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.

Grain-Free Salmon Patties - MamaShire.com

These grain-free salmon patties have been a hit in my home. They go nicely with roasted or steamed vegetables. When we’re having a busy week, having these made up ahead of time make it easy to get in a quick, nutritious meal.

If you’d like to freeze these be sure to freeze the patties in a thick freezer bag or container so the salmon smell doesn’t transfer onto your other foods.

Be sure to buy wild-caught salmon, it’s full of omega-3, vitamins and minerals. The healthy omega-3 fats help protect against cancer and osteoporosis. It improves your skin, brain function, heart health among many others. You can read more about the nutritional benefits of salmon at Dr. Axe’s website.

I add some of my favorite seasonings in these salmon patties; Herbamare and nutritional yeast. If you don’t have those feel free to leave them out or use your favorite seasonings. The Herbamare is an organic seasoning salt that has sea salt and organic herbs. The nutritional yeast adds a slight cheesy flavor.

Baked Cajun Chicken Strips

This recipe for Baked Cajun Chicken Strips is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. These are great for supper or lunch. They are also one of our favorite picnic dishes. I love to have these made up ahead of time and be able to grab them for a picnic or for some road trip food.

Use my Homemade Cajun Spice Mix for a gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free dish. Many ready-made spice mixes contain ingredients that might be allergens.

I use mayonnaise on the chicken strips to help them stay moist and tender. If you prefer, you can make your own mayonnaise from this recipe from Deep Roots at Home.

Hamburger Spinach Quiche

Hamburger Spinach Quiche made gluten & dairy free. Easy to make. Perfect for supper or make ahead for breakfast. Freezes well. Trim Healthy Mama – S

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

The classic quiche made a whole new way! It’s based on a favorite recipe that we had that needed to be upgraded to be gluten and dairy free. Easy way to make this gluten free is to make it without a crust, you won’t miss it. I used coconut milk in the quiche and I topped one with a dairy-free homemade cheese and the other with a sheep cheese. They both turned out delicious.

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com

The quiche on the left was made with the homemade dairy-free called Hello Cheese from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. The quiche on the right was made with Pecorino Romano, a sheep cheese. Manchego sheep cheese would work well here, too.

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com

The recipe makes enough for two quiches. I’ll make this for supper and then have the extra one to serve for breakfast or leftovers. Depending on the size of your family, you may not have any leftovers. They also freeze well.

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com

Tips for making this quiche:

  • If you can have sheep or goat cheese, you could use either on the top of the quiche. I usually use Pecorino Romano or Manchego sheep cheese.
  • To be completely dairy free you can use a vegan cheese recipe. I used the recipe in the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook for the “Hello Cheese”. It’s quick and simple to make. There are a few special ingredients that I had to purchase to make the “Hello Cheese”, but they will last a long time and you will be able to a lot of “cheese” from them. Some of those special ingredients are agar powder, collagen, nutritional yeast, and toasted sesame oil.
  • If you don’t have the THM cookbook here are two recipes that I found online for vegan cheese that you could try. I haven’t tried them, but they look easy to make. 15 minute Vegan Cheese and Homemade Vegan Cheese. If you are following Trim Healthy Mama these two recipes would have to be tweaked a little to make sure you were using on plan ingredients.
  • You can leave off the cheese completely and it will still be yummy.

Some dear friends served us this spicy dish several years ago and it immediately became a family favorite. The original recipe called for mozzarella cheese and was served on naan bread. When we had to go gluten and dairy free we didn’t want to lose this wonderful dish, so I recreated it to fit our new way of eating.

For a completely dairy-free version we also use the “Hello Cheese” from the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, which is shown below. We also like to make up extra spicy mayo for dipping sauce.

If you want the mayo to be spicier add about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle powder at a time, stirring, and then taste-testing to get it to your desired spiciness. I usually go by the color.

This spicy dish is delicious and super easy to make! It takes one skillet and just a little over 30 minutes to prepare. If you already have pre-cut chicken and onions, it would be even faster.

I was able to get most of these ingredients at Walmart and it would be so easy to keep these ingredients on hand for a quick go to meal.

I love to use chipotle chili powder in recipes, it adds a fun spicy kick. I normally use Spice Island Chipotle Chili Powder, if you can’t find it or another brand locally this chipotle chili from Amazon would be great.

I’ve updated our favorite turkey barbecue meatball recipe to be grain free, dairy free, and sugar free. These meatballs are perfect for dinner or for appetizers.

Tips:

  • I use a small cookie scoop to make my meatballs. I just scoop and drop them on the baking pan. So they aren’t perfectly round and that’s okay with me, but if you want them a little more roundish, just pick up each meatball and roll it in your hands to shape.
  • These are easy to make ahead and freeze. I like having meatballs already to go for quick prep on a weeknight. Pull out how many meatballs you want to serve and adjust the sauce ingredients or leave as is to have extra sauce and then bake.

My dear friend, Carla, used to make an amazing lasagna that was legendary in our circles. Her recipe called for extra basil and it was so good. Since going gluten and dairy-free, I have missed that lasagna and I’ve had more than one little “sigh” thinking back on it.

When the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook came out this fall, I was happy to see that there were many dairy-free recipes in the book, but then I came across the Lazy Lasagna, which is not dairy-free. Oh, I wanted lasagna. Their recipe uses spinach in place of noodles and it got me to thinking, how can I make a lasagna like that, but dairy-free. I often use sheep cheese as a cow-dairy replacement, but I wanted something completely dairy-free. Then I remembered the white sauce that I make for my baked salmon and wondered if it could work as a dairy replacement in lasagna.

So I combined three different recipes to come up with this gluten-free, dairy-free delicious easy lasagna. I hope your family loves it as much as mine does. It’s good to have lasagna back in our lives!

 

Notes on a couple ingredients used in my Easy Lasagna:

  • This recipe uses glucomannan which is a natural thickener from the konjac plant and is a low-glycemic food. It only takes a little bit to thicken your recipes. This is an ingredient that you probably won’t find at a local store, but you will be able to find it on Amazon or at Trim Healthy Mama.
  • I also have nutritional yeast in this recipe. This gives the white sauce a nice cheesy flavor. You may not be able to find it locally either. I buy mine from Amazon. If you’d like further information on the health benefits of nutritional yeast, there’s a great article on Dr. Axe’s website.

This recipe for chicken patties is one that I have used for years, but I’ve updated it to be grain-free, dairy-free, and on plan with Trim Healthy Mama. They are sure to be a hit with your family. Enjoy them with spicy mayo, ranch dip, marinara sauce, or in a sandwich, there are so many different ways to serve these patties.

You can double or triple this recipe and freeze the extras. They don’t take long to thaw, just heat them up in the oven or a skillet on the stove top for a super quick meal.

Here is a funny little story of my history with chicken patties. When I was first married I was a very bad cook. I would buy frozen chicken patties and fry them for my husband. The funny part is that I burned them every. single. time. And then I would serve them with the darkest side down, hoping he wouldn’t notice. Ha. He must have really loved me. Here’s a little lesson in frying anything – pay attention!

Chicken-Patties-Grain-Free - MamaShire.com

A food processor makes mincing the cooked chicken a breeze, but if you don’t have one you can shred and then mince your chicken using a cutting board and a chef’s knife.

You can change up the flavor of the patties by adding in some cajun spice, a little more chili powder, or your family’s favorite seasonings.
