Spicy Chicken Cutlets (Paleo + Whole30)

These crispy Spicy Chicken Cutlets have a ton of flavor including garlic, smoked paprika and chipotle chili powder.  They are simple to make and reheat great if making them as part of your meal prep. I love serving these alongside a big scoop of guacamole and some roasted sweet potatoes. \



  • 2 eggs
  • 1¼ cup hazelnut flour (or sub almond flour)
  • ⅓ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 2 lbs thin boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place baking rack over it. Drizzle rack with avocado oil.
  • Whisk egg into a small bowl.
  • In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients.
  • To batter chicken, start by dredging a piece in egg, letting the access run off.
  • Then coat with the flour mixture and place on baking sheet.
  • Continue to batter until all chicken is coated.
  • Drizzle avocado oil over chicken on baking rack.
  • Baked for about 45 minutes flipping halfway through, or until cooked and browned.



  • If frying heat 3-4 tbsp of avocado oil oil in a frying pan.  Once hot add chicken to the pan browning each side and cook through.  Cook chicken in single layer batches and add more avocado oil as needed.
