  • 1 lb chicken tenders
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 TBS flour
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil


  1. In a medium pan, heat coconut oil over medium heat.

  2. In a medium sized bowl, crack eggs and set to the side.

  3. Pour parmesan cheese into a food processor and blend until it is very fine. Place the cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley, salt, pepper and flour in a medium bowl. Stir to combine.

  4. Working with one strip of chicken at a time, dunk it in the egg. Hold the chicken over the bowl and allow the excess egg to drip off. Place the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture and press the chicken into it. Flip the chicken and press it into the breadcrumbs so each side is coated.

  5. Place the chicken in the hot oil and fry on each side for 4-6 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken from the pan once it's done cooking, and place on a paper towel on a plate.

  6. Serve with your favorite sauce, pesto, or on top of a salad. Mangia!
