Sometimes you have to recreate a childhood classic, this is my favourite recipe to make for when children come to dinner because who doesn’t like crispy chicken! This might also be the recipe to convert some of family members that aren’t quite Paleo yet. My daughter loves dipping her chicken in the homemade ketchup too.
This is great recipe to make with children too because you can get a little messy dipping the chicken in the egg and coconut flour.
We don’t eat a lot of meat these days, when we do I choose to buy organically and free-range. This is kinder to the animal but also to the chickens who have to be outside for a % of time and therefore they can roam in the sunlight and peck at the grass, leaves and bugs eating them. This means that you are naturally providing your body with the essential fatty acid Omega 3 in a more balanced ratio to Omega 6 than in conventional chicken. Conventional chickens are usually fed what is cheap and available so usually GMO corn and soy, they can be caged their entire miserable lives without sunlight too.
If organic seems expensive, we balance our budget by making sure our plate is full of beautiful organic vegetables like the spiralized ones here.
