Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1” pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • ¾ cup pickle juice (dye-free)
  • 1½ cups spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Place egg, milk and pickle juice in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken pieces, cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Overnight is best.
  2. After the chicken is done marinating, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
  4. Drain the liquid from the chicken and dredge the pieces in the flour mixture until fully coated.
  5. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, providing space in between each piece. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, if desired.
