Our healthy version of golden, crisp crumbed chicken!

The gluten free friendly crumb is made with a combination of almond meal and gluten free flour. For this recipe we used cauliflower flour for our gluten free flour mix! Yes, that’s right, cauliflower flour.

What is Cauliflower Flour?

A new kid on the block, cauliflower flour is an allergy friendly, gluten free, wheat free flour mix made with cauliflower.
You can use cauliflower flour one for one for flour replacement.  We’ve been loving experimenting with the PomPom Paddock Cauliflower flour bespoke flour to make a gluten free pizza base and these delicious crumbed chicken strips.

You can buy PomPom Paddock Cauliflower online or see their website for a list of stockists.


Dietary Requirements:

Gluten free crumbed chicken

How to serve:

Enjoy as dippers with your favourite dipping sauce or serve with your favourite sides. We love these served with a side salad and homemade baked sweet potato chips.

You can also make these the star of a homemade burger with aioli sauce. Yum!

The kids love these served with sugar free tomato sauce.
