Who doesn’t like fried chicken? How about a gluten free healthy version that tastes amazing without all the unnecessary fat and calories. This is my version that, if I do say so myself, hits the spot.
Can you believe we’re in June already? Summer is on our doorstep and Father’s Day is around the corner so I decided to revisit my version of fried chicken, a sure-fire hit for both occasions!
BTW did I add that this is baked not fried chicken. How ’bout that?
I’ve made this chicken before (click here for recipe) but this time I paired it with a seasonal strawberry salad since strawberries are gorgeous right now. It’s a super easy salad including the dressing. Simple and delicious, just my style.
To update this recipe to a fully Paleo version, you can substitute nut meal/flour for the GF bread crumbs. FYI, you can buy nut meal from Bob’s Red Mill or, if you’re adventurous, you can make your own.
Also, if your version of Paleo eating doesn’t include vinegar, you can substitute lemon juice. It won’t be near as tasty, and you will have to adjust quantities, but feel free.
STRAWBERRY SALAD RECIPE:
4 cups organic mixed greens
1 cup walnuts – toasted in hot dry saute pan ’til golden
1 cup organic strawberries – sliced
I highly recommend choosing organic strawberries because you don’t want to eat a lovely salad laced in pesticides, right?
Aged Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp organic honey
3/4 cup olive oil
In a large bowl combine the lettuce, nuts and strawberries. Toss gently.
I have the easiest quickest way to make this vinaigrette: Put everything in a plastic or glass jar and give it a good ol’ shake. Taste and season.
Drizzle enough dressing to lightly coat the greens but don’t drown them. You should have some leftover dressing for next time.
