Recipe by James Barry

Sixteen plus years in the culinary field, James started as a private chef, having cooked for celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Mariska Hargitay, George Clooney, Gerard Butler, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Barbra Streisand, and John Cusack.

We recommend using either Pluck Zesty GarlicAll-Purpose or Spicy for this recipe.


Step 1

Place a wire rack on a baking tray.

Step 2

Whisk eggs together in a small bowl (or whisk buttermilk and egg). Add the chicken pieces and allow to soak for a minute or two.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, add the flour and seasonings. Mix until blended. Dip chicken pieces in the four, coating well. Ensure the flour coats the entire piece of chicken. If you want a thicker coat of batter, repeat the dredging process of egg to flour mix.

Step 4

In a small pot, add the coconut oil and heat until hot but not smoking. Add the battered chicken a few pieces at a time. The oil should cover the chicken fully or minimum half. If not fully covered, you'll need to brown each side a minute or two at a time.

Step 5

Using tongs, remove the fried chicken from the pot and place on the wired tray. If the chicken was not fully cooked during the frying process, you can place the tray/pan with the chicken on it into a 400º F oven to cook further.

Step 6

Add your favorite sauce and enjoy!


1 pound Boneless Chicken (skin on or off), chopped into bite size pieces

1 cup Garbanzo flour

2 Eggs (or alternatively, 1 egg and 1/2 cup buttermilk)

1-2 cup Coconut Oil

1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt

1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano (optional)

1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme (optional)

1 teaspoon Pluck seasoning
