Mexican Spiced Chicken
This quick and easy Mexican Inspired Crispy Chicken Recipe makes a delightful dinner option and is sure to become a family favorite in no time. The magic begins with a delightful coating that adds a perfect crunch to the chicken. A flavorful blend of cassava flour, almond flour, cumin, oregano, coriander, chili powder, and garlic powder adds a hint of Mexican spice. The skillet-frying technique ensures that the chicken retains its juiciness while developing that irresistible crispy crust. Serving suggestions are limitless to create a truly fiesta-like experience. Pair this Mexican Spiced Chicken with aromatic rice or a low-carb cauliflower rice (I had a mixture of both). Add some warmed corn or beans for a hearty touch, and top it off with pico de gallo or avocado and a splash of lime juice to elevate the flavors even further.

Instructions

1. Lightly pound chicken breasts to about the same thickness (even thickness = even cooking). Season with salt on both sides.

2. In a shallow bowl, use a fork to whisk together egg and water.

3. In a separate shallow bowl, combine cassava flour, almond flour, cumin, oregano, coriander, chili powder and garlic powder.

4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
5. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture on both sides, then dredge in the flour mixture on both sides, pressing lightly down so the flour sticks.

6. Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side (time varies depending on the thickness of the chicken), the internal temperature should read at least 165F (74C).

7. Serve with rice / cauliflower rice , some warmed corn / beans, pico de gallo and a splash of lime juice or any Mexican-inspired sides.
