How To Prepare Lower-Carb Popcorn Chicken with Summer Salad ?


Preparation time: 35 mins

Cooking time: 7 mins

Serving: 3


  Popcorn chicken

  • 1½ pounds chicken breasts, cut into thumb-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoon dried rosemary


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit, lemon or orange juice
  • 1½ tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  Summer Salad

  • 1 bundle thick asparagus, chopped
  • 2 cups mâche rosettes
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 10-15 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 large sweet orange, peeled and thinly sliced into circles
  • 1 large ripe avocado, cut into thin slices
  • Green onion, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped (optional)


  1. Combine the coconut milk and hot sauce in a zip-top plastic bag. Add the chicken pieces and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, Parmesan, whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs, and dried rosemary. Dip the chicken pieces into the flour mixture to coat, then place them on a baking sheet or baking wire rack (preferred). Bake for 15-18, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, citrus juice, mustard and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
  5. Bring a pot of water to a boil and prepare an ice bath. Cook the asparagus for 2 to 3 minutes, then immediately place the cooked asparagus into the ice bath to cool.
  6. In a large bowl, toss together the asparagus, mâche, arugula, tomatoes and orange slices. Pour in some of the dressing and lightly toss.
  7. Place the salad on a large platter, top with the avocado slices and popcorn chicken. Garnish with the green onion, a few turns of black pepper and cilantro.
