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.
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 Almond Meal
½ cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon Dried Thyme
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13″x9″ baking pan with coconut 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, almond 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.
