Tofu/Chicken Gluten-Free Schnitzel


  • 4 (4oz) chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness

  • vegan option-  tofu cut  into strips

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 cup olive oil or ghee, for frying

  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Set up a breading station with 3 shallow dishes - almond flour in one, beaten eggs in the second, and a wire rack or clean plate.

  2. Season the chicken breasts/tofu strips with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.

  3. Dredge the chicken/tofu in the almond flour to coat both sides. Dip in the egg, allowing any excess to drip off. Then place on the wire rack.

  4. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of olive oil or ghee over medium-high heat.

  5. When oil is shimmering, add 2 or 3 chicken breasts/tofu strips and fry for 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.

  6. Transfer the fried schnitzels to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining chicken/tofu.

  7. Serve the gluten-free schnitzels warm with lemon wedges. Enjoy over a salad or with roasted vegetables.
