  • 8 chicken pieces skins removed (I buy whole legs because they are cheaper and have them rip off the skins and cut the leg and thigh apart for me at the store)
  • 1 1/2 cup 'buttermilk' any unsweetened milk of choice set side for a few minutes with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar to sour it. I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk, only 50 calories a cup!
  • 1 tablespoon gluten free Worcestershire French's is gluten free too!
  • Tabasco optional
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons salt-free Cajun seasoning I use a salt-free version in the bulk food section. If you have something else, please be sure and check if there is salt, if so, omit the extra salt below, and 1/2 the amount of Cajun seasoning. If you have some chili powder to compensate for removing the additional Cajun seasoning, that should balance the flavor
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano or thyme


  1. Brine the chicken for at least 2 hours or more in the: 'buttermilk', Worcestershire, and Tabasco.
  2. Combine all the breading ingredients, and remove the pieces from the brine, dredging each piece and pressing down for a thorough coating.
  3. Place coated pieces on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Lightly spray the top of each piece with cooking spray so that the breading is lightly moist.
  5. Bake in 400 degree oven for 45-60 minutes until crispy and golden brown (I like mine extra crispy so sometimes leave it in a bit longer!)
