Looks something like this


Gosh, I am no good at recipe titles! For those of you who do, please help!!!! Post a suggestion in “comments”.

I used this recipe long ago, when I first started paleo and really enjoyed it with tilapia, as well as with chicken. It makes basically breaded filets that are crispy and very tasty!

This recipe is derived from one available on paleoplan.com, but includes my modifications:



This recipe feeds 2-3 people, but can easily be adjusted to serve more.

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, OR white fish filets (such as tilapia)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, OR 1/4 cup coconut flour and 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I use kosher and way more than 1/4 tsp, but my family is BIG on flavor! This recipe is VERY mild, so add as much s & p as you like)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 -4 Tbs coconut oil (Use as much needed to thoroughly fry the filet and moisten the breading.)


  1. Mix flour, shredded coconut, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Beat egg in separate bowl.
  3. Dip chicken breast in egg and roll in dry mixture.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and add coconut oil when hot.
  5. Pan fry chicken until fully cooked.

This is so delicious and so very quick, like I said, especially if you are frying fish. This goes well with a fruit and/or salad too!

    I’ve been researching paleo diets and have found your post to very informative on the subject. What do you think of these Paleo Diet Recipies? Would they be safe for someone just starting out on the diet and could there be any side effects?
