I think it was Saturdays, might have been Sundays.  Nope, Sunday was family meeting day, Saturday dinner day.  So, anyway…

Crispy "breaded" Paleo Chicken Cutlets that are super easy and just as good as the original. Whole30 compliant, kid friendly!

  • 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, thin sliced or pounded to 1/2" thickness
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour*
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour*
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning blend <--My favorite
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • dash red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil + 2 tbsp ghee for frying**


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium shallow bowl (you will dredge the cutlets in the mixture)
  2. Have your whisked egg in a shallow bowl, heat a large, heavy, deep skillet over medium heat and add 3 tbsp total of cooking fat (a combination of ghee and coconut oil, or all coconut.) Depending on the size of your skillet, you might have to fry these in 2 batches, so have additional cooking fat ready in case you need more.
  3. Once the skillet it preheated (you can see if a drop of the dry mixture sizzles), dip one cutlet in the egg, shaking off excess, then coat in the dry mixture, shaking off excess. Place the chicken in the pan, then repeat the process for each piece of chicken.
  4. Cook on one side until medium-golden brown (2 minutes) and crisp, then carefully turn over the chicken with tongs and cook the second side until golden brown and juices run clear, about 2 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken***
  5. Carefully remove chicken cutlets from skillet with tongs and place on a paper-towel lined plate to absorb excess grease. Serve hot with baked fries, sweet potatoes, or butternut squash fries! Enjoy!
