Colonel Sanders eat your fat clogged heart out! I have used my own “7 Secret Herbs & Spices” (not going to be a secret for much longer is it?) and created my own deliciously healthy version of this KFC classic. I loved this so much I did it with some fish the next day but cooked the fish in the frypan not the oven.
High protein, not deep fried and using no processed cr@p, you are going to love these tasty little morsels! No almond meal? Almond meal is SO easy to make! Raw almonds, in the food processor, blend until they are powder… Magic and MUCH cheaper than the bags at the shop. Just do it.
4 eshallots- chopped in chunks
3 lge chicken breasts, chopped in chunks
1 cup coconut (dessicated or shredded is fine)
1 cup almond meal
2 tsp ground black pepper
1-2 tsp rock salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried rosemary
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried mint
Preheat your oven to 200C. In your food processor pop herbs, spices, almond meal and coconut and blitz until it is all a rough crumb consistency. Remove and place in a bowl. Now add your chicken and eshallots to the food processor and turn it into mince. Take a spoonful at a time of mince, shape it into “nuggets”, roll in the crumb mixture to coat completely. Place on a wire rack over an oven tray and pop in the oven for 20-30mins or until browned on the outside. Depending on how big or small you made your nuggets will depend on how long they take to cook. Mine seemed to get bigger as I got lazier while making them so mine took a bit longer. You can definitely chuck these in a frypan and cook them that way too. Freeze them, eat them, feed them to your kids.2
