Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

I don’t remember when chicken nuggets first came on the scene, but I think the first nuggets I had were at McDonalds years ago. I thought they were pretty wonderful, especially dipped in honey-mustard sauce.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

Since going gluten-free and following Trim Healthy Mama, I need to make our chicken nuggets from scratch. I call these lazy chicken nuggets because there are days, probably more often than not, that I don’t want to have to do much to get supper on the table. So, instead of dipping the little chicken pieces in eggs and then picking each one out and then dredging them in the batter, I just pour the eggs on the chicken and then pour the breading over it all. Give it a stir and then get them to frying. The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the chicken breasts into pieces.

I use red palm oil in this recipe, because I think it adds a wonderful flavor and a lovely golden color to your food. If you don’t have any feel free to use coconut oil only.

  • Yield: 5 servings
  • Category: Dinner

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 whole eggs, or 2 egg yolks (only if you already have some separated), whisked with a fork
  • 1/2 cup flaxmeal
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 4 tablespoons red palm oil
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken breasts in 1 to 2 inch pieces.
  2. Begin heating skillet with red palm oil and coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. Place chicken breasts in pie pan or other shallow dish.
  4. Pour eggs over chicken and stir around with a fork, making sure that the egg covers the chicken pieces.
  5. In a small bowl mix flaxmeal, coconut flour, spices, and salt together. Spread over chicken. Stir chicken around to coat with the breading.
  6. Once the oil in the skillet is hot, carefully place chicken in skillet without crowding too much. If all the chicken doesn’t fit in the skillet you may need to fry a second batch, if so add a little more oil to the pan before frying the second batch. Or use 2 skillets at the same time.
  7. Turn after 4-5 minutes and continue frying on other side another 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt brings back memories of my childhood. I remember one summer when I was little and we had a large family reunion the adults were making peach ice cream for everyone. They were using one of those crank ice cream makers and family members were taking turns cranking the machine, while everyone was anxiously awaiting. Well, I know I was anxiously awaiting. It was such a novelty to me to have homemade ice cream and for it to have peaches in it. I’m thinking it was my grandfather’s favorite flavor.

After what seemed like forever to my young mind, they started passing those bowls of creamy goodness out to everyone. I remember taking those first few bites of peachy goodness and thinking the world was a wonderful place. It’s a snapshot in my mind of a perfect summer day with family and the most delicious peach ice cream man could make.

Fast forward to today and we have the blessing of being able to make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt in a simple to use electric ice cream maker. I love to use my ice cream maker, especially now that our family needs to eat dairy-free we can still enjoy delicious and healthy desserts like this one.

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt is so simple and easy to make, just blend the ingredients and put it all in the ice cream maker and let it do it’s magic. I’ve added in the flavors of vanilla and just a bit of ginger to make the peach flavor really shine.

Strawberry Banana Frosty

Strawberry Banana Frosty - Dairy-free - Sugar-free

I remember when I was younger my mom and I stopping by my future husband’s home and visiting with him. We had just stopped at Dairy Queen and picked up a strawberry banana shake – my favorite. I remember us all standing by his front porch and talking while I was sipping on that shake and thinking he is so handsome. It’s funny how food can be so attached to a memory isn’t it?

Now days I keep away from dairy and sugar so I had to come up with a replacement. This shake brings me right back to that summery day years ago and it’s still so yummy. Plus, now I can serve it to that handsome man I married and feel good about giving him a good, healthy treat.

  • I add collagen in my drinks to get an extra boost of nutrition and protein. It’s optional, but I think you would like it. You can read about all the benefits of collagen at Dr. Axe’s site. I recommend Custom Collagen or THM Integral Collagen.
  • I also add glucomannan to my shake to help thicken it up a little and give it a bit of creaminess. Without having cow-dairy you have to work a little harder to get that lovely creamy effect and the glucomannan really helps with that. Be careful to add it slowly to your foods when you use it, as it can clump up if not. It’s a healthy, no-carb, starch and a little goes a long way. I recommend Now Glucomannan or THM Glucomannan

Strawberry Banana Frosty photography

I wanted to add this photo to my post to give you a little peak at what happens when I am doing a photoshoot for my recipes. My youngest daughter, Emily Rose, is an excellent photographer and has been teaching me the ins and outs of phototgraphy. Often times when I get my food all set up for a shoot, she’ll go grab her camera and have some fun shooting, too. I found this photo on her camera capturing me “trying” to get the right shot. When you see an excellent photo on my blog, just know that it’s probably her work.

Nutiva Coconut Oil Butter Flavor

Buttery Lemon Pepper Broccoli - Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Nutritional Yeast

Nutiva sent me a jar of their Buttery Coconut Oil to try for free and I was so excited to receive it, because it was already on my list to buy. I had been seeing it around online, reading what others were saying, and was looking forward to trying it myself. The following opinions are all mine!

I was really curious as to how they came up with a buttery flavor that was organic.  This is from Nutiva’s website describing what the buttery flavor is made from:

Our vegan “buttery flavor” is made from pure certified organic non -GMO plants including sunflower, coconut and mint.

One of the first things I thought of using it on was vegetables. Since our family had to quit using cow-dairy several years ago, I really miss the taste of butter and buttery veggies sounded so good. I normally use refined coconut oil when cooking my veggies, so I was really looking forward to trying it this way. I put it together with two of my favorite ingredients that I like to add to broccoli – lemon pepper seasoning and nutritional yeast. If you haven’t tried nutritional yeast before, it gives food a cheesy flavor. With the addition of the Buttery Coconut Oil it was delicious, sort of like a dairy dream.

My family has also been enjoying it on biscuits, toast, and grilled sheep cheese sandwiches. I’ll be needing more of it since our jar is already almost cleaned out. Thank you, Nutiva, for making such a good tasting and healthy way to add butter flavor back in our lives!
