This is my first meat post on the blog and I hope it doesn’t offend anyone. There is a vegetarian alternative listed. So please use that if you like. It just isn’t feasible for me to run a spin-off flexitarian blog at the moment. So, consider this a recipe for your meat-eating husband and/or kids if you like. Or ignore it altogether if you don’t. I hope you’ll understand our journey to a flexitarian Paleo diet is for health reasons and I’d never want to offend anyone with my choices.
All that being said. This recipe was a HUGE hit. I think it’d also be awesome with chickpeas. The girls wanted “popcorn and chicken” for lunch. So we made popcorn chicken. 🙂
It turned out great and we’ve made it a second time since! Enjoy!
Popcorn Chicken Nuggets
2 pounds chicken breast (cut into bite sized chunks)
1/2 cup raw milk or coconut milk
1 cup almond flour or 1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons black pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
Vegetarian alternative: Use cooked chickpeas instead of chicken!
Soak chicken in milk and honey for up to an hour. Drain chicken. Toss all dry ingredients in a bag and shake. Toss chicken into bag, shake to coat.
By the way, if you deep fry in coconut oil, you’ll want to save every last drop for more frying. We absolutely LOVE this grease keeper that comes with a great strain to get all the fried bits out and save that precious oil! We also use another by the stove to save bacon grease. Yum!
