Recipe: Nuggets and French Fries - Football food.

Friday, August 8, 2014

Football season is back! Well, kinda. Last night the Broncos played the Seahawks in their first preseason game. (Broncos won, but who's surprised). To get in festive football mood I decided to make a paleo version of chicken nuggets and french fries with a side of homemade honey-mustard. 

Ingredients: 
3 chicken breasts (mine were small, so if yours are Costco size, just use two)
1 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
pepper to taste
2 eggs 
tiny little cutlets...

How to make: 
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line grease two baking sheets
2. Cut chicken breasts into small little nuggets.
3. Mix together coconut flour, parsley, paprika, garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper.
4. In a separate bowl, lightly beat two eggs.
5. Dry of the chicken and dredge them through the egg. Make sure they are coated, but allow the excess to drip off. Then dredge them through the flour mixture.
6. Bake for 8 minutes, flip them and back for another 8 minutes. Adam likes them extra crunchy, so when they were done, I turned the broiler on for about another two minutes. Make sure to watch them or else they will burn! 
Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce: 
3 tablespoons runny honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I use Annie’s Naturals)
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey and Dijon.  


On to the french fries! These were a little trial and error, but turned out delicious. And what's better than watching the Bronco's while watching french fries, if theres something better, I haven't found it yet. Now if they could just make paleo beer. 

Ingredients


  • 2 large yams 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 
  • paprika, salt & pepper

Here’s how I made the fries:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees 
2. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into little strips. (they cook down, so I made them a little thicker) 
3. Line a baking sheet with tin foil (I should have sprayed the tin foil with something because some stuck)  
4. Melt the coconut oil (I did 30 seconds) and pour over the sweet po'es. Then season with the paprika, salt and pepper.  
5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Again, to crisp them up, I broiled them for about 2 minutes. I like the black burnt edges so it was perfect for that. 
so good and so filling! 
try dipping them in the honey mustard... heaven.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by consuming Coconut Fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
