Two Kid-Friendly Paleo Meals!

Posted on

Growth Spurts! Why do my kids always seem to get these at the same time? I feel like I have 4 teenage boys living  in my house right now. I have had to come up with extra meals to keep them full during this spurt in particular. Here are two meals that will be making a more regular appearance at our house.

Chicken Strips

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lbs. chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1/2 bag pork rinds
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten + 1 tablespoon water
  • 3-4 tablespoons coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Throw pork rinds in the food processor until they make a breading. Mix with the almond and flax seed meal, garlic powder, and salt
  2. Dip each chicken strip in the egg mixture and then the breading
  3. Melt coconut oil in pan over medium heat. Cook chicken strips about 4 minutes on each side or until they are no longer pink and are golden brown on the outside.

Note: You can also bake these in the oven 350 degrees F for about 20-30 minutes. I had sweet potatoes fries in my oven and I can’t multitask with my oven…Thanksgiving is my nightmare!

 

Chicken Drumsticks

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Throw drumsticks in a gallon size Ziploc bag and dump a bottle of dressing over them. Let them marinade at least an hour or up to 24 hours.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Place drumsticks on a baking tray- discard extra marinade.
  4. Bake for approx. 1 hour or until they are cooked through (internal temp should be 165). Enjoy!
