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 this family favorite 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.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets
  • Author: MamaShire
  • 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.

One-Pan Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” – Easy Keto Dinners Review

Easy to make One-Pan Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” from Easy Keto Dinners by Carolyn Ketchum! Keto, Low-carb, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, THM-S

Jamaican Jerk Chicken with cauliflower rice and lime wedges.

(Some links in this post are affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.) *I did receive this Easy Keto Dinner Cookbook for free. All views are my own!

Jamaican Jerk Chicken & "Rice" served with lime wedges!

This easy to make dinner recipe is from Carolyn Ketchum’s brand new cookbook Easy Keto Dinners! It’s coming out in just a few days and is available for pre-order now!

I’ve been having so much fun looking through this cookbook and trying to decide what I wanted to make first!

Picture of Carolyn Ketchum's cookbook, Easy Keto Dinners.

Carolyn was so kind to let me share one of her recipes with you!

I decided to go with Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” because I used to use a store-bought Jamaican Jerk marinade for my chicken before our family went gluten free.  And I hadn’t tried to recreate that flavor so I was excited to try Carolyn’s recipe for the Jamaican Jerk seasoning!

One-pot Jamaican Jerk Chicken & "Rice" Dinner in a cast iron skillet.

I loved that this recipe was easy to make and I used only one pan! To make prep time even easier I used frozen diced onions and frozen riced cauliflower.

All the recipes in Carolyn’s new cookbook look to be very easy to make and look so good – there’s a picture for every recipe! A few of the other recipes I’m looking forward to trying are Buffalo Chicken Chowder, French Onion Pot Roast, and Bacon Sloppy Joes.

About half of the recipes in Easy Keto Dinners are dairy free! That’s really important for me as my family and cow-dairy just don’t get along well.

Easy Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe with lime wedges

When I shared this with my daughter, she loved it and wanted to know where the recipe was because she didn’t want to ever lose it! She also told me she wanted to have this weekly! Well, okay then! We gave this recipe and the whole book a 2 thumbs up!

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama this recipe is an S.

Ingredients

Jerk Seasoning

1 1/2 teaspoons erythritol
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice

2 tablespoons avocado oil, for the pan
1/4 cup chopped onions

Lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the jerk seasoning. Rub the seasoning blend all over the chicken.

Easy Homemade Hamburger Helper Italian & Taco (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Easy to make homemade hamburger helper made two ways! Italian and Taco! Both are one-pot dinners, gluten-free, and dairy-free! On plan with Trim Healthy Mama!

Easy one pot dinner of easy homemade hamburger helper - Taco version

Years ago, I would use a lot of boxed mixes. They were easy and there was usually coupons for them making this type of meal very inexpensive.

One day when I was having my daughters help me with supper I told them to just read the box to know how to make it. It hit me that day, that I needed to teach them more about cooking with real ingredients and not just purchased mixes.

Later when we had to switch to eating gluten and dairy free it was a blessing that we had already begun cooking with whole foods as it made the transition easier. Don’t get me wrong, it was still hard, but I think overall it helped that transition to make more sense.

These two easy homemade hamburger helper variations are so easy to make! Yes, it does called for a couple of packaged short cuts, but they are still healthy options to make supper come together quickly and inexpensively!

One ingredient you might not be used to using is nutritional yeast. It’s fairly inexpensive and gives food a wonderful cheesy flavor. I use it in a lot of my recipes. It’s also a good source of B vitamins.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama these meals are an S. If you prefer you can rinse the ground beef with hot water and they would be an FP meal.

I wanted you to have a visual of what to look for when you’re buying gluten-free ingredients.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili Ingredients

 

All but one of these products has “gluten free” labeled directly on their label. They do a great job and it makes my job at the grocery store so much easier! Thank you!

See that little bottle of McCormick’s Chili Powder….the one that doesn’t have a red circle showing off the wonderful “gluten free” label. In a situation like this, looking on the company’s website is the next best thing to see if it’s gluten free or not.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili. Ground beef being rinsed with hot water.

If you’re following Trim Healthy Mama, you know that you want to separate your carbs (E meals) and fats (S Meals) for your meals. When I use ground beef in an E meal (a meal that contains a healthy amount of carbs) I will rinse off the cooked beef with hot water to rinse off any extra fat. In the picture above I’m using hot water from my tea kettle to do the rinsing.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili

This is such an easy meal to put together and you could certainly use an Instant Pot to cook it in, but putting it in a big pot like this one and using my stove top doesn’t take long at all. I usually brown the ground beef in my big 6-quart Lodge Dutch oven and then rinse it off, put it back in the pot with all the other ingredients and let it cook for about 20-25 minutes. Of course, you can let it simmer for much longer if you like, but after 20 or so minutes it’s ready. After browning the beef you could also put all the ingredients in a slow cooker for on low for 4 hours.

Air-Fried Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks made in an air-fryer. Trim Healthy Mama-S

I know when you think of a recipe like this you’re usually thinking buffalo chicken wings, but I like drumsticks better than wings. So here’s a recipe for you for Buffalo chicken drumsticks made in an air fryer. The air fryer that I use is an Avalon Bay Air Fryer. It’s super easy to use and it’s price point is easier on the budget.

One of the reasons I like frying my chicken in an air fryer is because you don’t have to keep such a close eye on it like you do when you’re frying it in a bunch of oil, plus you’re not using a lot of oil!

Tips for air-fried chicken:

Before you put your chicken in the air-fryer, dry it with a paper towel to get rid of any excess moisture.

Once you place your chicken in the basket, spritz it with avocado or olive oil using a mister/sprayer. My favorite mister/sprayer is this Evo set. It’s easy to keep avocado oil in one and olive oil in the other so that you have either for whenever you need them.

Another tip for when you are using the air-fryer or frying anything is if you give your food a light sprinkling of pepper and then when it’s time to turn them over it’s easy to see which ones you have already turned.

I use glucommanan powder in my sauce to thicken it. If you haven’t used it before, it’s a low-carb thickener and you do not need to use very much. If you buy a container of it, it will last a long time. I use it in a lot of my frosty type drinks, like Frosted Lemonade and Frosted Mocha.

My favorite brand of store-bought mayonnaise is Just Mayo. I like that it’s free of a lot of the common allergen’s including soy! I have a family member that can’t have soy and so many times when you find something gluten free and dairy free it will include soy. So Just Mayo makes this mama happy! Of course, if you prefer you can make your mayo from scratch.

Deliciously crisp and tender chicken legs with a creamy buffalo sauce.

  • Author: MamaShire
  • Yield: 2-3 servings
  • Category: Dinner

Ingredients

5-6 chicken legs (depends on the size of your air-fryer’s basket)
Avocado oil or olive oil in a mister
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup gluten-free chicken broth
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I like Just Mayo)
2 tablespoons Frank’s hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon glucomannan powder

Instructions

Rinse chicken legs and pat dry with a paper towel. Mist the air-fryer basket with oil and place chicken legs in the basket. Mist the top side of the chicken legs with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Air fry the chicken legs at 375° for 10 minutes. Turn the legs over and spritz with oil and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Air fry again for 10 minutes.

Check on the chicken legs, they will need 5-10 more minutes of air frying so give them another spritz of oil and turn them if needed then continue air frying.

After about 20 minutes of air frying the chicken legs, begin making the sauce. Put the chicken broth, mayonaise, hot sauce, onion powder in a small pan over medium-low heat and whisk to make smooth. While whisking slowly add the glucomannan powder. Whisk for about a minute and continue heating on medium-low heat.

Whisk the sauce a few times as it heats up. It will begin to thicken after 5-6 minutes. Do not add anymore glucomannan. It really only takes a little bit to thicken. Once it’s heated and thickened remove from heat.

Check the legs. They should be crispy and fried. Use a fork and knife and cut one to make sure the juices are clear. The meat should be very tender.

Use tongs to move legs to a serving platter and pour the buffalo sauce over the legs. You can also put some of the sauce in a small bowl to use as a dipping sauce. Enjoy!

 

This recipe was inspired from a recipe in the book Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot.

This is my take on P. F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef. They prepare theirs with steak strips and I wondered if we could get the same yummy taste using ground beef. Knowing how easy egg roll in a bowl is to make I decided to combine these two dishes and it turned out amazing.

The atmosphere and the food of P. F. Chang’s is so wonderful and to be able to recreate this taste at home and inexpensively is a win for me!

I decided to use a 16 oz. bag of coleslaw to make this dish even quicker. If you prefer to shred the cabbage yourself you would need about 5 cups and also 1 shredded carrot.

Of course you can use chop sticks to make this dish more fun to eat like my family does, but I can’t seem to get the hang of them so I’ll keep with my fork.

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP

The glucomannan powder in this recipe is a carb-free thickener that can be used as a replacement for cornstarch. This powder is made from the konjac root and it doesn’t take much to achieve it’s thickening power. It’s mixed with the sweetener and ginger to make sure it spreads out nicely as it can clump up if you just drop it into a recipe. I use it in my dairy-free smoothies to get a creamy texture.

Trim Healthy Mamas this recipe is an FP. You can serve this with brown rice and make this meal an E. Keep your portion to 1/4 of the recipe or less to keep it an FP or E.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Category: Dinner

Ingredients

Instructions

In a large skillet brown the ground beef. Drain off fat and rinse ground beef with hot water to quickly drain off any extra fat. Place ground beef back in skillet and begin reheating on medium heat.

Stir in the sliced green onions and garlic. Carefully pour in the coconut aminos and water and stir to mix.

In a small bowl mix together the erythritol, glucomannan, and ginger. Then add to the skillet.

Drizzle in the blackstrap molasses.

Add in the package of coleslaw. Stir to combine. Cover and let cook over medium heat for ten minutes stirring occasionally.

Notes

Trim Healthy Mamas, this recipe can be used as is, as an FP. And that would be one serving which is 1/4 of the entire dish.

It’s what you serve with it that will change it to an E or an S.

Serve it with brown rice and the rice will give it the good carbs to make it an E.

Serve it with other foods that are in the S category and it will be an S. You won’t need to rinse the beef if you are wanting it to be an S.

If you prefer you can use 5 cups shredded cabbage and 1 shredded carrot in place of the coleslaw.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

Simple ingredients go together to make this easy comfort meal. Growing up this would be something that my mom or my grandmother would put together and cook in their pressure cookers. With the Instant Pot, it’s even easier and way less scary. I remember my mom telling us kids to get out of the kitchen when she was using the pressure cooker. It seemed scary to us, but maybe that was her way of getting a few minutes of quiet.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

Dicing the onion and slicing the sausage will be the only work that you’ll have to do to put this meal together. You could also use diced frozen onions for an even simpler prep time. Put all the ingredients in the Instant Pot with 2 cups of chicken broth, secure the lid and set 6 minutes on the manual setting. When the time is up use the quick release method of releasing the steam.

  • I like Miller Chicken Sausage because it’s free of gluten, nitrites, nitrates, and comes in at just 2 grams of carbs per link. If you don’t have this brand in your area you can use any other sausage that you would like as long as it’s on plan with Trim Healthy Mama ( 2 grams of carb or less per serving)
  • I also use Herbamare seasoning, it’s a favorite of our family, but you can use your favorite seasoning salt.
  • Depending on the fat grams in the sausage this could drop into an FP meal.
