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?

Those are indeed great ideas, thank you very much! Will look into the gluten free breading.

I like Tom Sawyer flour for stuff like meats and scalloped potatoes and use Pamela's Mix for baked goods.

We use gluten-free breadcrumbs or rice flour. Tried gluten-free panko and it was way too hard on my teeth!

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.

Better Batter has a great all purpose gluten-free flour. The Company's founder has 2 children with Celiac and is very careful about its products.    Its chocolate cupcake mix is awesome too.
