Paleo Chicken tenders recipe
I had previously posted about this a while ago (see here)
It appears that the original blogger, Clean Eats in the Zoo, has taken down the recipe. Thank goodness I am old school sometimes and printed that baby out! I am reposting here for all of you who have asked and can’t get to the original recipe. These rival a certain famous chicken restaraunt chain’s tenders but with no msg, gluten, or other junk added.
This will feed 6 people.
3 lbs chicken tenderloins, skinless (I have used skinless thighs too)
3 TBSP olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 TBSP Paprika
1 TBSP garlic salt
1/4 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch (both work equally as well, I’ve used them both)
1/2 cup coconut oil or Palm shortening
1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, garlic salt and tapica/arrowroot flour. It will appear very wet and like it’s not enough flour. Just go with it
2. Heat coconut oil or palm shortening in a cast iron or other large skillet over medium - high heat. Add pieces of chicken when oil is hot. . Don’t crowd the chicken! fry for 3 minutes on each side until no longer pink. Remove to paper towels to drain. Repeat until all chicken is cooked. Eat promptly.
My personal observations: Coconut oil and palm shortening both work well here. The part about the crowding of the chicken is important because you will have a really hard time flipping those babies and you only have three minutes on each side… It is also helpful to cut the pieces into somewhat uniform sizes so that they all cook through in the 6 minutes.
You can save these and heat for left overs. I find it helpful to add a small dessicant packet (food grade) to the container since the “breading” is so moist. Otherwise, they can come out of the refrigerator in one lump (which you can just pull apart and heat up).
Sorry, I don’t have a good photo, just wanted to get this online before I forgot.
Here is a link to the Ido Portal 2.0 squat exercises. These are excellent for seeing where you are tight. (obviously this is not me doing the stretches here. lol)
Today for day two, I did two sets of 20 minutes while watching the superbowl. I did one round of the 2.0 stretches in each set. Loving this challenge!
Finally! Epic Bars are at Whole Foods in Franklin. I literally just did a happy dance and spent 5 minutes telling a group of people why they should buy them (after I snagged mine, of course)! @epicbar #paleo, #betterthanChristmas, #portablepaleo, #delicious, #epicbar, #getinmybelly, (at Whole Foods Market)
