flour replacement for chicken francaise?

What do you think would work best, or at all?

I am not thinking almond flour, and even if coconut flour would work, I don't want to use that.... so what do you think?

Without the recipe, not sure I could offer any suggestions on a replacement. Is this a coated meat baked/fried dish? Is it a sauce that uses the flour to thicken? Can you post the recipe please?

Basically thin chicken cutlets dredged in egg and flour, and cooked in a lemon, butter, wine reduction. Maybe almond flour would be OK. But the family hates coconut anything.

I'll tell ya, I don't much like coconut flour to dredge meat, either, so I don't blame them for not liking it to coat meats. What I'm liking best for this type of coating is a basting of homemade mayo and well-seasoned crushed pork rinds. You really get a crispy surface with rinds and, depending on the seasonings you put into the rinds, it gives a really nice flavor, too. I use my seafood seasoning mix in my rinds most often.

for a light coating on chicken pieces when I do chicken piccata or chicken parmesan, I use ouizoid's better than flour mix with some seasoning. It gets nice and crispy when sauteed and keeps its texture when combined with the other ingredients.

OK, I used almond flour and it was "ok", but not great.... I'm usually an excellent cook, but I think I messed this dish up anyway by using too much lemon juice.

Walmarts are different in the east than ours in the west. That's what my sister tells me. I had her send me a pic of one. And it is different.

We have superstores out here.

We have superstores on the east too. The one I go to is one. But they don't all carry the same products, apparently. I have been told by a few people that I can get Paula Deen's SF BBQ sauce at Walmart, but none of the 3 Walmart stores near me carry it.
