Ingredients

  • 8 chicken thighs with skin on and bone in
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp butter preferably grass-fed

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In a pie plate or shallow, medium-sized bowl, place the coconut flour, almond flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. On a large plate, place the chicken thighs and dry them off with a paper towel.
  4. Put the butter in a 9x13 baking dish and then place the dish on the middle rack of the oven.
  5. When the butter has melted, remove the baking dish from the oven, and place on the stove or other heat-proof area.
  6. Dip the chicken into the breading on both sides and place each piece, skin side down, onto the buttery baking dish.
  7. Place the dish on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. After 30 minutes, flip the chicken and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven, cut into the thickest part of the chicken to make sure it is cooked through, and serve hot.

Recipe Notes

Both coconut flour and almond flour can be found at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and similar stores. When it comes to grass-fed butter, I like Kerrygold and find it to be much less expensive at Costco and Trader Joe’s.
