Excuse me, but who said that eating healthy meant only eating green things?
I, for one, oppose that idea.
Sure, salads are great…but not for every meal.
I believe in eating everything that we want – and with just a few modifications we can make it healthier.
For example…fried chicken. Who doesn’t enjoy the crispy, crunchy, satisfying morsels?
This recipe takes fried chicken to a happy, healthy place.
And it’s easier than you’d think to throw this recipe together. Watch the video below and I’ll show you how.
BTW Monkey the puppy does make a flash appearance towards the end — the little stinker got his own piece of Faux Fried Chicken 🙂
Here’s the recipe for Faux Fried Chicken…
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons fruit-only apricot preserves
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ½ cup almond flour
- ½ cup flax meal
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 lbs boneless, skinless organic chicken tenders
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13″x9″ baking pan with olive oil.
- In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, apricot preserves, mustard, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
- In another medium bowl combine the almond flour, flax meal, coconut flour, pepper, thyme, paprika and salt.
- Dip each chicken tender in the egg mixture, then dredge through the flour mixture. Place in the prepared pan.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Change oven to high broil for 2 minutes, flip each chicken tender and broil the other side for 2 minutes.
- Serve with a side of sugar-free BBQ sauce or organic honey mustard.
