Chicken with Pepper Sauce

My parents are great cooks and I love to remember childhood favorites. My mom’s spaghetti was so smooth and herb-filled. Haha, that reminds me of something funny. Speaking of spaghetti, I used to order spaghetti at every restaurant we went to when I was younger. It was always my favorite thing to try everywhere.

Anyhow, I love to remake and put my own spin on family recipes and this is one of them. Dad’s Chicken Dinner has been a favorite since I can remember and my recipe is very close and the taste is dead on. It’s also Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free. So good!

Chicken with Pepper Sauce

Chicken:Chicken with Pepper Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced in half to thin them out and in half again for portions the size of your palm
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Gluten-Free Italian breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper

Add oil to a medium-sized skillet pan on medium heat. Add the eggs to one bowl and scramble them. Add the breadcrumbs to the other bowl and a dash of salt and pepper. Dip both sides of each piece of chicken into the egg and then coat them in breadcrumbs. Add the chicken to the skillet. Cook until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside. Use the same pan to prepare the sauce.

Pepper Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch (I use this for everything (to thicken.) It’s well worth the buy=)

    2 cups Almond Milk

  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons Gluten-Free Italian breadcrumbs (I use the rest of the breadcrumbs leftover from breading the chicken.)

In the same pan you cooked the chicken, add the oil and sprinkle the tapioca starch in. Use a whisk and stir. Add the breadcrumbs, pepper and stir. Finish by adding in the Almond Milk and whisking to combine. Carefully simmer and warm the sauce to thicken.


  • prepare gluten-free, soy-free noodles to preference

(I used spaghetti noodles and broke them three times. They were the only noodles I had.)

Traditionally my Dad made it with egg noodles and while I don’t eat those anymore, I do still like this chicken dinner with noodles. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! What is your favorite way to have chicken?
