  • large frying pan
  • sharp knife
  • small mixing bowl
  • tongs



  • Slice chicken breast into 1 inch chunks.
  • Combine arrowroot flour, paprika, salt and onion powder in a small bowl.
  • Add coconut oil to a large frying pan until it’s about 1/8 inch deep. Heat pan over medium-high heat.
  • One-by-one, toss the chicken pieces in the flour mixture until fully coated.
  • Add chicken to the heated frying pan using tongs. Fry until golden brown on each side and cooked through the center. I usually pull one out and cut it down the middle to check.
  • Serve with ketchup or ranch dressing.
