Arielle shows you a clean homemade chicken finger recipe, using organic chicken. The chicken is coated in almond flour and “fried” in coconut oil.
Today, Arielle cleans up a childhood favorite – chicken fingers! Clean eating doesn’t mean saying no to animal protein, it just depends on the quality of the meat. Arielle chooses organic chicken for this recipe.
First, you will crack the eggs, which Arielle likes to use certified humane or pasture-raised eggs. Dip your raw chicken into the eggs and then pat the chicken down into the almond meal mixture.
Next, Arielle places coconut oil in a heated pan. Coconut oil is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and is high heat. It’s great for “frying” stuff like chicken fingers. Then you can add the chicken to your pan, making sure none of the chicken is overlapping. Now you can add a little bit of salt and pepper, or you could’ve added it to the almond meal mixture.
Once they’re golden brown on each side, which usually takes about 7 minutes per side, remove them from the pan and place on a plate. Arielle likes to line the plate with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
So much better than fast food, and your body will be thanking you! Don’t forget, read ingredients and eat well.
