Ingredient Substitutes and FAQs

Can I substitute almond or coconut flour for the whey protein isolate?

Secondly, whey protein successfully binds all the breading ingredients together better than any other flour and it will not lose any of the batter while frying.

But yes you can use almond or coconut flour to bread the egg dipped chicken, you can even use a combination of peanut flour and sesame flour (take 2 tablespoons each)
