Did anyone else obsess over the Burger King chicken fries?! I still remember when they first came out and ordering them for the first time. I am shook over how good these turned out and the fact that they are much healthier than the deep fried version!

We are making chicken fries in the oven or you can use your air fryer. Either works beautifully and will give you the crispy delicious chicken “fries” you are craving. And you can make anything you want to serve on the side for veggies or even have these with your go-to salad. My kids are obsessed with this recipe and so are my husband and I. It is one of those dishes you can make for for the whole family and they won’t even know they’re “healthier”.

Tip: serve these with your favorite sauces or confidents for dipping! I love using a honey mustard.

What ingredients you need to make crispy gluten-free chicken fries:

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts – cut into thin strips. I don’t recommend thighs here as the shape won’t work as well for fry form
  • Eggs – I haven’t tried an egg replacement for this recipe
  • Tapioca flour or arrowroot flour – this helps the coating to stick and crisp too. You can also use corn starch
  • Almond flour – I haven’t tried another flour here. Do not sub with coconut flour!
  • Parmesan cheese – freshly grated parmesan cheese

How to make crispy chicken fries in oven or air fryer:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees or air fryer
  2. Whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside
  3. Mix together flours, cheese and spices in another shallow bowl
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or I like adding an oven-safe cooling rack to help crisp the chicken fries
  5. Begin dipping each chicken strip into the egg mixture (allow excess to drip off) then into the flour mixture and make sure to fully coat
  6. Add to baking sheet and repeat for remaining chicken
  7. Grease well with spray before cooking
  8. Bake in oven for about 18-20 minutes, flipping half way or airfryer for 12-15 minutes, flipping after 5-7 minutes
  9. Serve with desired sauces or condiments

Tips for success making chicken fries:

  • Use boneless skinless chicken breasts! I don’t recommend chicken thighs. And bone in and skin on could work but it’s a lot of work to take the bone out!
  • Dip chicken fries in any condiments or sauces you want. I love honey mustard with these and Jordan loves ketchup as do my kids
  • These are a great recipe to meal prep for the week. They stay good in the fridge for 5 days in an airtight container and you can easily reheat in oven, microwave or stovetop
  • My kids love these. Especially my 3 year old who calls them his “crispy chicken snack”
  • I don’t recommend subbing the flours and cheese in the recipe without compromising on the flavor and texture here
  • Serve these with your favorite sweet potato fries, veggies, salad, anything!
