1. In a bowl, combine ½ cup rice flour, 1 tsp paprika and ½ tsp each garlic powder, salt and pepper. 

2. Place 2 eggs, whisked, in a separate bowl. 

3. Cut 2 chicken breasts into strips. Coat in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then back in flour and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425°F until no longer pink inside, flipping halfway, about 20 minutes. 

Tip: When selecting chicken, look for organic varieties when your budget permits. Also ask your butcher about pasture-raised chickens or natural farms in your area that might follow similar methods without having the organic certification.
