- If you don’t know how to butterfly a chicken breast, then just ask your butcher. Most butchers will be glad to do this for you.
- Instead of coconut oil, you can use a different paleo-friendly fat. Make sure the oil that you use can be heated to high temperatures.
- Almond flour in some countries is called almond meal or ground almonds. They're all usually the same product.
- If you don’t have any chicken stock for this dish, then you can replace it with a different stock. You can replace it with just plain water, but you might not get as much flavor as you would if you were to use stock or broth.
