Ingredients

For Chicken

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup super fine blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

For Coleslaw

  • 4 cups shredded coleslaw mix
  • 3 tbsp Paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

For Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp Paleo mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  • Stir together ingredients for dipping sauce and divide between 4 small sauce cups. Refrigerate until serving. To make coleslaw, stir together mayonnaise, honey, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add coleslaw mix and stir well to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • Slice chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces and blot dry with a paper towel. Add beaten egg to a small shallow bowl and stir together almond flour, sea salt, garlic, sea salt and pepper in a separate shallow bowl. Dunk pieces of chicken in egg, shaking off excess then dredge in the almond flour mixture all sides and set onto a parchment paper lined tray.
  • Heat air fryer to 380ºF and place chicken in the basket in a single layer. Air fry for 6 minutes. Shake basket and air fry an additional 6 minutes. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  • Divide coleslaw between 4 teal (1 cup) MPOF container compartments and divide popcorn chicken between the other 4 (2 cups) compartments. Place a cup of dipping sauce next to the chicken.
