Celina Jean’s Gluten Free Organic Fried Chicken

Now you know when I was turned on to this recipe by Celina  “The Food Smarty”, my eyes got REALLY big. I mean how much more “Win Win Win” could you possibly get? Fried Chicken (check!),  Gluten Free (double check!!), cooked with healthy ingredients (TRIPLE CHECK!!!). Now this is not a “diet” food per se. This is a healthy-er-ish version of a very unhealthy food that everyone loves and is really hard to give up :-) For those of us on weight loss journeys, isn’t it infuriating to know people that can go to KFC and eat a bucket of fried chicken and not gain a pound, but if you nibble on a chicken strip you gain 3?  Now we have a healthier alternative!

Here are the ingredients:

4 organic eggs*
1 cup garbonzo flour
1 cup tapioca flour
½ cup brown rice flour
Organic coconut oil
Spices and salt (optional)
Bone in split chicken breasts and legs
* May substitute eggs for ¼ cup ground flaxseed + ¾ cup water

Recipe:
– Whisk 4 eggs in a large bowl
– In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
– Dip chicken in eggs, then into the dry mixture (repeat optional)
– Make sure to heat your coconut to a sufficient heat before adding chicken. After the 2nd batch, you’ll probably need to bring the temperature down as the oil will get too hot.

Celine definitely has a passion for nutrition and you can find her at the following places on the interwebs:

If you want to add to the recipe section (or know of a great recipe video you would like to see hi-lighted) just remember the 3 commandments for the BigManShrinking.com  recipe section:

1) It Has To Be Relatively Healthy – No excessive salt, sugar, processed refined ingredients, high fat, etc.etc. Organic alternatives preferred.

2) It Has To Be Easy To Make…because my non-cooking self is going to give it a try :-)

3) It Can Focus On Any Dietary Approach – Low Carb, Low Calorie, Vegan, Vegetarian, Raw, etc. etc.

Try it out and let me know your results. Better still, please let The Food Smarty know how much you appreciated her recipe.

 

To Your Success On The Journey!

  1. why would you want to make the crust of fried chicken vegan?

  2. Now that looked “FINGER LICKIN’ GOOD” Always ready to try a new chicken recipe, and this one is lookin’ good for sunday’s dinner. I’ll post feedback after sunday and let you know how it went…..

  3. VEGAN IS THE BEST WAY TO BE!

  4. ZarajosyGallinejas

    I believe that virgin olive oil is much better than coconut, isn´t it? By the way, vegans don´t eat eggs

  5. dorinioanaalexandra

    @gingowitch maybe your ”best”, not mine or many others, we the rest love our delicious milk, yogurt and eggs

  6. @dorinioanaalexandra you’re hot, where do you live? i’ve been vegan for a while now, and i feel healthy and fluid and energetic.

  7. @edmondov hell no, the next time i listen to a stoopid scientist will be never – scientists r stoopid and knowingly and willingly tell lies in order to harm people. they are the priests of satan and their riitual is to see how much harm they can do without getting caught, kind of like circumcised jews.

  8. I’ve seen enough……. I appreciate her efforts, but this is complete bullshit. I ask you where do you buy these ingredients?. Go to your local grocer and spend the cash for this stuff…complete bullshit. This is a stupid useless non-cost effective recipe. If you’re gonna eat fried chicken, eat the real thing. Just don’t eat it every damn day.

  9. make this recipe VEGAN??!?!?! …real smart, smartie

  10. InAProverbialSense

    @Gnostic279 Vegetarians eat eggs. Vegans do not. I’m vegan, I should know.

  11. Chicken coated in a egg wash with regular salt, pepper and flour fried in Crisco oil with mashed potatoes and gravy made from the chicken drippings and big bowl of butter beans cooked in real butter with home made buttermilk biscuits, now that is an artery clogging high cholesterol high blood pressure meal. I have eaten this for 30 years every Sunday and if I die tomorrow I will die a well feed happy man.

  12. this video has forced my hand. TO KFC MY BRETHREN!

  13. 6:55 Damn right i’ll need a paper bag.

  14. @InAProverbialSense TY I stand corrected. lol I have tried and tried to get that straight. Thought I had it and I was wrong again. It’s just counter intuitive. What is vegan but a made up word. Vegatarian should mean someone who eats only veggies. Well, it does in my mind anyway.

  15. Great video, FUCK KFC!

  16. What an awesome recipe. Well Done! You deserve the compliment even if I did feel a twinge of jealousy when I saw it. Your video has 10x’s the number of views, (in one day) that my gluten free oven fried chicken vid has in three weeks. Alas, I was forced to face down the green monster understanding that jealously should have no place in my heart. Love your channel, I’ve subbed.

  17. @bluemoongirl484 after watching her videos I’m not sure the name food smarty is the best XD OH well, means well I suppose.

  18. Although she seems ditzy, this was actually very good. I used grapeseed oil because coconut oil burns too fast. I used a cast iron skillet and it cooked perfectly.

  19. @bluemoongirl484 Yes but it might also be a situation where you made the chicken and realized you forgot the eggs or didn’t have any. She simply offered a way to make the breading without useing eggs. Some people eat chicken but don’t eat eggs.

  20. psychetruth, you could have fried that chicken another 2-3 minutes for my taste! Looks good, though!

  21. @bluemoongirl484 The breading could be used on eggplant parmesian or other veggie alternatives, in which case you might want a vegan alternative, and some meat-eaters may not eat eggs.

  32. [..YouTube..] It’s not what you eat but how much you’re eating. What’s unhealthy is all that damn batter on the chicken. You’re eating flour and egg with that batter. Just fry the chicken in it’s own skin. It will allow the chicken to stay moist and grease less. You need more oil and it needs to cook on a high heat so it won’t be greasy. All that stuff you just did and you made it more “unhealthy” buy soaking it in flour and eggs…….lol everybody wanna be somebody, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

  58. [..YouTube..] During all the video, you’re talking about smart cooking etc, organic food… Just so you know; there is no such thing as smart cooking, just dumb people. As always, people blame the food instead of blaming habits. And for god sake’s, HEALTHY fried chicken? Please, I’d rather go at Burger King for a salad…

  60. [..YouTube..] I really liked this recipe. I love fried chicken and there were a lot of good tips overall. That chicken definitely did look delicious. The one thing that did bother me was when Celina said this could be Vegan if you made some substitutions, but even after those substitutions totally wouldn’t be vegan with the chicken. Right?Fried Seitan could be interesting, if it was made like chicken fried chicken. Yum!!!Still, overall a really good video. :)

  70. … most chickens ARE vegetarians, so just use the recipe above ;)

  71. I think baking would be even healthier.

  72. hahahahahaha….nice one. thanks :)

  73. Wow! NEVER! EVER! Use Watertown test the heat of your cooking oil. That’s a disaster waiting to happen.

  74. I did appreciate this video. Just a few things to the commentators. A lot of you are criticizing the author for suggesting that you can replace flaxseed for the eggs which would then make the dish “vegan”. Well I believe what she meant for those of you who are “egg sensitive”, should moderate the receipe by using flaxseed instead off eggs in the batter. I personally would never fry chicken in coconut oil. It just burns too easily. I’ve just been oven frying lately, and it taste just like FRIED!

  75. Searching for healthy cooklng oils, i have found that coconut oil is the worst.

  76. I do hope she meant egg-free…

  77. Hello there, have you tried out “Belly Fat Blaze” (do a Google search for it)? On their website you will find a useful free video. It made it possible for Lyn to reduce her belly fat. It may work for you also…

  78. there’s no oil that will do you good.. oil is not a nature’s food how much ever virgin it is.. we see olives, coconuts and sunflower seeds in nature.. we don’t see olive, coconut and sunflower oil bottles flowering in the tree.. so there’s some extraction and/or refinement.. your best bet is to stay away from oil and rather grab coconut instead for fat..and of all the oils, coconut will do you least harm.. searching will advocate only canola oil, thats marketing.. dont search, but study

  79. Looks good, check my gluten free fried chicken recipe on my channel.

  80. there is always lard, a stable fat for frying that helps avoid the rancidity from oils. it’s a more traditional way to fry found in many traditional diets rendered down from pigs on healthy diets.

  81. Tried it. Loved it! So did the gluten eating tribe I live with. Thank you so much for this coating blend!!

  82. I cook mine the same way yummy

  83. I have exactly the same plates. Nice color :-)

  84. I don’t think she meant “vegan” fried chicken.. that would be an oxymoron, lol!

  86. Yeah, she should have made it a little more clear she was *just* talking about the breading. I figured that must be what was meant though.
