Paleo Chicken and Biscuits
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. What delicious bites did you have on your Thanksgiving table? Our table was filled with treats for everyone, even Parker our dog got a few turkey scraps for his Thanksgiving dinner. For breakfast over the long holiday weekend I decided to give the biscuits from Paleo Comfort Foods cookbook a try. I have to say they aren’t the biscuits my grandmother made while growing up in the south, but for a girl that has gone Paleo I can’t complain. I added some coconut chicken nuggets to the biscuits and here we have it….Chicken and Biscuits. If you want you can use some Paleo BBQ sauce on this little biscuit sandwich and it is delicious.
I’m going to have to make this short as I am busy planning and organizing a birthday party for my little ones that is coming up this weekend. Hard to believe, but they will be 4! Crazy! I’m amazed how times flies. Now off to make treats for them to take to school tomorrow on their “real” birthday. I’ll be back later this week with one my new favorite Paleo muffin recipe. I’m telling you these muffins are addicting so say tune. Now to the biscuits….
6 large egg whites
1/4 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, mix two flours, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or fork, cut in coconut oil. You want to make a crumbly mixture. Let sit in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are very frothy.
Remove flour mixture from refrigerator, and gently fold in the egg whites, stirring to combine. The dough should be wet. If too dry, the biscuits will turn out dry after baking.
Spoon the biscuit batter onto a greased sheet pan or into muffin tins. I actually shaped them into biscuit shapes with my hands.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden brown.
For the chicken, I used my Coconut Chicken Nuggetrecipe and just made the “nuggets” slightly bigger. Now put the two together to make a little chicken biscuit. And if you want, top the chicken with a Paleo friendly sauce before placing the biscuit top on.
