Healthy πŸ’ͺ Popcorn 🍿 Chicken πŸ” (with pictures!)

Hey guys! πŸ‘‹

A few weeks ago I really felt like some popcorn chicken so I looked up a recipe and it only had tapioca starch and I thought that sounded a bit boring so I decided to make my own recipe up! 🀩

I tested this recipe every week for a few weeks (to my family’s delight 😍) and thought that it was good enough to put on my blog! 🀀

So yesterday I made it for dinner and took pics of me making it so I could put it here! πŸΏπŸ”

Let’s get into it!!!!!!!!! 🀀🀀🀀

(I would recommend that you have a second person helping you make this, I had my mum, she helped cook them so that they all wouldn’t burn)

Time: about 45 mins prep and 30 mins cooking 🍽

Makes: enough for 5 people (about 10-12 each)

Chicken Coating:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp chicken bone broth powder (optional if you don’t have it )
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • Around 1 kg free-range chicken breast
  • Ghee for frying

1. Measure the all chicken coating ingredients into medium sized mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

2. Chop up the chicken into bite sized pieces.

3. Get 2 baking trays and line them with baking paper.

i know it looks gross but its so much easier than doing it individually! πŸ‘

4. Whisk the eggs in a different bowl and add the chopped up chicken. Mix the eggs and chicken together (this is much eaiser then dipping them individually).

5. Put about half of the chicken coating in a different bowl.

6. Lay some pieces of chicken in the larger bowl, then sprinkle the other bowl’s coating on top and then just toss it to get the coating to stick.

7. Place the pieces of coated chicken on to the baking paper lined trays and repeat step 6 until all the chicken has been used up.

8. Put about enough ghee to cover the bottom of the pans in 4 pans (it makes it way faster to have more pans) and heat on medium-high heat the ghee until it is melted and hot.

9. Place chicken in the pan(s) (careful not to over crowd) and once they are nice and golden-brown and crispy on one side, flip them over to cook on the other side.

10. UPDATE: When you think they are done ( I cut one in half to make sure) place the popcorn chickens on a paper towel lined plate (this helps to keep ’em nice and crispy) and then cook the rest, cleaning the pans and replacing the ghee in between batches to prevent the old bits of coating burning.

11. Once all the popcorn chickens are cooked, serve them up! (maybe with a salad or something)

ENJOY!!

Hellloo Postitve Potatoes! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

The other day we picked up my cuz (DanTMoore.com is his website 😁), and he had made apple crumble for food tech and he was eating it. 🀀

I was sooooooo jealous of him eating it, that I thought I would make some apple crumble, too! πŸ˜‰

Then I remembered that our oven is broken. 😐

I have made many mug cakes (mmmmmm!) so I thought why don’t I make apple crumble in a mug?? πŸ˜‹

Everyone thought I was a little crazy with idea of cooking apple crumble in a microwave… 🀨

So I did it. 😏

I fed it to my family and they LOVED it! 😍

It isn’t too sweet, which is perfect!! ❀

I really hope you love this recipe as much as me and my family do!! 🀩

  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 baking powder

Method:

Peel, core and slice the apple into small pieces.

In a microwaverble mug put the apple pieces, then add the honey and cinnamon.

So here’s the birthday recipe I promised you! I hope you love my creation just as much as my family and I love it!

These are so, so delicious! I make them every second day because me, my mum, dad and brother eat these Chocolate Date Cookies very fast. We all try to eat them slowly but we can’t! I made them yesterday and have one cookie leftover…..make that half a cookie…….

Chocolate (GAPS)

One day I decided to make a chocolate sauce; I ended up with chocolate.

MAKES: 30 small chocolates TIME: 10-15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2-3 tbsp cacao powder (depending on how dark you like your chocolate)
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil (depending on how coconutty you like your chocolate)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

CrΔ›pes (GAPS)

Different recipes I have read, gave me the idea for this recipe.

MAKES: 2-3 CrΔ›pes TIME: 5-10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 heaped tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp water
  • salt and pepper

METHOD: Mix all ingredients together in bowl. I know, when you start mixing it looks like it will never combine, but just keep mixing until it is just a white, thick liquid. When you are nearly done mixing, heat a pan on high. Once finished mixing the CrΔ›pe mixture, test to see if pan is hot by dropping a tiny bit of water on pan. If it sizzles and evaporates pan is hot, if not heat for longer. Pour enough mixure into pan to thinly coat. Cook CrΔ›pe until slightly brown. Flip to cook otherside. Repeat for other CrΔ›pes. Store in fridge. Enjoy!
