  • 5 to 6 chicken breasts or tenders thinly sliced
  • 1 cup paleo panko bread crumbs (see below how to make it from paleo bread)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


To Make Paleo Panko Breadcrumbs

  • Take one to two loaves of paleo bread and put it in a food process or blender. Chop until it is a ground consistency. I make my own paleo bread. You can use any kind of paleo bread - homemade or store bought.
  • Spread the bread crumbs on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool.

To Make Paleo Oven Fried Chicken

  • Crack two eggs into a bowl and whisk.
  • Near the bow, place a plate and pour the paleo panko bread crumbs (that you just made) on the plate and spread them out on the plate.
  • Take a thinly sliced chicken breast, dip it in the eggs making sure it is fully saturated.
  • Then place it on the plate with the bread crumbs. Coat both sides of the chicken breast, flipping it several times in the bread crumbs.
  • Use a meat pounder to push the bread crumbs into the chicken breast.
  • Grease a cookie sheet or glass pan with a little olive oil.
  • Place the chicken breast on the pan and repeat these steps for all the slices of chicken breasts.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. After 15 minutes, turn over the chicken breasts.


You may need to increase or decrease the cooking time depending on the thickness of your chicken breast slices.
