Breaded Chicken Strips (SCD, AIP, Paleo)

February 18, 2018

As promised, today I bring you my fried chicken strip recipe!! Guys..I literally have NO idea how I've gone this long grain-free and NOT have thought of making chicken strips. This is such a game-changer and is bringing me back to half my childhood (the other half was pizza bites). 

A major perk of these is that they are not only fully AIP, but totally SCD as well, which can be summed up in two words...NO BLOATING! Something I didn't even realize was a possibility only 1 month ago.

 

 

I will stall no longer. LET'S GET TO IT!

 

Ingredients:

Chicken Strips

-Coconut Flour 

-Himalayan Pink Salt

-Garlic Powder

-Avocado Oil

-Coconut Flakes

-Organic Chicken Thighs 

 

**I did not provide measurements because every ingredient is dependent upon how much chicken you have. I eyeballed everything and there's no real chance of messing it up since you can always add more.

 

Honey Mustard:

-1/4 Cup Dijon (still not totally sure if this is SCD but it doesn't bother me. *This is a reintroduction on AIP*)

-1/4 Cup Honey 

 

Directions:

Step #1: Fill 3 separate bowls with avocado oil, coconut flakes, and coconut flour (mix in salt and garlic powder) for dipping. Lay out skillet on stovetop.

Step #2: Cut chicken into small strips (around 1 inch wide)

Step #3: Fill skillet with around 1 1/2 inches of avocado oil and heat on medium high. This should cover half way up the chicken strips.

Step #4: Begin my dipping chicken strips in coconut flour mixture and massage to thoroughly cover and aid in sticking.

Step #5: Fully emerge in bowl of avocado oil.

Step #6: Finish by dipping and pressing coconut flakes onto strips.

Step #7: Place in skillet and flip until no longer pink on the inside and crispy on the outside. Repeat steps 4-7 for remaining chicken strips.

***There will be burned coconut flakes after each batch (if you do more than one). Be sure to empty this out and re-pour avocado oil for each batch.

Step #8: Hand mix dijon and honey and set to side for dipping.

Step #9: Lay chicken strips on paper towel and serve immediately. Enjoy!

***I make enough to have extra to take to school and they are still good warmed up!
