For chicken and fish I have always dipped them in regular all purpose flour or breadcrumbs but seeking a healthier option, any ideas please?

Almond flour is a VERY common one, look up recipes yourself, I have used coconut for a softer breading, works well, I have a customer at my bakery who claims she loves dipping her chicken in chia seeds then frying them...bit extra crunchy.
I have used bean chips like Beanitos and Beanfields flavored chips pulsed in a food processor for breading (like using dorritos).
There are several companies that make gluten free breading like Ian's makes a panko like breading for extra crispy ones, there is another that makes a extra crispy pre seasoned almond one.

DID you know that some fast food chains use rice flour on their fried chicken?

For someone like you who does not need to be gluten-free, I don't think gluten-free substitutes are any healthier than gluten.  Sometimes, gluten-free is not as healthy, as they may  have less fiber and nutritents and added sugar or fat or gums to make up for the lack of gluten.

    This is great advice, my mother and grand mother (both Hispanic) always would get the freshest ones and dip in the sauce before rolling. When reheating it varied with tortillas on freshness (and how much of a hurry) but they either heated...
