This recipe is as good or better than my 'gluten-full' recipe. Even my pickiest child ate this fried chicken. Tastes great with mashed potatoes and salad. You can use chicken breasts or chicken tenders.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Combine flour, powdered buttermilk, paprika, celery salt, white pepper, xanthan gum, baking soda, and cayenne pepper together in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag; shake to mix well. Place chicken in bag, seal the bag, and shake until each piece is coated in flour mixture.

  • Working in batches, drop coated chicken into preheated oil and cook, turning once, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer cooked chicken to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
