Recipe type: Gluten Free / Dairy Free
Yield: 6-8 Servings


  • 2 lbs. Organic Chicken Breast – Each breast cut in half
  • ½ – ¾ Cup Organic Pickle Juice (I used Nature’s Promise Organic Pickles – drain juice)
  • ½ Cup Water (for marinade)
  • ½ Cup Non-Dairy Milk (for dredging chicken)
  • 2 Large Organic Eggs
  • Organic Canola Oil For Frying – Enough to submerge ¼ – ½ of chicken (likely 2-3 cups)
  • Gluten Free Buns (I used BFree Brand)
  • Optional Toppings: Pickle / Lettuce / Tomato / Vegennaise

Breading Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Cassava Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Organic Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper (can use less if don’t want spicy)
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Cayenne Powder (do less or more depending on spice preference)


  1. In a large Ziploc bag combine pickle juice and ½ cup water.
  2. Optional: Pound chicken breasts so all equal in size. (can use separate Ziploc bag and tenderizer tool)
  3. Add chicken to pickle juice/water mixture and let marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
  4. While waiting, combine all breading ingredients to another large bowl. Mix with whisk until combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, add the eggs and milk – whisk together.
  6. Once chicken is done marinating, start warming up oil to about 350 degrees.
  7. Take marinated chicken and submerge into the egg/milk mixture.
  8. Then roll chicken into breading/flour mixture until completely coated. Then dip chicken back in (double-dip) egg/milk mixture and then into the flour mixture again. This is the trick to the recipe! 😊
  9. Be sure the oil is ready for frying before adding chicken to pan. (do the *water test to make sure sizzles)
  10. Place breaded chicken into hot oil and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side – getting to a golden color.
  11. Place chicken on paper towel lined plate. Let sit at least 5 minutes before serving.
  12. Suggestions: Serve with a leafy green salad/fresh steamed broccoli/kale chips
    Sandwich options: Sliced tomato/slice onion/leafy green lettuce/light mayo (or vegennaise)/cheese/pickles/jalapeno peppers/roasted peppers
    *Water test – add a drop of water into pan – oil should sizzle slightly.

*Try and use all organic ingredients if possible.
