RECIPE: Fried chicken with garlic powder (nightshade free)


When I went to make fried chicken tonight, I realized I could no longer use any of the spices I usually used because they contain paprika or some other red pepper.  argh!  So, I tried this on a whim.  Turned out okay, but a little bland – I’ll have to look for another spice to add to it to give it more flavor:

Bone-in chicken parts (whichever parts you like best)
Almond meal.  It’s crushed almonds. I buy this from the health food store – it’s gluten free, but it’s nuts, so watch out if you have nut allergies.
Garlic powder
Olive oil

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
In an oven safe pan, or dish, pour some oil into the bottom and spread it so that it covers the bottom.  You want your chicken pieces sitting in oil, but not drowning!
Pour some almond meal into a large bowl.
One by one, grab a chicken piece and rub it around in the almond meal so that the meal covers the chicken piece on both sides.
Sprinkle salt over the bottom, and the top, of the chicken piece.
Sprinkle garlic powder over the top of the chicken piece.
Place the chicken piece SKIN SIDE DOWN in the oil in the pan.
Repeat for each piece.
When all of the chicken is in the pan, put the pan in the oven.
Cook for 1/2 hour.
Turn over the chicken pieces.
Cook another 1/2 hour or until done.  You’ll want to keep an eye on the chicken when it gets close to done time as the almond meal might burn a bit if cooked too long.
