Paleo Chicken Fingers with Sweet Potato Fries


When in doubt, make some paleo chicken nuggets/strips, cut up a sweet potato for homemade fries, and because you need veggies eat some fresh salsa.

How long did this take me, I’d say about an hour. It depends on how fast you can “paleo-bread” chicken, which I learned last night takes me forever.

For the breading:

1/2 cup coconut flour
1 cup ish of Almond meal
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp-ish Cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and Pepper sprinkled.

Mix that all up!

Other stuff:

1 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (Sidenote: these are one of my favorite things to cook )
3 eggs
1 Sweet Potato
Spray Coconut Oil

Process:

I preheated the oven to 350. I defrosted my boneless thighs and then cut them into bits and strips. I scrambled the three eggs and created a quick assemble line that went: chicken – eggs-  ”bread” right to a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Once all my chicken was laid out on the sheet, I sprayed the top lightly with coconut oil to keep them moist (ugh I hate that word). I tossed those in the oven for about 30 minutes (I watched for the breading to turn to darker brown because I wanted them crispier).

Next up, I took two smaller sweet potatoes and just chopped them up in a “fry-like” fashion. I put these on another cookie sheet with parchment paper. I tried to not make them overlap but I filled the pan tightly. I sprayed them all with a decent amount of coconut oil and then sprinkled some sea salt on top. (Note: You can add any spice here, rosemary or even chipotle to make them spicier!) Once these are set I put them in the oven for 45 minutes-ish (the higher the temp on the oven the better, but since I was making chicken alongside it, this took longer) Also, you can cook these until they are soft or just wait until they hit your desired crunchiness!

Once I had everything on the plate I realized I needed a vegetable, which I hadn’t prepped but I had some delicious fresh salsa in the fridge so I added a couple spoonfuls to eat along side it.

Feel free to dip the chicken/sweet potato in a BBQ sauce or Ketchup. You can either make these yourself and make sure they are paleo, or just use what you got :-).

If you have any questions let me know, if not, go into the kitchen and eat up!
