Servings 8 Servings


  • 2 Chicken Breasts Quartered
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/4 Cup Water 2 oz
  • 3/4 Cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour 4 oz Fine Grind
  • 1 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese 2 oz
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cloves Clove Garlic Pressed
  • Oil For Frying
  • Mozzarella Cheese To Top


  • Cut the chicken breasts in half length-ways, then in half again width-ways. Pound each piece slightly thinner to tenderize and create uniformity in thickness, so the chicken cooks evenly.
  • In one bowl combine the tapioca flour, water, egg, salt and garlic. Mix well to remove any clumps of flour.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour and parmesan cheese. Use your fingers the blend the two ingredients and break up the grated cheese into smaller pieces.
  • Dip the prepared chicken into the tapioca batter, then into the almond mixture to coat.
  • Preheat a skillet with 1/4 inch of oil. Test the temperature of the oil by placing a piece of the almond flour in the pan. If the four begins to fry, the oil is ready. Place the breaded chicken into the pan and brown on both sides.
  • Remove from heat and pour off excess oil.
  • Top with Pomi Crushed tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Then place the skillet in the oven to melt the cheese. Remove from the oven before the cheese burns.
